On April 19th, 1775 local Minutemen engaged in a skirmish with British Soldiers. During this conflict, a single shot was fired; it was said, this shot was heard around the world.
The outcome of the American Revolution increased individual freedom to act; but this freedom took time to grow. The shot on April 19th, 1775 sparked a movement which increased individual freedom; over a period of time.
A second shot was fired on April 4th, 1968. The death of Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. sparked a different revolution related to thought. Where the American Civil Rights Movement was not born of this tragedy this event cemented ideas which increased equally opportunity for all.
Two shots sparked two revolutions. The outcome of each movement ignited individual opportunity to think and to act. A third shot occurred on April 20th, 1999. The events surrounding Columbine brings attention to a need for a third revolution; that of emotional freedom. Just like revolution overcame physical and intellectual ignorance, environments must change to overcome the effects of emotional ignorance.
The time has come to rally to a revolutionary standard; a banner which can free people from emotional bondage. Just like revolution increased opportunity for individual agency; and agency laid a foundation for increased intellect, revolution must increase individual opportunity associated to emotion.
The shot that must have a global echo is a spark which increases individual ability to feel. In this, historical events have shown a human progression from ignorance to intelligence. An increase in freedom to act, through democratic polices, and an increase in freedom to think, through wide spread access to education, has increased opportunity to address emotional barriers. The final barrier, that of widespread emotional ignorance, stands firmly in place.
On April 19th, 2020 we mark the 245th anniversary of the shot heard around the world. On this day, a cry of revolution sparked with a single voice. Like the shot heard around the world, this single voice has grown from one to two, and from two to four. With this growth, an increase over time, we mark the beginning of an emotional revolution; we unite to spark a fire of human potential; we ignite the dormant power which lies inside. From this day forward we build upon a foundation of historic efforts—events which increased overall ability to think and to act—to increase our ability to feel. In so doing, we declare our freedom from emotional tyranny. We invite you to join the revolution!
