Speaking Up and Speaking Out:

There is a great spiritual hunger in the world for the kind of meaning that makes people believe that life is worth something far more valuable than bottom line entries on myriad corporate spreadsheets. Who better to figure out what that is but those of us with enough time on our hands and enough life experience so that we can’t be fooled with platitudes, clichés and doublespeak? 

Once we get past the foibles that keep us focused on the things that do not really matter in life and refocus on what does matter, the whole world begins to take on an aura of wonder. It’s time to turn the heat up on our politicians and our media who choose the topics for public attention. For those of us who, because of economic necessity during our “earning” years, have lived on borrowed opinion, it’s time to pay it back. It’s time for those of us who’ve always expressed strong opinions about subjects that we’ve never really investigated to actually do the research or keep quiet, or better yet, look it up and speak up. If inspiration and some kind of mindful accomplishment for posterity do not precede our death, we must ask ourselves why, then, did we live?

Sept-U participants on all sides of the political divide have the opportunity to change the world by insisting that media spotlights shine on issues that really need attention.

Here are names, addresses, e-mail, and phone numbers of individuals and organizations to contact about the subjects that really matter. Let them know what you think.
