Rise


Before you get to the links below, please hear me out.
I am an avid believer in human rights and conservation. I personally believe that 1 voice, 1 person, 1 mind can make a difference in the world, even if it is a small community or college campus. You must be active in order to make a difference, learn the ropes and do what you can to change your area, not to let it change you and bring you down.

It appauls me to see child soldiers in Africa, South America and the Orient. To see this, and ofr the world to turn its back on it, to see children being forced to fight wars that aren't theirs, all because somebody thinks they know whats better. Why do we sit down and let this happen? Why do we turn our backs on these children? We care more about taking care of ourselves first rather than giving our time, energy and money to helping those who need it. So please, find an event and get plugged in, tlak to neighbors, friends, or family, and what is right.

The town of Burnia, Congo, where child soldiers are all over, that recieves an average of 100 rape victims each month. Most deaths occur amongst the children who suffer from mal nutrition, disease and dysentery.

Ben Afleck, the actor and director, is a major activist for the people of the Congo, making trips over there to try to help relieve some of the problems going on. He has met with leaders, talking and trying to possibly bring peace amongst the country, whose size is that of the US west of the Missippi River. He has visited hospitals and villages, talking with the locals, who are farmers, teachers, and in every way the same as us. They hold positions and wish to have the same as us, clean water and food, good living areas, schools, medical care, and whatever we take for granted, what they do not have, even as a luxury.

Then there is the recognized work of Bono, the lead singer of the Irish band U2. He has raised money in concerts for Africa, taken many trips to help those who are impoverished, and has done everything possible to help these people. He has worked with the World Bank to try to get debts brought down, and relief efforts from the UN. His fame has brought light on a grim part of our world communtiy and I thank him every day for it.

There is so much to describe, so much to talk about that I will have to work on this ove time, but please, head these words, write your congres person to take action, don't stand idle as problems persist. Take action, if you don't know how to or know where to start, like said, write your congress person start a group to help these people out, there is a place for everyone to be, somewhere. Thank you, and Be With God.

Rise up against the system, against the norm, and fight for what is right. The norm says its right and it may have the right idea but it wont fight anymore. It wont fight against tyranny, it wont fight against the submission and abuse of the chinese people. It wont go against the sue of child soldiers around the world, the system does a little but never enough. It does not wish to loose its reputation when it is only destroying itself and destroying the people it has sworn to protect.

I beleive God is calling us to more, calling us to do more in life.

We must rise up and say we will be heard!! We must rise up and do more to bring peace to a warring world. To a world that is unjust, to a world that supresses the different, the impovrished, that does not simply listen nor wish to know.

I have been confused as some strange guy, as some wierd guy who is ignored because I get misunderstood. Well this is who I am becoming, who I was trained me for this, trianed me for the fight ahead. You can either join me, or go off to the sidelines and watch, because this war is not for the weak of heart, for those unwilling to commit. It says in the Bible that we must love eachother so much that we must be willing to give up our own lives for that person.

I say again, rise up, be heard!! You do count, your vote does make a difference!! So go out, make a difference in someones life!! Whether you sponsor a child, serve in the peace corps, or whatever it is that you might do, do it!! Ghandi, Martin Luther King Jr., and Mother Theresa all had it right, serve, and act through non violence, and you will change the world!!!!

This link above is for those who don't have the funds to bring a child home, but do have some to give to sponsor a child. I sponsor one in Peru, her name is Jennifer and it only costs me $40 a month to sponsor her. If you don't want to go through compassion but through someone else, please, do so, you don't have to use these sites that I give, but these are just some sites for those of you who are thinking about these things.

I say again, rise up, be heard!! You do count, your vote does make a difference!! So go out, make a difference in someones life!! Whether you sponsor a child, serve in the peace corps, or whatever it is that you might do, do it!! Ghandi, Martin Luther King Jr., and Mother Theresa all had it right, serve, and act through non violence, and you will change the world!!!!
