The same holds true for the way we see things in the world and the way we do things in the world. Things won't change until we shatter the heavy chains of personal and group patterns, beliefs and habits that bind us to the past.
The peace sign pointing down to me is a sign that chains us to how we saw and related to peace in the past. We have learned, grown and evolved so much since the 1960's (when the peace sign became famous). We have to change that sign to show that we are raising the standards of peace. Peace is rising... raise it UP... TURN IT UP! BE THE PEACE YOU WISH TO SEE.
