What is killing folks in Darfur? A thought. Our thought, we in the US. I don’t share this to make us feel bad. I share this to help awaken us that WE CAN RESCUE AND RESTORE THESE FOLKS.
The proof? Who can doubt that if Citizens and Digitaries filled President’s Park, FILLED IT, on Hunger Strike in solidarity with Darfur, Standing WITH Darfur, that the UN troops would be on the ground FAST? IF you need to multiply this times 10 major cities, I’m ok with that. Fill a park with hunger strikers in 10 major cities if you need to.
The point is, WE THE PEOPLE CAN STOP THIS IF WE WANT TO. IF IT DOES NOT STOP, IT IS BECAUSE WE DON’T WANT TO.
The thought that kills? THAT WE CAN’T STOP THIS GENOCIDE; that it is up to the government, the UN, China, Russia, France. NO. We in the US, WE THE PEOPLE, have enough power. What is stopping us? The thought that we can’t. That it is up to someone else.
