If you'll join my "oneness" Blueprint for Peace on Earth

The majority of humans (and animals too if they could tell us) on Earth seem to agree, all this violence and destruction of our planet BOTH have to stop.

It will take great bravery, the bravery to get rid of the divisiveness which causes bigotry, war and other evils.

I have  challenges for:
The Media
The Politicians
The average person

1. STOP labeling!

Media , if you are going to call the people, some of who only have some their ancestors come from Africa, "African Americans", then call all those who ancestors came from Europe, "European Americans", and those from South American, South Americans (gee that doesn't work does it? That says something about our proprietary use of the word "American" too!)

Do we, in the US, refer to Canadians as the "other" North Americans? Do you refer or those with ancestors in Asia "Asian Americans" when you speak or write of any of those in a news report, even if they are US citizens?. By singling out "African American" and others, like "Hispanic", you are allowing and fostering the idea that the default "American" is Caucasian. Those descriptions need only be used to describe when a description is necessary, as in a police report,  not to label, and there is a difference. And then every person who is mentioned should be referred to that way! Let's see if the cumbersomeness of  those sentences will make you realize what it is you are doing by labeling only some people!
"A crowd, 30 of European descent, 2 of Asian descent, 5 of African descent, 5 whose parents came from assorted Latin American countries and 8 who have mixed racial background, showed up for the opening of the new mall here in town."

 I have news for you, the ONLY default so-called "American" is what we call "Native" American! They are the only true Americans!

Continuing to label only SOME groups causes divisiveness! ONLY by your example can a difference in the way people think begin. A change in language changes culture! Be part of the cure not the cause!

2. Stop praying (or holding good thoughts) for a single group

I am quite sure that if God does exist, he, she or it (or they) is/are all loving, and appalled at what humans are doing to one another and the Earth! Differences in the way we worship cause more divisiveness than anything! Those who do believe in God vilify those who don't. I'd like to think a supreme being would find that petty and ridiculous!

Politicians, religious leaders, leaders of all kinds in the USA, every country, I implore you. Especially those in "America". Be brave, WE don't need God to just "bless America" (or Canada, or the Queen or whoever). What we need is for God, if it exists, to BLESS HUMANITY and the EARTH! Many of the places like America are already quite blessed! Other places need blessing much more!
But, in the end, to stop the violence, hatred and killing, we all need it, as ONE!

Stand up Queen of England, Stand up Pope Francis! Stand up Presidential candidates! Be brave enough to bless all the earth and its inhabitants and MEAN it! It may be the only way out of the religious, political divisiveness and the travesty of pollution of our mutual home!

Continuing to pray for only SOME groups causes divisiveness! ONLY by your example can a difference in the way people think begin. A change in language changes culture! Be part of the cure not the cause!

3. Humans are "herd" or "tribe" animals. This is an instinct in our DNA for protection.  We tend to think in terms of "us" and "them". Four women in a room of five people will become an "us". We feel good for some reason when we are driving out of state and see a car with license plate from "our" state! Lefties take note of other lefties...etc. You get the idea.

So I challenge you all! You've heard the phrase, "Act locally, think globally"? It is time to apply in in new ways. Let's think of humanity as our herd and be protective of ALL of it! End divisiveness!

I guarantee you that if Earth were attacked by a threat from outer space, suddenly all humankind would be out to save humanity, and that's ALL humanity! Because then everyone would see the "oneness" of it all!

4. Don't just talk about it, ACT!

Many of us post our grief and support online for everyone to see. What good does that do but to make one feel more a part of the group who grieves, and perhaps gives a little feeling of love to those directly effected by these tragedies, be they from terror or natural disasters. Except for the warped few who perpetrate these atrocities, all humans are one with the grieving group!

I challenge YOU to challenge your local media and leaders of all kinds to make "oneness" happen.

Feel free to post this, give others the link,  or pass it on to politicians, your local media etc. Let's create a "oneness" movement together!.

I wonder why we are not called USers?

I wonder, if the people from Great Britain are called "British" not "Britians", why are those of us from the United States of America called "Americans?

Aren't Americans anyone from the three areas of the Americas, North, Central and South America?

United Statesers or United Statesians are too unwieldy, but perhaps we could be USers? LOL

I wonder if anyone else hates the new Webshots, called "Smile"

I wonder if anyone else hates the new Webshots, called "Smile"?
I just posted this on the Webshots/Smile Facebook page: 
"Your new web site, Smile, is horrible! what you've done by not letting us import the captions and names of pictures, or more them in album form is a huge waster of people's time! I am livid!
I tried moving everything, it did and then it changed my desktop photo and when I tried, in my settings, to change it back to plain blue, it keeps changing it to a different motif.
Your service is too invasive. I HATE it and want my pictures off of it! I've downloaded them to my desktop and will NOT pay fro this service! I WANT out!
I belong to a group of over 1600 from all over the world and no one plans on using Smile.
I think you have miscalculated how many people will want EVERY photo from their phone, or Facebook to magically appear on your site.
I usually wish new businesses well. I hope yours fails miserably! I wish I could start a class action suit for the person/hours you have collectively wasted of former Webshots members, many of us who PAID for our membership, for the cost of the time it will take to redo all our albums, captions and titles!
And, when I tried to send you this message through your "help", it wouldn't even let me unless I read three of your answers to FAQ first! Are you kidding me? You really do not even want to hear any criticism, do you? Foolish of you, just like the entire concept of "Smile", which is just making everyone frown!"

Origins of "Latino"

I can't help but wonder why, since all the so-called "romance" languages are rooted in Latin, why people of Spanish descent are referred to as "Latinos" while those of French, and Italian (the "origin" people of Latin descent) aren't?

Chocolate Scam!

I wonder, does Hershey's REALLY not think we'll see through the sale of their new "Air Delight" chocolate bar,  as not being a scam? A chocolate bar full of air holes, to give us LESS chocolate for the same money????

BAD idea Hershey's!

Strong people

I wonder if most people realize that the difference between strong people and weak people is this:

When something bad happens to a weak person, they figuratively go into the bathroom and lie on the floor pounding their hands and feet and crying until someone hears and comes and helps them up.

When something bad happens to a "strong" person, they figuratively go into the bathroom and lie on the floor pounding their hands and feet and crying until they eventually pick themselves up.
