    Bring Peace to Your Mind...

    I was just inspired by the picture @lobster, there always seem to be so many people who are willing to do the work of warmongers, and I feel those soldiers need a little encouragement to think about what they are doing.

    Besides the "insightful", "awesome" and "lol", a "wtf" would come in handy sometimes.

    Just sayin

    Those would all make great placards. I feel @federicas might incite violence ... o:) Perhaps our more militant and fearless protestors could go behind police lines ... perhaps with tea making equipment.

    Here are some ideas:

    Neverminding is something I can do well. But in this case I may see where you're coming from with this thread and I think we all feel the burn.

    Sometimes I wish a bell would go off that can wake us all up at the same time.

    I'll carry that sign.

  • A placard with inbuilt bells, or inbuilt shrine, or an electronic version so you could change positions/sides seems a possibility ...

    • Change your Mind
    • Just another Slogan
    • I am Protesting

    Those of us involved in real injustice, will always find it ... always ...
    For example how many have seen 'Suffragette' movie?
    What action in such opression?
    When does compassion, wisdom, awakening become socially active/engaged Buddhism?

    PROTEST IN MARCH

  • DavidDavid some guy The Hammer in Ontario, Canada, eh Veteran

    "What are you rebelling against?"

    "What do you got?"

    That might be from "Rebel Without a Cause" with James Dean but not sure.

    No, it was 'The Wild one' with Marlon Brando.
    But I'll let it go.

    I guess by the time I understand what the rally is about, I'll probably look like this...

  • Dear Friends,

    It is Better Buddhist practice to be for something rather than against someone.
