This administration doesn’t respect peace, and our dictators won’t leave in peace. I really don’t want to sell peaceful protests as the only means to achieve the goal, because some may be believe they don’t have a right to protect themselves.
I believe in peace and self-defense. I believe in us all moving together forward and leaving those behind not interested in sharing. I believe everyone should move and act in accordance to ones gifts and talents. Some people are natural leaders and warriors. Others are great communicators and negotiators. There is room under the tent for all, but they must be willing to come in and work. Follow some, lead others. This is a complex moment and I don’t want to overwhelm those new to our struggle. Baby steps, baby bites, and when they grow bigger, stronger, steadier, then they’ll be ready for what you’re describing.
