Message from a Recyclable Bag

This particular bag is from a couple of years ago. Only today I saw the message…..

A bit late to the party perhaps but better late than never!

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

But then again, take those same words and skew them a around bit and you would get this:

“The best way to destroy a friend is to make him your enemy”

Which is what those who have the clout and the audacity to do so are clamouring for all around us.  Just check out the MSM (mainstream media) for one. Then there are others who proclaim one thing but mean another.  Again, a quick scan of the local media can show up all those who peddle those kind of ideas.

Incidentally, yesterday (3/6/11) was exactly one month after World Press Freedom Day, which as almost always the case in Bolehland, came and went without any fanfare.  The Center for Independent Journalism though begs to differ and has urged us, the “have-nots”, to reclaim the media.

Coming back to the message from the recyclable plastic bag – we have two choices. Either we let ourselves be dragged down into the mud with the fellows who are hell bent on making us all enemies of one another OR we decide to to transcend these petty thinking types, say NO to their rotten agendas and keep trying to forge another path for this land of ours, one where justice and peace prevails.

Maybe Paul Simon and Art Garfunkel’s old tale of “the voice of the prophets being written on subway walls and tenement halls” still carry a message, even today, part of which goes like this:

“And in the naked light I saw Ten thousand people, maybe more. People talking without speaking, People hearing without listening, People writing songs that voices never share And no one dared Disturb the sound of silence. “Fools” said I, “You do not know Silence like a cancer grows. Hear my words that I might teach you, Take my arms that I might reach you.” But my words like silent raindrops fell, And echoed In the wells of silence.”
Isn’t  it about time we go disturb these walls of silence?
