Rest in PEACE- Rev. Fred Shuttlesworth, Steve Jobs

Today we mourn the passing of two great Nonviolent Revolutionaries of our time. Two remarkable lives contributing in their own powerful ways to the Nonviolent Revolution!

Rev. Fred Shuttlesworth

"They had a white section and a colored section. Fred and his wife bought tickets, and they sat in the white section," Huntley said. "That was revolutionary for Birmingham of the 1950s."........

The Rev. Fred Shuttlesworth, a pioneer of the civil rights movement, died Wednesday in Birmingham, Ala. Shuttlesworth led Birmingham's battle against segregation — a battle that focused the national spotlight on the violent resistance to equal rights in the South and forced change. He was 89.

In Memorium

Nonviolent Revolutionary Rev. Fred Shuttlesworth spent his live standing up with love. He was beaten, he was bombed, he was threatened, he was hated for the color of his skin... and through it all continued to be an example of love. Thank you, Rev. Shuttlesworth, for the integrity with which you lived and legacy of how be nonviolent without being passive.

Steve Jobs

"Death is the destination we all share, no one has ever escaped it, and that is as it should be because death is very likely the single best invention of life. It's life's change agent, it clears out the old to make way for the new." - Steve Jobs

Steven P. Jobs, the Apple Inc. chairman and co-founder who pioneered the personal computer industry and changed the way people think about technology, died Wednesday at the age of 56.

Steve Jobs was a visionary unafraid, he lived his life as a Nonviolent Revolutionary and we are the better for it. Thank you, Steve Jobs, for your contribution to my creative process.
