The Pact

Written by

Enough already.  We can and must do better.  I have to believe that we are good, that humanity is by and large good; at our very core, we care.  With that said, I truly cannot understand why the few among us do such awful things to others and why the media feels duty bound to report it.  We could go down that path, find the problem and rectify it, but is not what The Pact is about. 

Recently, in my spiritual home there was a tragic accident that resulted with the transition of an amazing young man.  This is not an isolated incident.  It happens too much not only along the Front Range of Colorado, but all over our nation.  It has to stop.  Whether it is a tragic accident or a remarkable young person taking his or her life, this has to stop and stop right now. Knowing we are eternal beings, in death we shedding our bodies and continue to exist may ease the pain for the loved ones left behind, but  at same time we have it in our power individually and collectively to Stop The Madness.  We are all here for a purpose, each and every one of us.

The Pact is an agreement that was made among some fifty or so young people recently.  What they agreed to was, when they see another human being either depressed, withdrawn, being picked on or just having a weak moment, they will go to them.  They (we) will go to them as individuals and as a community to let them know they are not alone in whatever they are struggling with.  We will no longer passively sit by shooting video, snapchatting, laughing, contributing or piling on.  They will go to them and help them, stay with them, help them find the support they need.  The Madness Stops now, here and now.

All life is sacred.  Everyone is deserving of a helping hand or hug when they feel their backs are up against the wall.  It is the Golden Rule:  “Do unto others as you would have others do unto you.” It matters not whether you are Black, Yellow, Brown, Red or White; it matters not your sexuality; it matters not your religion; it matters not if you are wealthy or poor; it matters not if you have a disability of any kind.  Every life is sacred and deserving of spiritual support when they are down.  It is the Golden Rule. and it is The Pact.

I have high hopes for our youth.  By and large, generally speaking, when they look a human being, they do not judge or separate them by any “ism” or prejudice.  This is their gift to us and the world, which is why it boggles my mind why some can be so mean-spirited.  A message to you mean folks, you are in the minority. The majority will stand against you in Love, Gentleness, Appreciation and Gratitude.  Mean does not defeat Mean, only Love does.

This Pact you make is sacred.  Never again will anyone we know suffer in silence.  If you are suffering, know that you are not alone and please have the courage to reach out.  Nobody need be alone.  Reach out, we are here.  We got your back!
