An Interview with Ram Dass, as found on Mavericks of the Mind, and saved to be savoured. It's hitting a spot within me this morning, so perhaps it'll resonate with you.

Here's the link to the entire interview, but my intention is simply to quote a small portion.

 Rosa Parks!

24/25 Rosa!

Rosa Parks
you, woman of simple strength
sitting when sitting was a crime
standing up for what you believe,
when what you believed was ignored
changing history in a single decision
inspiring a country with a one-track mind
freedom claimed
when freedom was denied
and here you've gone and died

i won't forget
i won't forget to remind others
i won't forget to do as you did and did again and again
the fight became your fight
the abstractions became facts

i won't forget
dear Rosa Parks

Rosa Parks died Monday, October 24th at the age of 92. Thank you for living your life, dear lady.

The General Assembly, in resolution 55/282 of 7 September 2001, decided that, beginning in 2002, the International Day of Peace should be observed on 21 September each year. The Assembly declared that the Day be observed as a day of global ceasefire and non-violence, an invitation to all nations and people to honour a cessation of hostilities during the Day.

It invited all Member States, organizations of the United Nations system, regional and nongovernmental organizations and individuals to commemorate the Day in an appropriate manner, including through education and public awareness, and to cooperate with the United Nations in establishing a global ceasefire.


Here it is in black and white, people. September 21st sounds like it could be a great day. (Or did somebody already say that 3 years ago?)
