A 100% Chance Of Change: The Choice Is Ours
At the outset of this hub I include the following disclosure:
- Commenting & Censure-ship: Being the author of a hub entitled "Complimentary Comments: A Hubbers View of Commenting" makes it a bit awkward for me to censure comments. (Which I have rarely, if ever, had to do here on Hubpages) However, due to the potential volatility of the subject matter here, I am disclosing that I will censure any comment that uses profanity, is divisive or in my view lacks constructive criticism, in any way endorses hatred of another human being or chastises another for expressing themselves appropriately. If you cannot comply with this, don't read any further or don't leave the comment as it will be deleted without publication!
- Generally Apolitical. Though there is a political theme used here, this hub is primarily about the need for understanding. It is about the opportunity to reform, individually and systemically.
- This hub is also meant to inspire us to constructive, non-violent action.
- If, after reading this hub, you are inspired to leave a comment or suggestion to improve our nation, our process or ourselves, please do so. I am looking forward to hearing from you!

Where Do We Go From Here?
I just finished reading the hub "Congratulations Mr-President" by KTbanks, and reading some of the comments and responses inspired me to voice my opinion here. What I hope to convey here is my perception of the ever increasing cultural divide brought to life during our recent presidential election and more disconcertingly...daily life and the interactions among our people.
As you can see in the video above a major concern of our actions is what those actions, on and off the screen, are teaching our future generations, "If this is what you want, this is how you obtain it." "He who has an ear, let him hear."
Who is right and who is wrong is of little consequence compared to how we work out our differences, because our differences will continue. It's part of the nature of life to have two sides of an issue known as Yin and Yang. The question is, how do we deal with it? My suggestions are noted in the hubs I have written during this past year and I offer them as food for thought. I also recognize that they are just the humble opinion of one man, therefore limited in scope. I do however hope that my readers will consider them, weigh them and passionately research and implement their own findings in a peaceful, constructive way.
We Always Have Options
I have said this in many other hubs and I continue to say it because I believe in the statements validity: We may not have created our circumstances but we always have options; we always have choices and we always have sufficient power to exercise them. I remember feeling despondent at times in my life because I felt like I was stuck in a particular situation. As I have come to the realization that I can change how I feel about my circumstances, I can also change what I think and what I believe. That's important, because what I believe is what I will act upon and what and how I act upon determines my life and legacy. Napoleon Hill once said, "Whatever the mind of man can conceive and believe, it can achieve."
There is also in this hub a short video of Mr. Hill describing his formula for success. I strongly urge you to watch it and consider it's value in determining your life and consequently the lives and future of us all!
Peace be with you always!
Is Change Possible? You decide for yourself!
