Unless We Take Today! - Poem by Eric Cockrell

they are killing, beating, torturing,
and imprisoning our brothers and
sisters around the world who dare
to stand up, and speak out with
freedom's voice!
and it has already begun here with
the brutalities committed against the
Occupy movement...
and the recent passage of the 'detainee'
bill, which contrary to what our Republican
'friends' are trying to sell us, can and will
be used against American citizens...
this is a time for prayer, commitment, and
a firm resolve not to back down... they can
take anything they want, but they cannot
take our freedom as long as we are joined,
connected, and one in purpose....
the futures of our children depend on the
choices we make now! we can make this
a better world, but it's going to take hard
work, faith, listening, and understanding...
we cant wait for tomorrow... tomorrow wont
come unless we take today!
