If We Are To Win This World

If they were sleeping next to you, if you needed to wake them, would you touch their arm, stroke their hair, whisper to them softly?  Would you smile and wait for them to stir?  Would you let them know that they are safe?  If they were sleeping next to you, in this country, would you keep the watch?  Would you keep them safe?  And though they slept, would you love them regardless?  Would you love them as only the fully awake can love?  Because they have fallen.  And it is time.  It is time to rise.  It is time to touch their arm, to stroke their hair, to whisper and make them stir.  It is time to rise together, to keep the watch, keep us all safe, and be fully awake as one people.  If we are to win this world, it is time to rise in hope, wisdom, truth, fearlessness, dignity, respect, compassion, and most importantly love.
