Tired of moving stones?
Wow, who knew anything as exciting as the Berlin wall coming down, Nelsen Mandela being freed could happen again? I was crying and crying this morning. People got the power!
I'm at a cafe with the silver mafia right now...it seems to be very difficult for older generations to understand how people got the power. So much cynicism...even in the face of todays celebration in Egypt. Some people say poor Israel, poor us we don't know who we will have to deal with as leader of Egypt now. What happens if another dictator enters government in Egypt?
It doesn't matter. Forever we have seen that we can have a voice.
These same negative people believe that Ronald Reagan took down the Berlin wall. No. Rock and roll and word of mouth took down the Berlin wall.
Last night Charlie Rose said a couple of rerally amazing things. He said "The top world is slow and dumb and the bottom world is smart and chaotic"
Wow, isn't that the truth and the generations and people in power who are at the top have not seen that its not the same world they grew up in. Its not fantasy it really is different. The generations who are on the internet and the people in the "bottom world" already know its different. It all sucks. Enough is enough.
Charlie Rose also said " Theres something more important than security"
And the kids in Egypt have sacrificed the concept of "security" in order to speak out. Maybe their houses and stores are being pillaged...maybe a new leader will be worse than Mubarak...but it doesn't matter because letting go of the brainwashing about "security" and taking a risk for fgreedom and to have a voice is worth it.
This willingness to take a risk in order to speak out against oppression is something the "top world" just doesn't get.
Three cheers for the "bottom world"
Now be inspired and go do something amazing in your own life! Get out there sports fans! If you cant do it for your self...do it for those brave kids in Egypt!
Tired of moving stones? Walk away.
