At Shimon Peres’s birthday bash, Sharon Stone was a lead attraction. I can’t believe I just transcribed this! David Axelrod is there, Obama’s guru. And there are pictures of Robert DeNiro, Barbra Streisand, Bill Clinton, Rahm Emanuel and Barack Obama (by video) at Avi Mayer’s twitter feed.
Sharon Stone, on the need for peace, and biting babies in the mire of the past:
When we feel our courage, and we say, we will do the right thing against the status quo. When we will stand up for what we really believe is the right and good thing to do. And inside every human heart is a loving being.
Because when we look at a baby, any baby at all, Palestinian, Egyptian, Syrian, Darfurian, we look at that little foot, we look at that chubby little leg, that little ear, and we just want to bite it. We think, that’s a delicious little baby. We do. And when that little baby is this big and this big and this big and like David five and full of dreams, we want that baby to be an asset to the leadership that the professor knows is so so necessary.
But that baby is an individual, like you. An individual with dreams and hopes and an ability, the great ability to stand up for what is true and good. With a visionary voice. Just like David talked about. A visionary voice that can stand up for the dream against the lost and pulled-down into the mire of the past, and can say, I will do what is right. Each and everyone of you has that piece of leadership within you.
Each and every one of you is a leader, a leader of that thing that is right within you, a leader that goes beyond the status quo. A leader who will say, more than anything else: I want love. I want the love that will come to me, a love that will come to my fellow man, a love that will lift me up, a love that is visionary. That visionary love is a voice of peace. That visionary love is a voice of peace. That visionary love is a voice of the future, for yourself, for your children, for your nation, for the global reality.
