This commentary feels true to me. Like no other grinding, ongoing atrocity, the current slaughter of GAZA’s innocents has blown awake the world.
This moment in history is a watershed moment for Humankind. It has been triggered by the senseless and premeditated extermination of innocent and largely defenseless children, women and men in the largest open-air concentration camp on earth called Gaza by an overwhelming force for only one purpose: making life itself unbearable.
The response to and condemnation of what I have no name for is universal. It transcends all political, ideological, religious, national, continental, gender and age boundaries. It is unique as it is not based on gaining any advantages or fighting for or against anything. It simply is the outpouring of everything that is good within human beings. It is the universal expression of what we really are. Sentient, loving, caring, compassionate creatures.
This outpouring is unique in its genuity. It shows that lies are not believed any longer, that no propaganda can distort our innate knowledge of right and wrong. No event in history could accomplish what the unmasked menace, now staring Humankind in the face, could. Not the bombing of Hiroshima and Nagasaki, not the fire bombings of Tokyo, Dresden and Hamburg, not the atrocities of WW I and II, not the catastrophes of Chernobyl, Fukushima or Deepwater Horizon.
What we are witnessing is the rise of the true human consciousness and universal spirit in all its glory. Truth, justice and compassion will prevail.
