Charles Gaby is one of my best soul friends. He’s written a new song called “The Declaration” that’s up on YouTube. I’d love for you to give it a listen. He’s also written a “pledge” I want you to know about.
Here’s the video:
As I mentioned, Charles has been a soul friend for a long time. He’s working with a group in Fort Worth called “Roots of Change” that’s worth checking outs
In honor of July 4th, Charles has written a “pledge” to our troops that you can sign that’s connected with the song’s themes.
In part, it reads:
Your sacrifices are necessary because of our failures at building relationships. We pledge to you our love and beg your forgiveness. We pledge to never again hide our guilt in sentimentality or wrap your sacrifices in a flag or religion to hide our own shame. We cannot ask forgiveness unless we change. So we pledge to you, to do all we can to make a stand. We will join others to learn how to transform our own lives and build bridges of understanding between the people of our communities and world. We pledge to wage peace so that one day we won’t have to depend on you to wage war.
Read the whole things here.
And consider signing.
