They are counting on us to not:

Wake up

Pay attention

Use our own judgment

Ask questions

Support and vote for a third party

Examine evidence with an open mind

Turn off the TV

Speak up

Stand together

Fight for our future

Will you let them have what they want?

Welcome to the Small Axe Society

leave a comment »

I am awakening to a new world, the same world I have lived in for my entire life but only now do I see it for what it really is.  I think I was sleeping as many others still are, oblivious and ignorant of all that is happening.  Now that I see the world for what it is I can honestly seek knowledge and truth.

I am a parent.  I am scared of how the world is unfolding as my daughter grows up.  I am scared of the world she may live in.  I want to do something to help change things for the better, to leave the world a better place for my daughter, her generation and those to follow.  Let us seek the truth, let us help each other in earnest, let us find common ground and respect each others’ cultures, let us evolve, let us grow, let us share, let us spread love, let us rise up against tyranny and oppression with peace and compassion, let us change the world one at a time for all time.

This song has long been an inspiration to me ever since I first heard it.  Recently the words have taken on new meaning to me and it has inspired me to write this journal and see where this road will lead.

“Why boasteth thyself
Oh, evil men
Playing smart
And not being clever?
I said, you’re working iniquity
To achieve vanity (if a-so a-so)
But the goodness of Jah, Jah
I-dureth for-I-ver

So if you are the big tree
We are the small axe
Ready to cut you down (well sharp)
To cut you down

These are the words
Of my master, keep on tellin’ me
No weak heart
Shall prosper
And whosoever diggeth a pit
Shall fall in it, fall in it
And whosoever diggeth a pit
Shall fall in it (… fall in it)
[ Lyrics from: http://www.lyricsfreak.com/b/bob+marley/small+axe_20021665.html ]
If you are the big tree, let me tell you that
We are the small axe, sharp and ready
Ready to cut you down (well sharp)
To cut you down

(To cut you down)

(To cut you down)

These are the words
Of my master, tellin’ me that
No weak heart
Shall prosper
And whosoever diggeth a pit
Shall fall in it, uh, bury in it
And whosoever diggeth a pit
Shall bury in it, uh (… bury in it)

If you are the big, big tree
We are the small axe
Ready to cut you down (well sharp)
To cut you down
If you are the big, big tree, let me tell you that
We are the small axe
Ready to cut you down (well sharp)
To cut you down
Sharpened …”
