words as weapons

Greg Bennick is a friend and one of my few "left standing" heroes. In the first video below Greg is speaking at TEDx. Greg also played in a 90's political hardcore band from Seattle, TRIAL. A song (500 Years) on their demo album, about the Western Shoshone hit me like a punch in the stomach. Not only did it piss me off,  it also made me realize that i felt compassion and motivation to change things that frustrated me. Hardcore was my gateway into several political issues, including Veganism. Greg was great because not only was he talking about the problems, he was also offering solutions and ideas. For the first time i saw the potential of a strong community.
Greg is a motivational keynote speaker, writer/ producer and involved in several other projects and causes (last know whereabouts was a supply boat bound for Hatti) . I'm thankful for all he does and all that he has inspired.
