Can you imagine not having the functionality to imagine or dream; unable to focus on innovating ideas for solutions. Let's say, 'vision is the ability of having foresight' such as solving a math problem or predicting the end of novel after reading the majority of its content. Last week, we mentioned the foresight of Theodore Roosevelt, El-Hajj Malik Shabazz and Senor Caesar Chavez; men of different times but whose vision was and is very relevant for today's insight.
Vision 'not the ability to predict a future' but an internalized sense to develop strategy for a determined purpose or outcome. Everyday we appreciate the vision of pop culture icons, social media networks and business developments in their creative abilities. We are experiencing the vision of someone's effort everyday as consumers, homeowners and hard-working citizens.
Just today I heard about teachers in Carson, California protesting over layoffs and even earlier a man approached us politely asking for work, explaining his disposition in being unsecured - I am sure this was not their vision in perceiving these unvisioned consequences.
On Friday March 11th, the world stood still in awe of Japan (please pray for them); in listening to a radio report - Japan's devastation was more due to the tsunami rather the earthquake. Japan's vision for building code helped withstand the five minute knock of an 8.9 due to having a vision from experience. Having a vision can make or break a situation for an individual, organization or society's long term longevity.
To the audience of Create A Voice - having a Vision is vitally important in procuring your rights for a comfortable lifestyle. Pay more attention to grass-root movements of social justice and public policy issues. A wake up call for action in joining community organizations, policy makers and/or those who have our best interest to heart.
