The L.A. Post Examiner Transforms My Video “Plea for Peace” into Print
And now I present it all on Medium.
Below is the text, verbatim of a video about Peace that I posted on my YouTube Channel.
This text and the original video were subsequently published by the Los Angeles Post Examiner.
See the two links below following the text.
Thank you for reading and watching.
Herbie J Pilato
The world has gone a little crazy right now. So I thought I would talk a little bit today about peace, and how it really does begin with you.
I was bullied, I was beat up — mostly every day of my young life. And I never really retaliated — certainly physically.
It was more name calling and whatnot, but there were days when I was physically attacked.
And I would get angry.
You know, obviously, I was devastated. It affected me in many ways and I still have those memories. But my mom — when I would want to fight back — my mom would say, “Herbie J, don’t be like them. Don’t dirty your hands.”
Obviously, when we see violence against someone, it’s a horrible thing. But violence is not eased With more violence.
Peace must start somewhere.
So I am asking you, in the name of whatever Good God or love that you believe in, to please spread peace. To deal with the atrocities of today in a peaceful manner.
Because nothing, nothing, is ever solved with violence.
