Hippies on Parade

I’ve gotten on a mailing list for a group called “Chalk 4 Peace”.  I normally just delete them, but I was bored and decided to read it through.  Mind you, I’m not a world-class writer, but I can turn a phrase, compose a fairly well-written letter and communicate fairly effectively with the written word.

This is a different story.  What I find here is a cliche-laced screed that really doesn’t say anything meaningful.  I suppose that passes for communcation these days, but if I was an actual subscriber to their “news”, I would have a hard time deciphering what we were about.  Here’s the email, see what you think. (emphasis mine.  Also, no editing, correction or formatting on my part.  This is just like it came in)

Mission Possible - “Our World Working For ALL of Us”

We CAN Make THE Difference!

THE WEEK OF SEPTEMBER 15th to 23rd Chalk4Peace!

You are invited to Take Action! - ("Scroll down for WHAT CAN YOU DO?")
To Participate in this GLOBAL outpouring of public art. Where we makeour personal statements for peace on the pavements and sidewalks of our cities all over our world.

Chalk4Peace IS HAPPENING! [Not sure what is happening, but something! -Mr. C.]

All around the globe, together we are decorating, dedicating and
declaring, in deep sincerity our collective call for peace.

Chalk4Peace is about our empowerment. We The People, our global culture, all people everywhere and our common desire to live in peace.

The Chalk4Peace project has already transformed the experience of thousands of people attending dem onstrations for peace all over the world during the past 4 years. Chalk4Peace is both a tool and a conduit for non violent public self expression,
and participation in the growing global movement for peace.

Chalk4Peace is an opportunity for all of us of all ages to make our feelings known, especially the young, whose future is in dire jeopardy as our global village falls faster and faster into the fear breeding fear breeding fear spiral. [Lots of inter-breeding in this group! -Mr. C.]

Our global culture is teetering on the edge of extinction.

No 1 person alone can turn this around, but together WE CAN! [By DRAWING on PUBLIC SIDEWALKS!!!!  -Mr. C.]

“The Structure of world peace cannot be the work of one man, one party,or one nation. It must be a peace which rests on the cooperative effort of the whole world”
... Eleanor Roosevelt

Our basic human instincts drive us to seek safety. This is what this chaos is all about.Our essential human survival instincts are acting out of context with the wider global cultural need resulting in mistrust, fear and conflict.

Everywhere the media bombards us with WAR TALK, distractions and negative belief patterns that encourage us to believe that the future of our world is out of our hands entirely.

One place we still have communal access to, is OUR STREETS.

We can balance our GLOBAL CONVERSATION with collective self-expression using OUR STREETS AS OUR MEDIA[It’s all about ME, ME, ME!!!!  -Mr. C.]

Chalk4Peace is one step, a catalyst that can transform our global
conversation as “we the people”, en masse make our statement that is our common aspiration for PEACE.

START NOW! Just DO IT!

Carry some chalk with you, invite a friend with you, to chalk
inspirations on the pavement whenever and wherever you fancy.

Chalk is harmless, cheap and washes away within a few days.

Especially PARTICIPATE in the Sept 15th to 23rd
GLOBAL Chalk4Peace ACTION!

Make it happen in your Community!

(Scroll down for “WHAT CAN YOU DO?")

Lets us turn our grey streets into a living river of colour and
possibility - With poetry, hearts, peace symbols, empowering statements, also expressions of our frustrations and despair.

All will be seen for several days by thousands of people, then as they are washed away by the elements WE CAN CONTINUE to find fresh places to Chalk4Peace.

We don’t need to be an artist to Chalk4Peace. Every statement, however small or large becomes part of the amazing tapestry that is our global future.

This unique event conceivably, could be the largest of its kind in
modern history. It is a global effort that is happening.

We The People are spreading the word and making the effort to be a part of this huge creative endeavour to bring Peace back into the equation.

It is our goal for at least one million or more of us to participate
with this sidewalk/pavement chalk extravaganza, at thousands of locations, in as many countries, cities and towns around the world as is possible.

So WHAT CAN YOU DO to help make this happen?

“Saying Yes2Peace”

“If we don’t create our future, our past will create it for us”

Lets skip the war bit and just get to the peace

Greet someone new today,

“There is nothing wrong with our world,
we are just having a weird conversation”.

“Reclaim the conversation”

“Our New World Order IS Love!”

Dedicated to the child inside each one of us,
All the children and
All the children to come.

Just point at the hippies and laugh.  They’re sweet in a sad sort of way.  Wishing for what cannot come and hoping in the dust of dreams.......

Not that very many people ever read this far down, but this blog was the creation of Allan Kelly and his friend Vilmar. Vilmar moved on to his own blog some time ago, and Allan ran this place alone until his sudden and unexpected death partway through 2006. We all miss him. A lot. Even though he is gone this site will always still be more than a little bit his. We who are left to carry on the BMEWS tradition owe him a great debt of gratitude, and we hope to be able to pay that back by following his last advice to us all:
  1. Keep a firm grasp of Right and Wrong
  2. Stay involved with government on every level and don't let those bastards get away with a thing
  3. Use every legal means to defend yourself in the event of real internal trouble, and, most importantly:
  4. Keep talking to each other, whether here or elsewhere

Oh, and here's some kind of visitor flag counter thingy. Hey, all the cool blogs have one, so I should too. The Visitors Online thingy up at the top doesn't count anything, but it looks neat. It had better, since I paid actual money for it.
