Black Lives Matter protests (2014)
A Ferguson Divided Cannot Stand.
As the author of the German language "Weed Out Hate" book, I discovered that the solution to solving the problems in Ferguson as well as Gaza, lies the revealing the deepest Abrahamic Biblical roots common to all three religions. 50 years after Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr., delivered his "I Have A Dream Speech", there are still all too many weed seeds of hatred clogging up our individual and collective spiritual roots. With heightened tensions, two hours of church services a week, even the kind that Rev Al Sharpton delivered, are simply not enough. By inspiring children to garden with a spiritual intention of weeding out hate, every time a weed is pulled, the spiritual experience and soul cleansing can be greatly expanded. Over the past few days, I discussed the concept with Alderman Antonio French, Dick Gregory, and even Martin Luther King, III. Moreover, I have spent the past week relating this concept to the demonstrators on the street.
Hands up, don't shoot is the wrong message at the wrong time. It only incites the weed seeds to germinate more. Weeding Out Hate is a method for uniting all peoples, so that the spiritual root connections become free....spirits rise together and begin to occupy that same dream that drove Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. to greatness
