Ripples of Hope, Crossing Borders

“It is from numberless diverse acts of courage and belief that human history is shaped. Each time a [woman or] man stands up for an ideal, or acts to improve the lot of others, or strikes out against injustice, he sends forth a tiny ripple of hope, and crossing each other from a million different centers of energy and daring, those ripples build a current that can sweep down the mightiest walls of oppression and resistance.” ~ Robert F. Kennedy South Africa, 1966


Today under the banner of 100,000 Poets (and friends) for Change (100TPC) people the world over are gathered to stand up and stand together for PEACE, SUSTAINABILITY and SOCIAL JUSTICE.

Below is a sampling of the posters announcing these gatherings.They give you a small idea of how far-reaching this annual global event is and for which we have 100TPC cofounders Michael Rothenberg and Terri Carrion to thank.

Think on this when you are tempted to lose all hope for our species. Remember that – not just today, but everyday –  there are ripples and waves and tsunamis of faith and courage crossing borders in the form of poetry, stories, art, music, friendships and other acts of heroism. Hang tough. And do join The Bardo Group Beguines today at The BeZine blog to share your creative work and to enjoy the work of others. All are welcome no matter where in the world you live.

Love,
Jamie

  1. Thanks, Jamie, for sharing these words of hope and change. I am going through a period of despair over the lies and meanness that are coming out of Washington, and the number of people who choose to believe the lies or disregard them. This post was a little bit of light shining in my darkness.
