Inter Faith - Stop Think Cry Love
by Life Positive
. We need to start thinking and start talking. Talking to ourselves and to others. We need to start doing. This has to be a national youth movement. We have to make it the beginning of a revolution. Every historic movement starts like this, vague, uncertain and hesitant; but moving towards a common calling motivated by the same inspiration and dream. This is our chance.
Don't tell me that we won't be able to reach out to the people who need to hear what we have to say. These people live among us. There is no limit to what people can achieve when they set out to do something. You are talking about a country whose founding father won a war without raising a weapon, which has lived on stories of Subhash Chandra Bose calling out for blood and promising freedom.
Well, we have bled. Now it's time to get our freedom. Freedom from our own mindsets. Freedom from shackles we have placed on ourselves.These last two days (the Mumbai terror attacks) have been the worst attacks that India has ever dealt with. If this alarm wasn't loud enough, no alarm will ever wake us up.
We can go on talking about stepping up security, straightening out our coast guards and eradicating terrorism. But the problem lies not in our security system but in us. It lies in our madrassas, in our temples, in our schools, in our homes and in our minds. And until we realise our role, until we open our eyes to this truth, not a thing will change.
