We Will Use Our Freedom

Now I want to explain that I remain a dove. I believe in peace. I believe in living side by side as the sisters and brothers we were created to be. I do not believe that all that is Divine created the peoples who live on this planet to fight and kill each other. That is illogical. We were certainly not created here to kill children and women with any weapons but certainly not chemical weapons. Sarin is the chemical used in the attack on the Tokoyo subway. But Syria has used them upon its own citizens. I condemn the use of chemical weapons, as had the international community for 100 years. There was an agreement put in place over 100 years ago that no country will in future use chemicals to kill human beings.

I am sharing this video with you all because of the treatment of this protester. Having had experience protesting, I will say that things often get out of order. I am not talking today  about war or peace. I am talking about the right that this young woman had to protest. To stand and play her banjo and speak her truth. One small young women and all of those cops to handcuff her. My point today is that no matter whether you believe that we should stop Assad from continuing the chemical warfare,  we live in the United States of America and we the people have the right to gather in groups and to protest what our country is doing. This is part of freedom.

We the people have the right to meet and to say what we believe to be true. Freedom is for all citizens and people in our country. The police were, I feel, sexist in their actions of taking this young woman into custody. They should have left her alone but chose to try to humiliate her and violate her rights as an American citizen. Situations in America are violent enough, they are filled with enough hatred that the police do not need to add to this serious problem. This incident will only grow and spread across the country if the police do not control their behaviour. Google Kent State if you have any doubts about my words. The question of going to war or not is always a tough one to deal with. But as this situation expands, we do not want to revisit the protests of Vietnam. We do not need to be attacking each other here in America.

So if you see police violating the rights of citizens, take pictures or video and take this evidence to the media. If we shine a light on police brutality, it will stop. It will have to because they won’t be able to defend their actions. Remember this country belongs to all of us: We who are the citizens of America.

    I remember!!! Needless … No reason! Force never leads to a positive action.

  5. We must continue to remind ourselves, as a people and a nation what we stand for. This is a very poignant reminder.
