Protests around the world
I Have A Dream To Weed Out Hate and Sow The Seeds Of Peace!
Rev Al Sharpton stated that he hoped that Ferguson would be a turning point. Unfortunately, only a few hours later, violence erupted yet again.
Behind the scenes, Marc Daniels, Campaign Manager of the Weed Out Hate initiative was sowing his own seeds of peace. Throughout the day, he had been sharing the Weed Out Hate Concept with demonstrators and protesters in Ferguson.
The sign used in the photographs was actually an enlargement of his pending Weed Out Hate; Sow the Seeds of Peace Book: A Judaic Tribute to Martin Luther King, Jr.
What Daniels shared with the protesters is that the choice is ours. We can either continue to suffer under painful tear gas police controls, or we can choose to root out symbolic weeds of hatred, while shedding a potent eye for an eye spiritual tear in the Creator's direction. The former brings about a lot of pain, the latter unleashes an ocean of the Creator's cleansing tears back upon us.
When tragic events like Mike Browns death happens, tensions increase, and the weeds seeds of hatred germinate wildly According to Daniels, the church experience needs to be expanded widely into home and community gardens, so that every weed that is extracted is done with the heavenly intention of weeding out hate.
Multiply this effect by a few billion souls or soul, and humanity would finally attain inner justice leading to peace without end.
Daniels was able to establish first contact with Martin Luther King, Jr's son, Martin III. He told him of his dream, of a Judaic tribute to his Dad, one in which the President of the United States would stage of globally televised live-aid style event in which two billion kids would be called upon to root out a symbolic weed of hatred. As Daniels told Martin, if you believe in the power of prayer, this just might weed out hate and sow the seeds of peace throughout the world. .
