Time for a Revolution
Peaceful revolutions take time. For thirty years, Mahatma Gandhi led hundreds of millions of Indians to freedom through nonviolent leadership. Every year for fifty years, leaders of the suffrage movement stood before Congress until American women were granted national voting rights. One hundred years after Lincoln’s Emancipation Proclamation, Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. led our nation to embrace our brothers and sisters through his passionate nonviolent resistance and ultimate passage of Civil Rights Acts.
How long does it take for a revolution?
The moment that the means becomes the end.
Friend and singer/songwriter Tina Meeks sings:
If ever I was called to lead the masses
What kind of revolution would I lead?
Before I’d change the world and take some action
I’d have to change the world inside of me.
Just like Martin, we have a dream.
Just like Gandhi, we want peace.
Like Mother Teresa, we want love.
God grant us the courage to rise above.*
I invite you to join me in becoming a Revolutionary Leader in your own life and as Gandhi said, “become the change you wish to see in the world.” The uprising has begun.
