We are now faced with the fact

that tomorrow is today.
We are confronted with

the fierce urgency of now.

In this unfolding conundrum
of life and history,
there “is” such a thing
as being too late.

This is no time for apathy or complacency.

This is a time for vigorous and positive action.

NON-VIOLENCE.

Keeping empathy suppressed and denied, when an innate action of  humane courage is imperative, is a decision to be silence itself
–  to be complicit.
All of us have been blessed with someone’s humane actions of kindness, when our worlds seemed to have shattered, that fortified our hope, our faith, our courage, our body and mind.
Practicing humanity begins with you and me.
The measure of our character is our capacity to see/reality, empathize/compassion and do the right thing/step UP moral courage.
Recall the times when your world was fragile, and someone’s actions of “SEEING” you and, in turn, they stepped UP and fulfilled your need
– a testament of radiant RADICAL HOPE.

Communities across America
are being forced/demanded

CALLED
to take

WARM ACTIONS.

Our HUMANITY to SEE the invisible as VISIBLE
and
PROTECT OUR CHILDREN
from being murdered by assault guns is NOW.
Are we NOW a nation of  PTSD survivors of GUN VIOLENCE?
GUN VIOLENCE is a fact in OUR schools, churches and theaters.

X

“Thoughts and Prayers”  of our nation’s elected – alleged – leaders  
are code words of : “I am recipient of NRA monies.”

X

X

X

The children of OUR nation are RISING!
The “fierce urgency of NOW” is THEIRS.
Our NATION must RISE and NOT be complicit.
Our ACTIONS tell the TRUTH of America’s REAL values.
Weaponizing/ARMING/stockpiling our schools with guns  – NO WAY!
NO CHILDREN HUNTING.
FEAR cancels OUT learning/teaching/creativity.
PLEASE watch Emma Gonzalez, student/survivor of the Stoneman Douglas High School massacre.

Oh c’mon  NRA’s Dana Loesch: “These people are CRAZY people…”
 The 18 y/o was armed with an ASSAULT weapon
– hunters do NOT use assault and semi-automatic weapons or bump stock their guns!

Stoneman Douglas High School students are NOW revolutionaries of the NOW.

#NEVER AGAIN

that tomorrow is today.

Our NATION,
OUR AMERICA,

NEEDS

WARM/MORAL COURAGE ACTIONS!

Enough CHILLING HORRIFIC hypocrisy of elected officials.
“THOUGHTS/PRAYERS” + NRA $$$$ = ?
Thoughts +  prayers will NOT reverse trauma.
GOD did NOT do this and nor did plant life.

THIS IS A CHILLING “MADE IN AMERICA” CREATION.

MOBILIZE WARM ACTIONS.

STOP GUN VIOLENCE KILLINGS.

SILENCE
America, land of the free?
Images of real life tell us the truth.
Have our minds become numb,
mouths paralyzed, avoiding confrontation?
We were put on this Earth
not to hate each other but to love.
understanding fear of those who suffer.
We must not let silence be our sin.
– Kari Irene Musil
Twin Cities based jazz musician/composer and writer
