“Did you hear what they said?“
“The Revolution will not be televised” http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=rGaRtqrlGy8&feature=related
The revolution will come about when your awareness level awakens to those activities happening around you and you will act on them but don't expect them to come because of a television news. Read, Explore, Write, Network, and talk to individuals who are NOT in your comfort zone. We can always learn from one another. . .
May Gil Scott-Heron, now rest in peace . . .as we carry the torch onward . . .
