The 'revolution' that no fewer than two (2) generations of East Side, inner-core, i.e. "inner-city", East Buffalo Neighborhood Individuals have been hoping, wishing, dreaming, praying, sojourning, laboring, volunteering/working, and (even) battling 'for', is upon us, it is here. It is happening, and right now. Finally! It is not 'on the way', nor is it 'coming soon'. It is already occurring, as in very quite literally: now. Therefore, now is not the time to fail to put any and all manner of recklessness, foolishness, laziness (or whatever it is preferred to be labeled, these days), away. We must needs thoroughly quench each and every propensity inclined toward cultivation of strife, disunity, confusion, bitterness, wrong resentment, envy, dysfunction, disunity and/or chaos. What we've done has always mattered, but, it especially does, in this hour, and moving forward. It's time "we" step up, level-up, and get busy. Let us not hope to 'sleep through this "great revolution'". For, as one of this nation's most revered Human and Civil Rights Champions pronounced, some 60-odd years ago, and in his (unequivocal) manner:
".....the great question facing us today, is whether we will remain awake through this worldshaking revolution, and achieve the new mental attitudes which the situations and conditions demand. There would be nothing more tragic during this period, than to allow our mental and moral attitudes to sleep, while this tremendous social change takes place. May I suggest a few of the changed responses that we must make in order to remain awake during this great revolution.....An understanding of man's present predicament may be found in the distinction between civilization, and culture. Civilization refers to the things we use; culture, to what we are.....In this new age that is emerging, we will be forced to compete with people of all races and nationalities.....We must broaden our interest to include fields we have not pursued in the past. We must produce more scientists and engineers.....".
