Never doubt that a small group of thoughtful, committed citizens can change the world. Indeed, it´s the only thing that ever has.

Margaret Mead


 

DECIDE TO NETWORK

Decide to network

Use every letter you write

Every conversation you have

Every meeting you attend

To express your fundamental beliefs and dreams

Affirm to others the vision of the world you want

Network through thought

Network through action

Network through love

Network through the spirit

You are the center of a network

You are the center of the world

You are a free, immensely powerful source

of life and goodness

Affirm it. Spread it. Radiate it

Think day and night about it

And you will see a miracle happen:

the greatness of your own life.

In a world of big powers, media, and monopolies

But of four and a half billion individuals

Networking is the new freedom

the new democracy

a new form of happiness.


Robert Muller


Robert Muller, Assistant Secretary General of the United Nations and author of "Most of All", "They Taught Me Happiness" and "The New Genesis", wrote this poem as an endorsement of Networking: The First Report and Directory by Jessica Lipnack and Jeffrey Stamps.


Death
is Not Always Dying

by Susan Giesen

Why are you so afraid?

It´s all this war talk. My sons will all be draft age very soon. I can´t bear the thought of them ...

Of them what? Are you afraid of them being shot?

No.

Are you afraid of them being disabled, losing an arm, a leg, being blinded?

It´s not that. I could live with that and so could they.

It must be death that you fear so much. The thought of losing them.

No, it´s much worse than that.

What could be worse than that?

I´ve seen soldiers come home. It´s the look in their eyes. My sons have never had that look, and I don´t ever want to see it in their eyes.

What look?

Emptiness. Like their souls have been raped, and their spirits smothered. They are walking tombs.

You see too many movies, and read to much.

If I had never seen a movie or read one book, I would still know that this is true. My heart tells me that my children can die for another, but they cannot kill without becoming their own enemy. There are more ways than one to be dead.

From the antalogy Women Against Military Madness and Women Poets of the Twin Cities, 1994 (US $10). WAMM, 310 E. 38th St., Suite 225, Minneapolis, Minnesota, USA.


"How to keep laughing..."

A Strong Woman...

"Rose can teach you..."


When will it appear, the sunrise of that day

when humanity will turn itself to light of Truth,

when the appeal of those who are helping

is finally heard and their words are enacted?

But come what may! I intend to strive

as though the time were already here!

Zarathustra, 600 B.C.


There will be no Peace if there is no Justice
There will be no Justice if there is no Equity
There will be no Equity if there is no Progress
There will be no Progress if there is no Democracy
There will be no Democracy if there is no respect for the Identity and Dignity of the Peoples and Cultures
Rigoberta Menchu (Nobel Peace Prize Winner)
