Long before any child is born no matter what the anticipation of the parents are, always and mostly freedom and peace is their wish for a bright and better world for their child.
This bond is universal and remarkable until we reach the stage for the open world to realize there is a rule of engagement and law that protects us opposed to a society governing body.
This law sometimes brings counterproductive resolutions that needs adjustment to bring true justice and serve the society better but sometimes this needs to be challenged and a true peaceful way to correct legislation is needed.
It is a dark and unforgettable history for humanity seen throughout history with the roles of slavery and injustice of the 17th and 18th centuries. Let us not forget the two world wars and destruction and many catastrophic current events around the world.
In the face of all this adversity many citizens and open minded civil rights advocates speak up diligently and ask for the implementation of constructive policies to improve better governance to benefit growth and advancement to move countries forward.
We can say the reshaping of our society today is due to much of the hard work and sacrifice of the young generation of the 1950′s who engaged diligently and fervently from the 6 continents – Africa, America, Asia, Australia, Oceania, Europe – seeking for change, inclusion, belonging, freedom and peace. We must accept it’s not been an easy road; for a long time much came out with a heavy price and sacrifice but mostly those who dreamt, believed for equality, civil rights, justice and better government have seen many changes during the last 50 years. Of coarse we are all not there yet but the work continues. The flame of the dream will keep shining and burning from Alabama, Alexandria, Cape Town, Damascus, Moscow, Tibet to Nunavut. The great thing for universal humanity is we all need freedom and peace to work productively and advance. We all must engage in dialogue for true change in inequality, discrimination, corruption, that are mostly the corner stone of many damaging governances around the world.
Justice must remain in service and to serve and protect goodness for humanities morale and advancement.
“I Have a Dream” – a public speech delivered by Dr Martin Luther King, Jr. on August 28, 1963, in which he called for an end to racism and hope for change in the United States.
Delivered to over 250,000 civil rights supporters from the steps of the Lincoln Memorial during the March on Washington for jobs and freedom, the speech was a defining moment of the American Civil Rights Movement; but not only for America. This speech was the crossroad for universal rights, as the challenge anyone faced around the world are mostly underlined with the key principles of freedom, peace, equality and justice.
The lesson and education for a better world must ring in the ears for many citizens across the planet. There must be no place for injustice, simply this hasn’t benefited humanity.
Freedom, justice and peace must reign from every mountain top, valley, across the oceans and around the globe when every child is born and is a citizen even if it’s from the jungle town village in Abayeme, or great cities like New York, Paris ,Tokyo, Bajin, New Delhi, Rio, Vancouver to Zambia; they must enjoy great freedom with hope for a better world.
In all, this binds us together as humanity.
“Let us not accept violence as the way of peace. Let us instead begin by respecting true freedom: the resulting peace will be able to satisfy the world’s expectations, for it will be a peace built on justice, a peace founded on the incomparable dignity of the free human being.” – Pope John Paul II.
