When I look at the world right now, I see a no-mans land. A barren landscape with no living soul in the vicinity. When I start walking on the dried out soil, I see hurt families hiding in corners of broken houses. Animals seeking the last pieces of nature. When I walk on I pass by man-made dug out trenches, full of activity. Soldiers preparing themselves for the next strike, businessmen striking deals, politicians discussing over bureaucracy, all driven by a power invisible for my eyes, and that greedily searches for more natural resources to exploit.
The silence on the plain is tensed, with only the sound of the White Flag waving in the wind. But I am not the only one looking at the flag.
The world is in transformation. Whether you look at the climate, politics, racial or social issues. There is a belief that our system does not support anymore our ways of living. There is a change happening in which power is shifting. We don't always receive the right information on those shifts due to prejudiced media and corrupt science. We have to make up our own minds for ourselves.
Now the Sun is down and we are in the phase of the White Flag, we can only peek at what Dawn is bringing us. Where we create new kinds of communities with values of trust, love, vulnerability and brotherhood. But to reach that we have to break with the old and disconnect from the disguised social safety.
