YOUR LIFE A-Z:ZEALOUS
What are you ZEALOUS about? What makes you care? What gets your adrenalin going and get up off the couch to make a difference? I am a child of the sixties and everything mattered, the Vietnam War, racism, personal freedoms and those causes rocked the world as we knew it. Then I noticed that in the nineties when I was teaching that it seemed to me that no one cared. During our first war with Iraq, not one college protest made the news. During our second war of “Shock and Awe,” young people didn’t seem to notice that for the first time in our history, we invaded another country. But finally, a change seems to be brewing. Alicia Keys, the thirty-three year old singer is showing a ZEALOUS spirit with her knew song, “We Are Here” Her ZEALOUS spirit is raising a voice of compassion, connection and caring. Her ZEALOUS energy is taking political action and beginning a grass roots movement to make a difference. Let’s face it, Maya Angelou is gone and most of the activists from the sixties are dead. It is time for a new ZEALOUS energy to take over and bring America back and make it even greater than it ever has been. Moving the mountains of apathy and greed is going to take thousands of ZEALOTS with ZEALOUS energy that will not be stopped until change is accomplished at the very basic heart and soul of humanity in this country. Give yourself permission to be ZEALOUS today and join a cause, any cause, with all of your heart.
