IN ORDER FOR POSITIVE CHANGE TO TAKE PLACE – GOOD PEOPLE MUST COME TOGETHER AND STAND UNITED AS ONE!-
It’s up to the people themselves to begin to build bridges for peace. Listen to the people with the positive message, not the ones speaking with the voice of fear. Sometimes we have to take a chance, and we may get hurt. But what is life worth – if we allow ourselves to be manipulated and controlled – in order for our misery to continue?
We are all free people. Born free, to be the people we are meant to be. It is a bigger plan than what we understand, but one that is good. Don’t allow your life to be side-tracked by hate. The future has to be built on peace and peaceful intent.
The 100th Monkey
A story about social change.
By Ken Keyes Jr.
The Japanese monkey, Macaca Fuscata, had been observed in the wild for a period of over 30years.
In 1952, on the island of Koshima, scientists were providing monkeys with sweet potatoes dropped in the sand.
The monkey liked the taste of the raw sweet potatoes, but they found the dirt unpleasant.
An 18-month-old female named Imo found she could solve the problem by washing the potatoes in a near by stream.
She taught this trick to her mother. Her playmates also learned
this new way and they taught their mothers too.
This cultural innovation was gradually picked up by various monkeys before the eyes of the scientists.
Between 1952 and 1958, all the young monkeys learned to wash the sandy sweet potatoes to make them more palatable.
Only the adults who imitated their children learned this
social improvement. Other adults kept eating the dirty sweet potatoes.
DO WE REALLY WANT TO KEEP EATING DIRTY SWEET POTATO WHEN WITH A LITTLE EFFORT WE CAN ENJOY IT CLEAN?
WE CAN CHANGE, AND FOR A FUTURE WITH PEACE WE MUST…
