Take a look at a newspaper or magazine article from the year you were born. The more things change…the more they stay the SAME. Try it and you’ll see…

My DOB 11/19/64;In 1964, civil rights activist Malcolm X declared, “We want equality by any means necessary” during the Founding Rally of the Organization of Afro-American Unity in New York.

See what I mean. It doesn’t mean times aren’t trying and or REAL dangers don’t exist. We do however, need to get off the merry-go-round and quit the ride for what it is. Marcus says it best…

“To bear in mind constantly that all of this has happened before. And will happen again—the same plot from beginning to end, the identical staging. Produce them in your mind, as you know them from experience or from history: the court of Hadrian, of Antoninus. The courts of Philip, Alexander, Croesus. All just the same. Only the people different.” — Marcus Aurelius, Meditations, 10.27
