March to Heal the Valley
CHAM Deliverance Ministry invites you to join us in planning and organizing a March to Heal the Valley this fall from one side of Silicon Valley to the other. We plan a pilgrimage of several days from the working class streets of East San Jose to the leafy corporate campuses of the North County. Our goal is to search along the way for the true soul of Silicon Valley.
CHAM Deliverance Ministry invites you to join us in planning and organizing a March to Heal the Valley this fall from the working class streets of East San Jose to the leafy corporate campuses of the North County. Our goal is to search along the way for the true soul of Silicon Valley. Silicon Valley has long been a world-class center for innovation. Silicon Valley has also come to symbolize the glaring polarization of wealth that is destroying America. We will crisscross the diverse neighborhoods and gather the unemployed, the people with little or no health care, the disenfranchised, the foreclosed, the underpaid, and al the wonderful people of conscience that live among us right here in our communities. Together we will march to the gates of the wealthiest corporations in the world to see who will join our campaign for a compassionate economy. Thinking creatively can mean more than designing technological advances. This does not create value. We create value when we build up love and dignity in our families and our communities. We create value when we bind p the wounds of our broken society, with housing, employment, health care, and well-rounded education for all. We are not looking for charity. We are looking to start a dialogue about what can be done to end this desperate poverty amid a valley that has so much to give. All we want is true justice, democracy, and freedom. True freedom is the opportunity to build a healthy, inclusive society where we can all lead joyful and meaningful lives.
I think this march is a GREAT idea. It's ACTION, everyone can participate, it SAYS something, it doesn't cost money to do (or comparatively little money), AND it's grass roots--no partisan promoters, political parties, or power brokers for the 1%.
I DON'T think we should pull any of the guilty, fat, rich, greedy bastards out of their Rolls and pillory them. Or hang them in the town square or in Effigy, a small town in the mountains.
We must love the sinners, even as we condemn their sins. We are not here to judge and punish, just point out and question. Why? Because that's what Gandhi and King said, and they achieve more human freedom than all the wars fought in their lifetimes.
