Rise Up Mankind by Julia Dalton

And here's the worst part.  It's our fault.  We the people have allowed this to happen.  We've been living in a fools' paradise, in denial, keeping our noses stuck in our iPhones, iPads, iPods or whatever the latest electronic gadget is. We're pretending nothing is going on, secretly hoping someone will save us.

Well, guess what?  That ain't happening. No one's going to save us.  We must save ourselves.  Jefferson said, "If you do not fight for your freedoms they will be taken from you."  And guess what? They have and are.  Our constitution is being systematically dismantled, our money squandered on endless wars, Wall Street thieves and tax breaks for millionaires.  Call me crazy.  Call me Cassandra but it is up to us.  It is our choice.  Will we continue to collude with the dark forces of the elites and corporate power for our demise or will we realign with our higher selves and remember who we are?  

We must choose love over fear and we must awaken and rise up against the forces of darkness.  We must stand for the good of humankind and with mother earth.  We must stand in our truth and we must act.  Denial and dysfunction do not work.  We have given our power away and it's time to take it back.  We are here to make the world a better place for others.  This is our mission should we decide to accept it."- Ignore it at your own peril. 

End of sample.

 I hope you'll purchase the book and share widely.

Thanks so much.  Oh, the SOLD OUT sign on the cover refers to the U.S. not the book and it's listed under Jill Dalton not Julia.  

Another world is possible.
