I am responsible. Each of you is responsible. Not just Adam Lanza, but we as a people are responsible.
Those who war are responsible. Those who greed are responsible, for greed makes war. Those who ignore are responsible. We as a human race must take action and raise our collective consciousness up past the point where this act is impossible.
So far we have known better than to start nuclear war. If we know better on this issue, we can know better than to ever have a repeat of Newtown, CT. How many school shootings do we have to bear before we as a people get it?
It’s not a matter of putting more locks on the school doors; it’s a matter of raising consciousness.
But I start with myself. So what am I going to do about it? “It” — the most shocking act of my lifetime. What have I done to be a part of this? What can I do going forward to heal my grief, your grief, the grief of a nation – the shame of mankind?
I can live better, that’s what. I can speak up and not stand for this! We talk about gun control. Gun Control! We must abolish them altogether. As a race, forget they ever existed! Melt them down into plowshares. They have no purpose. Limit them to the “sport” of killing animals? Bah! Get another hobby.
But it’s so much more than just guns; it’s a great mistake of the human consciousness. If we can’t overcome these notions of killing each other then we as a human race deserve to be wiped out one day. And if that happens then we as a human race will have done it to ourselves.
Raise consciousness. I need to do whatever I can in my life, to do my part, to live more and more in the purity of thought. To enforce a higher consciousness wherever and whenever I can. To take a mighty stand, in whatever way possible, for the goodness and purity of thought. And I/we must start today, right now.
Not just pray for the grieving. That is not enough. We must raise the consciousness of the world – through prayer, through good deeds, through sacrifice, through our thinking.
For we are all responsible.
