How to affect change
I was listening to a YouTube and a Podcast where a particular celebrity was being maligned. It occurred to me, with all the more important issues in our community, why not expend positive energy with issues rather than individuals?;
1. Deliberate Poverty
2. Targeted abuses
4. Community And Economic Development
5. Improving Black Image in Media
6. Black victimhood for political advantage
8. Improving relations
There are a few celebrities who I completely abhorred regarding their public persona. Fortunately overtime they changed that paradigm and lived up to the potential I knew was within them.
I won’t name names but one has totally transform like a butterfly, the other is still in a cocoon stage.
Like us, celebrities are made of flesh and bone and I’ve learned I can’t allow their behavior to overly concern me. As parents and guardians we should not allow the next generation access if we do not agree with specific behaviors from celebrities or anyone for that matter. There is something quick and easy called turning off the radio and television. I have more control when I am mindful to use my power. I would like to exhort others to do the same rather than maligning another person’s character – deserving or not. We all have the power to change, just like the chrysalis transforms to a beautiful butterfly, people can change, but we shouldn’t further malign them just because we can, because social media gives us the power to do so. Be mindful, think ahead and put yourself in the other persons shoe. Be the change you wish to see in the world.
