Our friend and contributing writer to Vibin’ Higher, Jefferey Jaxen, recently published his latest spoken word video, and it’s a home run (as usual)! Check it out, and read what Jefferey had to say about it below:
“I recently was approached by Chris Duane, creator of the widely popular Sons of Liberty Academy, Silver Shield and Silver Bullet Series. I was truly honoured to be given the task of creating a spoken word piece and accompanying video for his new 1 ounce silver coin. The soon to be released coin is officially titled ‘Non Vi Virtute Vici’ which translates into ‘Not by violence but by virtue I have conquered.’ So I set off to find and describe the elusive thing contained within the hearts of rare individuals throughout time. A flash of lightning in the bottle that when viewed with timeless eyes only betrays the darkness of humanity for a quick glimpse. Almost as if to hold off it’s greedy encroachment just enough to let another generation through the slowly closing door of some well-lit room. A conscious threat to the night sky as if to say “you only exist because we allow you to.” My creative energy was focused on an attempt to find the main nerve of blazing virtue and integrity which can instantly lay waste to violence and evil. Through the thoughts, actions and sacrifice of these people, civilizations are permanently altered, minds changed and societies forced to face their shortcomings. They are here to continually point out the faults, absurdities and dark corners of humanity. Leading by example, their lessons leave marks on our collective DNA that are passed down through generations, uplifting us in times of need and forgetfulness. Evil, tyranny and collectivism immediately reveals its glaring weaknesses and underhandedness in the spotlight of these great individuals. This piece is dedicated to them, their sacrifice, and most importantly, the continuation of their passion. For without them our world would not contain as much happiness, beauty, passion, laughter, faith, integrity, or virtue.”
