No Blame Gathering: We do not gather to point blame fingers. We gather to encourage more awareness and diligent resolution of the perception or actuality of problems in community, city, state, and nation. Remember those on the mountain may not hear the concerned talk in the valley and those in the valley may feel those on the mountain are not listening and do not care, and vice versa. It is up to those on the mountain and those in the valley to peacefully and compassionately reach down and up to one another in the human struggle to live a godly/morally loving dignified life. Be mindful mountains and valleys are relative and contextual. We do not claim one group consists of better persons than another; we seek righteous equity and justice for all. Let us all with godly/righteous humility grow in grace, understanding, and appreciation for one another regardless of role, race, ethnicity, gender, religion, political affiliation, education, and socio-economic status, etc. Let us all have the courage and conviction to carry out our societal role in a godly/righteous spirit of care, concern, and compassion regardless of the perceived or actual power or lack thereof we possess relative to one another.

All Truth Must Rise!
Pressing Forward and Upward with Love, Truth, and Unity!
Standing For Right and Against Wrong No Matter What Color or Gender It Is!
Let Us Not Be So Thinned Skinned!
Let Us Choose the Better Way Not Just a Way!
No Silence and No Violence But Action!
Let Us Not Be the Evil We Despise in Others!
