I want to be part of a revolution based on Love. We suffer in power struggles, addiction, revenge, denial and abuse. Love is attractive but many people have not experienced it. I want to translate Love to its user-friendly elements. Love is not about perfect people but healthy interaction. Acceptance and honesty are the tools of love. Power and denial are the tools of abuse. Whether victims or perpetrators, I want you to regain personal value. Abuse is the absence of Love, healing restores Love. Resolution relieves more than Revenge. Power collectives come and go but Love endures. When we love those within our reach we are participating in a revolution.
