We are no longer a loose collection of flags because we are now one world of
interdependent countries, communities and people. We can no longer abide by
the living conditions set by the lowest of bars in the most exploited of
corners of the globe. We must now rise all people up to the standards we all
expect for ourselves. We are one people and we will not abide having our
lives and our futures and our children's futures being dictated by those who
would destroy our lands, our air, our food, our water and our only home in
the name of profit.
This is our world to claim in the name of our children and our children's
children and in the name of generations to come. We are one and we are
legion. We are the 99% that have served as foot-stools and step-chairs for
the 1% who have siphoned the blood of our sweat to serve as wine with feasts
of bloated luxuries. We are their brothers and sisters whose callouses have
hewn rows upon layers of civilizations celebrating our bonds to each other
as humyn beings and we demand our right to live in dignity amongst them.
We are here together by the grace of that which cannot be known and we are
equal to each other in ways which this world cannot measure. We are bound to
each other in this place in ways which we must respect and support or we are
no more than animals foraging for survival. We are one and we are legion and
we will be shackled to systems and societies we have created with our hands
and minds and hearts to live as a people together no more. We will live as
one in this world together to rise to our potential as divine caregivers to
each other and to our place in this world and in this universe.
We are one and we are legion and we are all together, 100% or we are not
humyns at all worthy of the bounties we have been given.
