Struggle Cultivates Quality

It occurred to me that in this time of misogyny, racism, religious dogma, and exploitation of children, there still exists strong forces to mobilize, unite, and just be present. These strong forces seek to reinstate balance. 1) Women do have the mental, moral, and physical ability to operate businesses and head offices. First Shirley Chisolm ran for the US Presidency in the 70s and in 2008, Hillary Rodham-Clinton and Barack H. Obama vied for the same seat. Now she is the US Secretary of State and of course, Barack Obama lives in the White House. Surely, Sojouner Truth, a 19th century black woman who emancipated herself, would see the light streaming through today's slats of apparent domination. 2) The Internet allows people across the globe to communicate with one another. People upload self-produced video to present their point of view. 3) Pacifica Broadcasting System still exists in the US and is accessed through the Internet. We struggle to maintain the life-affirming and honest use of the media. 4) The traditional ways of revering the ancestors and honoring the land are practiced around the globe in the face of pressures to adhere to the major religions. In fact, regardless of religion or philosophy more people work for a cleaner environment. 5) Though dark, highly-melaninated people are villainized, our talents rise to the top. We don't accept the subordination. In a crowd seeking to fit in, there are a few questioning and striving people. 6) PBS News Hour proves people will watch and listen to older news announcers and news analysts. Wrinkles add character. 7) Websites such as SignOn.org, Change.org, One.org, and MoveOn.org are the means to get average people politically active by explaining the issue and then giving the names and telephone numbers of politicians, prepared petitions and letters for signing and the means to give donations that are as little as $3.00. These 2,012 years have been a challenge. People have been killed in wars; women have been slaughtered; children have been exploited; however the struggle to balance the situation continues. The human spirit remains alive. The struggle continues because quality and character are honed from adversity. Imagine 2,012 years and still we rise. Keep resisting.
