Charlie Chaplin did a movie in 1942, a few years before WWII ended and in the middle of a war. The movie was called ‘The Great Dictator’ Now many people know this but the video below of his speech for democracy and peace was actually adlibbed. He forgot his lines and just spoke from the heart, he said what I am guessing many thought at the time. The video is his voice with modern images over it. I have shared this video 100 times now, I just shared it with someone on their blog and it made me do this blog. This video speaks a 72 year old language in a World long lost and forgotten. A world where men would take their own life if they could not fight for their country. I know it happened in the USA and the UK. That is an Alien World now. The values we held then have gone, social values have collapsed and we have turned into a hateful species, we do see individual acts of kindness but too often we see a world where hate and greed have taken over
It’s amazing how a 72 year old speech from 1942, made up on the spot can be so relevant in 2014
Ace News Group Wishes All Its Readers A Happy And Prosperous New Year
#AceNewsGroup wishes all its readers a ” Happy New Year and a Prosperous 2014″ and may your life be filled with goodness and mercy.
Reflections on a New Year that has not yet arrived, and one that began for me by “Caring” and ended with “Sharing” as l spoke to more people about their lives.
As l grew into a person with greater compassion and humility, than l ever believed possible, by understanding forgiveness, that comes from experiences, never from judgement.
That allowing myself to release feelings, sometimes good and sometimes bad, allows want to turn to need, and need to turn to forgiveness.
So let 2014 be a year of “Peace and Love and let us all “Care and Share” and let “Charity” be from the “Heart” not our Pocket.
Me talking for 8 minutes, links I mentioned in the Audio are below
More love, less hate
This may seem a very strange title ,but really it is the word No that is my watchword for this day! This simply means if in your heart you believe you are right, and when everyone, says No to you, do not give up. By accepting their words, you are not using the free-will that God gave us, and by accepting other people are right, when our heart tells us, they are not, we are giving up our right to our free-will, and thus the way we live our life!
The fact is peace is won not by war or violence, but by talking through a solution, to resolve our differences! It is not by agreeing someone is right because, they say so, as this means that they may not be, unless they can prove the reason why!
It is not enough just to say to someone, that they are not in control of their decision, as someone else pulls the strings! As they may have had their free-will curtailed by threat of redundancy, or losing their job! As long as you perform your duties to the best of your ability, either in your job or simply in life, then no-one can, or should be able to persuade you to follow them!
I never ask anyone to believe what l say, but to check out what l write,, and if you disagree say so in a constructive way! But do not say l am wrong, as l will not say you are wrong, but if no compromise can be reached, or a stalemate exists ,just agree to disagree, until the right time presents itself, to take up your shield of truth and the sword of justice and re-enter the fray! By then you will now have a clear mind and an aim, to prove that you can get justice for your cause!
So remember when we cannot make a difference at that time, wait until God is ready and together, you can walk together as all you were waiting for was his understanding to enter your life!
Just a month after my mother was left on her own for two days, phone call from would you believe it, the vulnerable adults team. Just advising a follow-up and the fact their is going to be a meeting behind closed doors, to make sure it does not happen again! Happen again, l retorted, what about who is respnsible this time, l asked? Oh yes she said but just to say we are going to do everything we can, to help resovle this matter! So you will need my help and l will want to be present at the meeting, so l will prepare a file and let you have the full details. Ok she said, so more soon after meeting! But my motto never take NO for an answer, ever!!
