History in the making. The CHICAGO SPRING is coming…

Can you feel history arising? The question is whether or not it will arise as a storm. It feels unstoppable, shocking and fearsome all at once. Regardless of what form it will take, now is the time to watch as history unfolds for what will be a memorable Chicago spring that historians will talk about for generations. Now, knowing that you are living an awakening moment, now you have the choice to be a participant or witness. Both share the responsibility of rendering the moment accurately for future generations. The witness must see all and render those impressions justly, without propagandizing the moment as inaccurate or skewed to the political flavor of the day. The participant must know their own hert and enter into these days with clarity and peace, while carrying the burden of all that will come from moments such as this, like Martin Luther King upon a Memphis balcony, Gandhi at the end or Jesus on the Cross. Both must know that their witness will be judged by history, far away from the politics and emotion, and clarity or blindness of the moment. Regardless, this history is unstoppable. Will it come as a lion or a lamb? Either way, the Chicaho Spring is coming…
