Overcoming the Giant Triplets of Racism, Extreme Materialism, and Militarism

ENDING POVERTY & HOMELESSNESS!

Decent Food, Clothing, Housing, Education, Health Care, Employment, etc. should be recognized as Human Rights for ALL !

trump-in-mumbai        

     We need a more just society where the gap between rich and poor is narrowed, not widened. Mumbai, India pictured above, is increasingly becoming everywhere U.S.A. with Honolulu now ranking #1 in homeless major cities. Homeless people and those living on the edge of becoming homeless are increasing throughout Hawaii.. Housing is being priced out of the reach of more and more people.

     Dr. Martin Luther King said, “Our only hope… lies in our ability to recapture the revolutionary spirit, and go out into a sometimes hostile world declaring eternal hostility to poverty, racism, and militarism.” 

     There always seems to be enough money for war and new weapons systems. The US is the greatest seller of weapons in the world and the most heavily armed nation the world has ever known.

     As we begin the new year of 2017 let’s change priorities. Let’s rededicate our lives toward building our communities and world on a foundation of justice, peace, and nonviolence. In the process let us live aloha where “kindness is the language the blind can see and the deaf can hear.”

A Happy New Year for ALL! 

1. Mourn all victims of violence. 2. Reject war as a solution. 3. Defend civil liberties.
4. Oppose all discrimination, anti-Islamic, anti-Semitic, anti-Hawaiian, etc.
5. Seek peace through peaceful means and work for justice in Hawai`i and around the world.

2017 New Year’s Resolution

Tuesday, December 27th, 2016

Prevent the Killing of Planet Earth

Through Nuclear War & Climate Disaster

mushroom-cloud-hydrogen

     If 1% of the nuclear weapons now ready for war were detonated in large cities, they would utterly devastate the environment, climate, ecosystems and inhabitants of Earth. A war fought with thousands of strategic nuclear weapons would leave the Earth uninhabitable.”

     Following a large nuclear war, enormous fires created by nuclear explosions in cities cause 150 million tons of smoke to be lofted high above cloud level, into the stratosphere. The smoke quickly spreads around the world and forms a dense smoke layer which will remain in the stratosphere for many years and act to block sunlight from reaching the surface of the Earth.”

http://www.nucleardarkness.org/index2.php

      “There are other pathways to planetary destruction (than nuclear war). The principal one, global warming, requires more time than a nuclear exchange for the consequences to be realized, but in the end, the planet would definitely become a disaster zone.

      President-elect Donald Trump is ignorant of many things. Most of all he is ignorant of his own ignorance – a situation that often accompanies a grandiose estimation of oneself. One of the subjects on which Trump’s ignorance stands out is environmental protection – the rubric under which comes the effort to save the planet from global warming. This warming process is a scientific fact and the subject of the 2015 Paris Agreement on climate change.” Lawrence Davidson is professor of history at West Chester University in West Chester, PA. See http://www.counterpunch.org/2016/12/23/how-to-destroy-a-planet/

Make it you New Year’s Resolution to do everything in your power to prevent climate disaster and nuclear war. Stand in nonviolent solidarity with people struggling for justice and protecting the Sacred in every way possible. Never give up. The stakes couldn’t be higher.

Stand with Aloha for Peace, Justice, and the Earth!

True Peace Requires Liberty & Justice for All

Tuesday, December 20th, 2016

Celebrate a True Merry Christmas!

Peace With Justice!

magnificat

Text in the image is from the “Magnificat” of  Mary,            Luke 1:46-55

Today, that means “Cast down and send away” the Billionaires, the Generals, the Arms Makers, the Wall St. Bankers, the Climate Change Deniers, etc. !

     “The (Magnificat) song of Mary is the oldest Advent hymn. It is the most passionate, most vehement, one might say, most revolutionary Advent hymn ever sung. It is not the gentle, sweet, dreamy Mary that we so often see portrayed in pictures, but the passionate, powerful, proud, enthusiastic Mary, who speaks here. None of the sweet, sugary, or childish tones that we find so often in our Christmas hymns, but a hard, strong, uncompromising song of bringing down rulers from their thrones and humbling the lords of this world…”

German theologian, Dietrich Bonhoeffer, who was executed by Hitler

The Times Today Demand Prophetic Action for Justice, Peace & the Earth!

  1. Mourn all victims of violence. 2. Reject war as a solution. 3. Defend civil liberties.
    4. Oppose all discrimination, anti-Islamic, anti-Semitic, anti-Hawaiian, etc.
    5. Seek peace through peaceful means and work for justice in Hawai`i and around the world.
