Violence in the music is reflective of the Society’s Corruption

Violence in the music is reflective of the Society’s Corruption

Reggae Lane, the first roadway in the world, named after reggae music​, right here in Toronto, Canada, at Eglinton and Oakwood, respecting a time of reggae culture in Little Jamaica

~ ~ ~

Reggae is a global spiritual movement

For most of its lovers, which include so many sub-genres, the messages of love, truth and equality are the foundation blocks for generations of fans

There are parts of the music, especially within the dancehall, that expresses high levels of aggression and violence, which clearly reflects the mood and sentiment of the people and does shed a dark shadow on reggae culture, yet as I stated earlier, it is a REFLECTION of the society

Since the 6th August, 1962, it is my opinion that the Jamaican leadership / government / parliament / prime ministers / politicians have deliberately brought violence to bear on Jamaican citizens

This started with the orchestrated violence on Corral Garden, by the first prime minister, Bustamante, murdering innocent RasTafari in order to go into the camp and raid them of very large sums of money from ganja sales, which RasTafari could not put into Jamaican banks

Bustamante invented this raid to steal RasTafari money and kill innocent Jamaicans

Bustamante is no Jamaican hero to me {one cannot be a Jamaican hero if one murders Jamaicans in my opinion}

The list of offenses by the Jamaican governments are too numerous to mention

Now this current leader is talking about the violence in the music as being the issue behind the violence

Sad

This mascot leader is from a long line of mascots

How is bauxite mining more valuable in Cockpit Country that fresh drinking water?

Why isn’t reggae music monetized to improve the economy of the county now for sixty {60} years?

Why does the leadership act like wardens of a penal colony?

Blessings Baby Cham for speaking up

One artist speaking changes nothing though

I implore humans who love peace, who love Jamaica, the global Jamaican diaspora to ask these questions and many more, from these mascot governments that have been placed in charge of a beautiful culture

Foundation Steppas, a young reggae band outta Guelph, Ontario, bringing a conscious vibe and energy, following the path of their elders, blazing this new track, “Pendulum” on the formats listed above

Lillian Allen, a foundation artist in the Canadian reggae fraternity, a dub poet extraordinaire, is as lyrically potent today as then

​We have the pleasure of one of her poems which we display with her permission:

Revolution from de Beat 
Revolution from de drum
Revolution from de beat
Revolution from de heart
Revolution with de feet

De riddim and the heave and the sway of the beat
de rumblings and the tumblings down
to the dreams to the beat. To the impulse to be free
to the life that spring up in the heat          in the heat
in the pounding dance to be free
to bust open a window
crash upon a door
strip the crust of confinement
step truth, through cracks
through the routing rhythms of the musical tracts       tracks 

De sound of reggae music came on a wave of patter       patter
of deeply rooted internal chatter          chatter
on wings of riddim and melodies gone free
the bass strum the heart
the bass drum the heart beat
and the Rastaman pound! Bong bong     bong bong
beat them drums mon! Bong bong    bong bong

And de sound all around
and the voice
of impulse crafted into life burning darkness
of light
of days journeying through the night

of riddim pulse wails and dreams
and determination to be free
of sight
of a vision that ignites
of a musical bam-bam fling-down-baps get-up-stand-up jam!
A musical realignment of the planets
a joy and a singing for those on it

Liberation impulse
dig the colonialists’ grave
crunch of the sixties
baton carried through civil rights flames
spirit of the hippies
signify new ways
the Black power five
the right-on jive
women raise banners for their rights
communities organize
and workers struggle for human rights       for human rights

De core of the African self
separated by four hundred years
ties blighted and nipped a    continental divide
and colonialist lies
a sip from the being of the African well
uncorked the primal African self
and woo…oosh woo…oo…oosh the well spring up
and a riddim let loose
and reggae music found us

It was the pulse in the Caribbean that echoed bright
a voice on a beat
squashed determination released
and the wondrous sighs of Black people once again rose high
from a little piece of rock called Jamaica
where Arawak and Carib bones lie
came a breath of resistance
of peace love and liberation
spread worldwide on the wings of its artists and shaman
the bass and drums prance like a winded fire
chenke ckenke chenke chenke of a guitar strum
songs of freedom
of spirit 
of love
of redemption

Revolution from de drum
Revolution from de beat
Revolution from de heart
Revolution with de feet
Ah revolution

Newsletter ~ March 2021

There has always been a vibrant reggae vibe in Toronto and Canada, hidden from the masses by the very society we currently reside within yet it is and always has been a source of pride for many including this story teller

Telling “ourstory” has always been a path for CRW and though we cover a very small part of the culture, we hope you fulljoy the offerings in this communication

There are many other stories to tell so we drop a newsletter on the current runnings to keep the massive informed of the talents that inspire the culture

Jason Wilson & Carl Harvey

Both these brothers served the Canadian reggae scene for decades now.  Accolades far too much to mention yet it is totally recommended that as a fanbase, some of you get to know them

Jason complied a book of “reggae history” going back to Jamaica and coming to Canada called, “King Alpha’s Song in a Strange Land ~ The Roots and Routes of Canadian Reggae” among releasing several albums over the years

Carl Harvey is notorious for his ties with MessenJah, Crack of Dawn bands as well as famously on tour with the late, great Toots Hibbert for forty {40} plus years

Reggae Music decides the fate of Reggae Lane

Reggae Music decides the fate of Reggae Lane

Perception

It is ingrained in many to expect my work, network or my attention for zero cost

I can blame no one but myself for this behavior

It seems to be a prevalent thing globally

From Jamaica to North America to Europe, the genre makes probably trillions in revenue and much of this continues to be filtered free of cost

Why?

Because everything else is free

Cyaa blame folks who believe this is the norm and come into the culture and treat us the way we allow everyone else to treat us

That is totally on me

I take full responsibility for how I allow other humans to treat me

Like the time I realized that my company was being ‘pimpted’ by the Eglinton Councillor’s office, when I asked why the folks on the Reggae Lane committee were not being paid for their work

I was told, “We have no budget”

I left that committee right quick

Now, before some of you jump up and cuss the government office, MANY of you try the same bullshit… daily

We are ALL in this together!

I get it

I agree

Budgets are limited yet if we start properly valuing our thing and paying each other, even sometimes, we grow as the value grows

Respect is due

~

I use this situation because I am fully aware that it will get attention and these are MY opinions based on feel

~

A Black History Month celebration / performance yet the government office pimping Black business

Again

Colonizer /’ gentrifyer’ behavior is pretty consistent

Government has money to do their events and paying themselves and try to use the artists on the show to guilt us to support the event

Typical game we have seen forever.  It isn’t new

Mi nah hunt dung nuh money

I ovastand my value

If you do not rate it for any reason, I respect that, but DO NOT CONTACT ME!

This government office wants me to post their event in MY network

I assume that they believe my network is valuable or they would not have sent I and Toronto Reggae the info a day before the event

If we weren’t valuable, why would one send the information?

Why would they not have used our services weeks ago to get it to the reggae community?  Why not show respect and pay us for our network/s?

Instead, we are faced with, “a quick share to your network” a day before the event

There are folks in “this” that I will never accept money from to promote your event/s because your energy is one that reggae and RasTafari do not vibe with

It is like oil and water

If you are paying the artists properly, for that I am happy and grateful

Do not come to I about freeness

Then come tell me fuckrey about “outreach” like you sending me a flotation devise to save me from drowning or scraps of food for the poor

I suspect this will be my last correspondence with this office but sometimes Dracula need some garlic

Gentrification works cause one side has all of the money

Keep your money

Reggae Lane is still a beacon for me

I will defend my reggae cause without support from ANYONE inside or outside the genre

Reggae decides what Reggae Lane will become

Neither you nor me

Not Metrolinx, the TTC nor government officials who are all partners in the gentrification of Eglinton West aka Little Jamaica

Reggae will decide

Reggae teaches me how to treat and value myself as well as my community

The message of RasTafari flows through this music and if one ovastands what that means you can approach us for business.  If you do not, pay someone else… please

Calling the spot “Reggae Lane” must also call the truth of this music

Reggae is the judge and jury

Watch de ride

House of Dreads ~ A Spirit of Resistance

House of Dreads ~ A Spirit of Resistance

“Resistance”

Woody King was my uncle

 “City Without Pity” were some famous words spoken by Woody King, which has been used millions of times in passing conversations since and I just recently learned what he meant.  The statement was made because there is an event in his life where the Spanish Town Police, beat him up and shaved his locks.   The most inhumane thing the colonizer taught us is self abuse and many eager to please massa will brutalize black skin more than their own master would

They shaved Woody’s locks while he was in their custody and later, he took the Jamaican Constabulary to court and won a settlement as well as a law stating that it would be unlawful to forcibly trim RasTafari in Jamaica from that day forward

Woody King was notorious for fearlessness and consciousness hence people seeking his council included Marley, Tosh, Bunny and Skill among them as well as others whom I meet in passing in my life

All fierce and wise in their movements

None were saints yet all inspired generations of youth not only in Jamaica but also globally

Woody King instilled a sense of honor and integrity to me as a youth, not only by word but also by his deeds for many in the community to see and to experience personally

Allan “Skill” Cole was a friend of Woody’s

For me, from about 1971, when I was eleven years old, Allan Skill Cole was already a football legend and considered, arguably, Jamaica’s greatest footballer

From my experience playing at Up Park Camp, a Santos training ground, from about 1972 – 1975 as I was registered U14 – U16 I had many opportunities to watch him play among many other of Jamaica’s best.  For me, I have never seen better in my time in Jamaica

I recently had the pleasure of having a short conversation with Allan about House of Dread

Allan said his was the “conscious era”

I had the distinct pleasure of speaking to Allan Skill Cole today

He has always been a source of pride for me as well as many within our era.  For many of us, he was clearly the best player we have ever seen as a Jamaican.  He was magical to watch as well as to play with.  I was just one of the youths around him and the big ballers.  I played with him for the first time at 13 – 14ish, when he was the leader of the Santos team.  As a likkle yout, sometime de big man dem won’t pass de ball to yu.  Allan was different.  He used me as he did every other player passing the ball to me on several occasions

“He treated me like every other baller”

Huge confidence boost for a likkle yout

Allan spoke highly and respectfully about Woody at his funeral, of Woody’s impact on himself as well as others from that I believe to be the most effective era forcing babylon to make change to the global establishment.  They looked and saw outwardly and recognized where their / our abusers are and held them spiritually accountable

One of the greatest things Allan was a part of in my mind, is House of Dreads team in the Jamaica Major League of Football

A team of ALL RasTafari players

I have no idea of their record {I heard a number of 100 victories to 3 losses, but don’t quote me on that} but beyond success on the field, a RasTafari team occurred within a “commonwealth’ / colonizer mentality

Allan and that team were so famous, that they sold out the stadium several times

We do need a team like that standing up in this current time and space

A spiritual upliftment of self

Those evolutionary spirits only, can wear this shirt

Dub love Lithuania ~ Reggae For Life

Dub love Lithuania ~ Reggae For Life

A love story

Reggae music is truly love

Not always to be explained with the use of language as spiritual dialect is difficult to, or next to impossible to speak in any physical language, yet the “feel” is everything

Reggae rounds the globe, no matter the language spoken

The Japanese people choose dancehall as their mode of expression.  One of the most disciplined cultures on the planet, the Bushido code, the samurai, the Japanese revere Jamaicans and the dancehall culture as high art

And it is

I came across this clip of sound system and dub culture in Lithuania

Lithuania

Reggae knows no borders

We humans create definitive lines with genre and culture yet reggae / dub has none of those hang ups we share as residents of any culture

Reggae is love

Dub is love

I listen to these brothers speak in this interview and you KNOW that they feel the right feel

Cultural difference is irrelevant

Sound system love

Sound system love is necessary to global culture yet the Jamaican governments have never seen fit to elevate or monetize it.  As a matter of fact, they deliberately try to quash it and eliminate it out of the vibrant JA culture

Nothing more dangerous than a black colonizer and the Jamaican governments since 1962 are FULL of black colonizers abusing the people of Jamaica

Even in the woods, in this video, babylon shows up

Yet these youths string up the sound, play, dance and celebrate even in the face of the harassment from Johnny law
Canada has sound systems too

It is a necessity to feel deep bass and to share that with other dancing fools as yourself / myself.  It is a most beautiful feeling

It is truly a labor of love

Reggae Rising Again Needs You

Reggae Rising Again Needs You

Picture

Old flyer… Just reminiscing

I am no politician

I have zero interest in that puppet show

It takes a special human to choose such a grimy job in my opinion

My grandmother was Iris King, once the mayor for Kingston, Jamaica and possibly the only mayor to serve two terms of office.  She was certainly someone I and many in my family looked up to.  She was a member of the People’s National Party, a friend and advisor to Michael Manley and P.J. Patterson; she still carries clout in certain spaces in my life

Gaga, as I and others hailed her as, was a special human

I must take a moment to also mention her rival at the time Ms. Rose Leon as many Jamaicans have deep love for both of these women, no matter which side of the fence you may be, cause a woman in politics in the 1950s is easily an unheard of proposition for those times where many women, globally barely worked or had positions of power

My maternal grandmother, Lena Melbourne was a pharmacist back in the late 30s to the 40s and for many years of her life.  My grandmothers were boss ladies

My grandfather John Melbourne was a great man and died tragically in an explosion, working for the Jamaica Public service.  He seemed to be a revered man

Herman King, my other grand pops was a Choice Pilot for Grace Kennedy, bringing ships into the warf area.  A respected man by all accounts

Herman and Iris produced four children, Barbara, Hermon, Donald and Bentley

Donald is my pops

Unfortunately for me, pops took off to England, sometime in the early sixities and mom, Patricia, had us two to contend with (my sister Donna as well)

For most of my life, I lived what I considered to be a fairly “normal’ existence and for the most part, a very happy childhood
Through the years, Hermon and Bentley would check in on Donna, mom and myself, looking out for their brother’s family.  I am well grateful to my uncles for this.  The King Boys were like the three musketeers of old, “all for one and one for all” vibe which Hermon especially kept up his end of the bargain.  He not only checked on us but was a great mentor to me as a youth

Woody was a special soul {that’s what folks close to him called him}

Grandmother King the mayor and Woody, her son, a big RasTaman

By all accounts, mother and son were very proud of each other

Woody King

The folks who knew him can tell you more of his exploits with RasTafari, reggae music as a promoter of sorts as well as the character of this man.  Suffice to say that I hold Woody King in the highest regard

To give you the story of his life would be telling a Robin Hood, honest, conscious man, well loved by all his crew but was also known a no nonsense person and fairly quick to box a bwoy where necessary

One story, which we spoke of, was his life in Spanish Town

He told me that he and his wife went to live there and over a period of time more and more folks gathered to listen to charismatic Woody as a confidant as they read bible, chanted and lived respectfully.  It is rumoured that man like Bob, Peter and Bunny came for reasoning sessions with Woody

One day while Woody was by himself, fourteen {14} babylon showed up, beat him up and trimmed his locks.  When he recounted the story a couple years ago to me, I remember him saying that “there were just too many for him”

In that moment I knew that he did not go easily

I had always been aware of his defiance to injustice

I know that he was considered a dangerous man because of his affinity to justice and truth as well as very strong connections to RasTafari

Woody took the Jamaican Constabulary Police to court, sued them and won the case making it illegal to trim RasTafari, in Jamaica, to this very day

King vs Regina, you can look it up

Woody was a bongo man

Yet he was also from privilege as a youth

I once asked him why he chose RasTafari and he said, “Because they needed a voice”

He knew that he could make impact and he did

Even at the cost of brutality to himself

Woody helped to bring the Folks Brothers music, “Oh Carolina” to the world

Woody was a reggae man

And possibly my greatest influencer

I was way too young to have known all that he was doing yet several years after moving to Canada, my life with reggae, mirrors his as it pertained for the love of Jamaican music

I am grateful that he and I reconnected by phone over the years till he passed recently

We realized that DNA is a real thing…lol

Reggae

An uncompromising, spiritual energy that flashes around the globe like a bolt of lightening

It is a genre of music that the babylonian has set its sights on to try and control, using the same tactics of brutality through the use of the corrupt politicians in all Jamaican governments and leadership

Before you jump up to defend the JA government, I will list a few things that tell you a truth

How are the artists in Jamaica living today who set the foundation for the music?

Are they making any money from the impact of their music globally?

Has the Jamaican government ever set up a pension program for ailing or broken men and women of reggae?

Why aren’t Jamaican artists given jobs at resorts to make a proper living?

Why are there no major concerts in Jamaica but nuff concerts all over Europe?

How many vinyl pressing plants are there currently on the island?  With the lucrative vinyl market making white children a ton of money, why doesn’t JA have a vinyl plant or two?

Why hasn’t the Jamaican government ever monetized the export of reggae to aid the economy (and I am not speaking of their use of Marley’s face for tourism selling}?  I mean the rich heritage of reggae and the hundreds of talented men and women doing it over the years till this very day, why isn’t it monetized?

Why are the colonizer government beating down the clash culture with soldier and police?

The list could go on for a few more pages but you catch my drift

The goal it seems is to kill the music at the root, with the use of colonizer governments with politicians eager to sell out Jamaican people and Jamaican culture

Their abusive is undeniable and decades long and clearly visible to the world and CONSISTENT over several decades now

Undeniable

Babsy Grange

I have never had the pleasure of meeting this lady yet she is the Cultural Minister in the Jamaica Labor Party (Her title much longer but yu get mi)

Ms. Grange lived in Canada for a bit and elevated the reggae community here.  Many mention her name

She booked events, created tours, advised artists, created a record label to sell reggae music.  She went back to Jamaica to do the same thing and take reggae to the world

She is consistently reggae

I trust her far more than I trust politicians because of her consistent work of elevating reggae music

She ought to be recognized and honored as a “reggae soldier” while she is still above ground and breathing

I believe she is the beacon of this time in which we live

The corrupt babylonian venom encircling the earth need reggae eradicated or controlled

This is not possible

Spiritual energy cannot be contained

Brutality and bigotry can be brought to the people but this only makes reggae stronger because reggae comes from the spirit of the ancestors brutalized by the colonial yolk.  The reactionary energy that oozes from oppression and abuse

“They” have made it clear

Only they can earn from reggae

We all want to eat food as well but nuh matta weh unnu do, reggae a go play.  We reggae soldiers will keep on keeping on even with the spiteful venom of the colonizer “sucking the blood of the sufferer”

Reggae For Life is my vibe

Canadian Reggae World is a website that I have maintained for close to twenty years as a conduit for reggae music.  We are not the most influential site yet here we still stand

All of the things that I used to rant about was a thought that when I became enlightened, I would spread the info, shine the light, folks could see the issue/s, change them and the world would be a better place

Yes naïve
I realize I am not writing to everybody

I also recognize “government” is perceived as bigger than me / us

Reggae is for life, so as we live and breathe, we must continue to seek the love, spirituality and sense of protection to those who cannot fight for themselves, which sometimes includes all of us

Yah man, reggae for life

Denise Jones Canadian Reggae Warrior R.I.P.

Denise Jones

Jones & Jones meant everything to me and many live reggae performers from Jamaica to Canada in the 80s – 90s

What an era shepherded by Allan and Denise

I worked down on Mowat Avenue back in the day when Jones & Jones had an office in the building.  It is where Denise and I created a relationship / bond of reggae love.  She loved and respected my passion and work ethic for IBADAN, the band that I managed at the time, and booked us on many of Jones & Jones events {folks thought that she managed IBADAN the amount of gigs we used to get…lol}

Jones & Jones and LIP {raspect always Lance Ingleton RIP} made reggae sweet back in the day

They motivated and encouraged us all and with the amount of gigs that were happening.  There were so many reggae acts to choose from to open up for international acts

As IBADAN was young at the time, I knew that we needed an international stage to showcase what we were about.  Denise booked us to open up for Tony Rebel at the El Mocambo

Our first international show!

We KILLED it!!!

The reviews in the Share and other community papers as well as on Community radio were so great, it truly launched the band to Toronto star status

Jones & Jones booked the band often and we opened for Culture twice, Gregory twice, Luciano and early days Jambana and a host of other events

Jones & Jones did this for many other performers within the culture as well

Booking IBADAN went on to give all of us belief that we could perform on the world stage/s and encouraged the first album “Do It” and other recordings since

Nothing like the band loading in for soundcheck at a gig and hearing Denise or Allan singing, “I need and I need and I need you” the lead track off the first album

Denise has left an indelible mark on this proud Canadian reggae culture

No one does not know or heard of Denise Jones

Rest in peace my reggae warrior queen

Your presence made reggae music culture a prideful thing here in Canada

Love you Denise Jones

CRW seeking Web Team

CRW seeking Web Team

I am eternally grateful for the path of interacting with humans that love reggae music

It is a lovely ride

No regrets

We ovastand a spiritual energy that cannot be contained that delivers the truths that are needed to be felt and heard

I feel like CRW works have aided in the upliftment of Canadian reggae vibez to a larger audience globally

Individual artists like Chester Miller, Blessed, Ammoye, Exco Levi and others promote themselves globally opening even more doors, making it easier for CRW as well as Toronto Reggae YYZ who work on reggae music every day, to showcase reggae vibez in a Canada

Everyday!

This is both an honor and a blessing for us, based on reggae love

How do we maintain daily reggae work?

We try things like merchandising.  Toronto Reggae t-shirts, RFL merch, live events, advertising and promotion, consulting as well as seminars to pay us for the works that we provide

With this much interaction our audiences continue to grow

Now that live has been eliminated by the current global circumstance, we will endeavor to be more interactive on our reggae websites

As we continue to create our own infrastructure as we must, CRW is seeking the right candidate/s to work with creating an opportunity to sell Canadian reggae music directly from the CRW site

An interactive music site for reggae as well as other black music in Canada

Honor – Respect – Integrity – Nobility

These are the standards we seek most in working with folks

RasTafari is the energy that guides my path and I seek those who live in and relate to that behavior in personal livity as well as doing business as such

Our goal obviously is to elevate sales opportunities for the genre as a whole by improving what the artists earn weekly, monthly or several years down the road

If you feel like you suit this situation and energy and want a conversation, please link up

​Remembrance Day 2020 Reflections

​Remembrance Day 2020 Reflections

No I cannot “celebrate” this the way they are and have been selling it to me
If these so called patriots are selling it, you know that it is the wrong energy.  The hatred and venom they brought and other “patriots” like that, confirm puppet behavior and maintain this continued violence to innocent human life
Blood sport
The ultimate blood sport
Bravery personified to “serve your country” and to risk your life for others.  Purple hearts abound as other innocent souls get murdered in order to earn them medals
What is it that “they” want me / us to remember about war?
In WW1, some 20 million children were murdered on the whim of decision makers and in WW2, another 80 million children were murdered
The people who send 100 million children to be murdered control the celebration of the passing of these children
Over 100 million children
Little boys as soldiers not even 18 years old yet.  Innocent women and children as well who were not soldiers but civilians in the wrong place and time
Nah
Keep your celebrations
If these people promoting Remembrance Day celebrations actually cared, we would see no hint of war for the duration of humanity, when we take into consideration the 100 million lives we took away; from whose decisions again?
Who decides to murder children to make a point?
To win some territory?
To plant a flag?
To secure poppy or oil fields?
To maintain the opium trade?
Control the world economy?
“To end communism”?
For religion?
To make the American dollar our trading currency as opposed to gold?
Let us murder and pillage and sacrifice the lives of innocent children, “taking orders”
Wow… a get out of jail free card because one has to follow orders
As we murder more innocent children on any side of the conflict
If these children’s lives meant anything, we would endeavor to never do this to other children
The people, the “patriots” who send our children to die are also the ones promoting this poppy day
I truly do not trust these evil humans or their track records since WW2 with the numbers of global conflicts since that time… Falkland, Afghanistan, Iraq, Iran, Vietnam etc, etc, etc…
I will remember the lost and murdered children / soldiers
I will mourn these children and try to stave off this cannibalistic murder brought by the “decision makers”
Remembrance Day should not only mourn loss but also a movement to hold these “decision makers” accountable for the lives of dead children / soldiers
Remember to look out for these abusive leaders
Fire all politicians that call for war
Remember to find the executive at Big Pharma, the Corporation or the Banker pulling these strings and hold them people accountable for the lives of children
Our children
I think we should ask a million vets their opinions before we engage into another “war”
We have the narrative that they fought for our freedom as we know it today
Ok
Well, I suggest that all presidents, prime ministers, politicians, the senate, ceos of pharma or other banking entities who vote to send our children to war, must immediately report to the frontlines next day with their wives, husbands and children of age, to be suited and booted
Right to the frontlines!
If they survive, they can get their jobs back
Everyone fights! No matter their age or health conditions since we are fighting for “our” freedom
Remember how controlled we are
Remember how insignificant our sons and daughters are to fiscal bottom line
Remember the numbers of injured and amputee veterans out in society still struggling today
Remember to question the decisions of rich people playing with poor people’s lives
Remember to ask questions
Remember to recognise the corporation/s that kills millions of humans in the name of “freedom” yet none of them or their children are on the battlefield risking life and limb
Remember to question why you accept this
Remember that you probably have no say in whatever happens with the trillions of trillions spent on “war”
I empathise with vets and their families for lost lives and limbs, physical and spiritual trauma, aka PTSD, so I remember to ask about this aspect of war
“Remember, No more war”
That is the mantra I hope to share going forward
There are so many thoughts and things to say yet I do hope that those who have suffered are not hurt or offended by these thoughts.  I am hoping to create dialogue, thoughts, shifts in spiritual energy to protect humans
