End of The World or A Time of Change?

2012. Maya prophecy

Here we are, December 21st 2012. Is it the end of the world or the beginning of something better? I don’t know if or when the world may end, but I do know that great change is needed, and I can’t help but to look forward with childlike expectation with hope that maybe finally, the time has come.

December 21st 2012 marks the end of the Macha & the beginning of Pacha. It is the end of selfishness and the beginning of brotherhood. It is the end of individualism and the beginning of  – Evo Morales

In the last few years we’ve experienced major catastrophes; tsunamis, earthquakes, hurricanes, superstorms. Our weather seem to be breaking records and making history.  Thousands are left homeless. Violence and illness are rampant as well. Much of the food that we eat is contaminated. Mental illnesses are left untreated. Suicide is at an all time high. Parents are burying their children.This is a time of great suffering for all of humankind. I choose to believe with every ounce of my heart that change is upon us.

Apocalypse – Greek for “lifting the veil” or “revelation” – is a disclosure of something hidden from the majority of mankind in an era dominated by falsehood and misconception. – Wikipedia

There are many theories about what may or may not happen on December 21 2012, I always choose to believe what makes my heart feel just right. When I hear that this is a time for change, a time for a new age, an age of enlightenment and peace among humans and the world itself, I can’t help but feel the same magic I felt as a child at Christmas. This is what I choose to believe; That as we enter 2013, we enter an age of unity. I choose to see the end of the Mayan calendar as a new beginning for mankind.

May your ‘Apocalypse’ be magical 🙂

The Morning God Wept

On December 14th, 2012 at 9:30 am, a heavily armed man dressed in black infiltrated Sandy Hook Elementary School and without a word opened fire.Teachers locked their doors. Children were ordered to hide in corners, closets, and cupboards. A quick-thinking library clerk locked and barricaded 18 children in a storage room giving them crayons and paper to occupy their minds. A kindergarten teacher covered the windows and locked the doors to her classroom, and an effort to keep her students calm, she read them a story. The principal, the school psychologist and four teachers lost their lives trying to protect those of their young students.

Despite their best efforts, twenty 6 and 7 year old children lost their lives. The 400 that survived, aged 5-10 years old, are scarred with the memory of a nightmare and left brokenhearted  to mourn their siblings, cousins, and friends.

Although the shooting lasted only a few minutes, it’s effect will last a lifetime.

Children were led hand in hand, eyes closed, as they made their way through the aftermath of terror.

Frantic parents met the children at a nearby Firehall. The pain of looking for their child or children in the middle of such a tragedy would surely have been unimaginable. As would have been the grief of the parents who were forced to identify their children from photographs taken at the scene.

Obama echoed the voice of every parent when he said “we will hug our children a little tighter”. Unfortunately for some, this simple act could not be carried out that night.

On December 14th 2012, flags flew at half-staff and candlelight vigils were held nationwide. Newtown’s St. Rose of Lima Roman Catholic Church was filled to capacity with mourners and people trying to make sense of a gross injustice, people searching to grab hold of an ounce of hope in the midst of complete devastation.

On December 14th 2012, the nation wept as 20 little angels were sent back home into the arms God.

RIP Sandy Hook Elementary Victims, children and school staff

May God heal the hearts of the little one’s who survived and hold in his heart the families of those who did not.
