Wednesday Wake-Up Call

Wednesday Wake-Up Call 23.05.12

For What It's Worth: Change

Today, more than ever, humankind stands at a crossroads. A crossroads of moving into the future as an advancing and healthy species, or one that will follow along the path of it's predecessors, which is into eventual oblivion.

There are many movements that are attempting to address the various problems of our people and planet these days. So, today's Wednesday Wake-Up Call, gives you the opportunity in being creative, and in depicting how positive 'change' may be accomplished for ourselves, others, and the planet. This is an opportunity for YOU to share your perspective on how we can make a difference to others.

So, grab your pens, pastels, paints, video camera, crayons, et cetera, or sing a song, share a painting, an essay, or simply an opinion, and join with us as we journey into For What it's Worth: Change.

To get you started, here are two interesting videos to stimulate your thought and creativity on this week's subject! For What It's Worth and Why I protest, Occupy Atlanta.

"What a field day for the heat
A thousand people in the street
Singing songs and carrying signs
Mostly say, hooray for our side
It's time we stop, hey, what's that sound
Everbody look what's going down..."
lyrics, Buffalo Springfield

"If we do not begin to work together for the mutual benefit of all people and the
planet, then we as a species will follow the path of our predecessors, into oblivion." Baut

  3. Ok, it is out there. But, be warned, it is probably not what you were expecting...I will not be offended if you decide not to read.
