The Name George & Godsign™

Hello All
Happy Friday

“As Mankind becomes more liberal, they will be more apt to allow that all those who conduct themselves as worthy members of the community are equally entitled to the protections of civil government. I hope ever to see America among the foremost nations of justice and liberality.”
― George Washington

“Fear of something is at the root of hate for others, and hate within will eventually destroy the hater.” 
– George Washington Carver 

“We have multiplied our possessions but reduced our values. We talk too much, love too seldom, and hate too often. We’ve learned how to make a living but not a life. We’ve added years to life, not life to years.” 
– George Carlin

Many named George have deeply and profoundly changed American history in revolutionary ways. Today’s Godsign message is to sincerely honor, pay tribute and point out a bit of the Godsign historically tied to the name George.

George vs. George  – the American Revolution

Before the United States were united, King George III of Great Britain ruled the new colonies. But there was a large group of rebels led by another George that were opposed to his rule of British law and order and wanted their freedom.

George Washington, called the ‘Father’ of our country, led the American Revolutionary War against King George. With thousands of rebels choosing to fight for the independence and freedom to rule themselves through democracy, George Washington defeated King George and won our country’s freedom from England.

George – revolutionizing science and agriculture

George Washington Carver was agricultural scientist and inventor who developed hundreds of products using peanuts, sweet potatoes and soybeans. In 1894, Carver became the first African American to earn a Bachelor of Science degree. Through his work on soil chemistry, Carver showed the farmers that years of growing cotton had depleted the nutrients from soil, resulting in low yields. But by growing nitrogen-fixing plants like peanuts, soybeans and sweet potatoes, the soil could be restored, allowing yield to increase dramatically when the land was reverted to cotton use a few years later. It was revolutionary in the agriculture industry and helped farmers grow longer, better and more profitably on their land.

George with George – revolutionaries of the military

George Marshall, named chief of staff when World War II began in 1939, was responsible for increasing the size of the U.S. Army, and devising Operation Overlord in 1944. His economic recovery program for Europe became known as the Marshall Plan, and he was awarded the Nobel Peace Prize in 1953.

George Patton, both famous and infamous, was a general of the U.S. Army, commanding the U.S. Seventh Army in the Mediterranean theater of World War II, and the U.S. Third Army in France and Germany after the Allied invasion of Normandy in June 1944. 

George and George – leading politics

There have been two occasions where a father and son both became Presidents of the United States. The first were both named ‘John’; John Adams (1797 – 1801) and his son, John Quincy Adams (1825 – 1829). The second time they were both named ‘George’; George H. W. Bush (1989 – 1993) and his son George W. Bush (2001 – 2009). The son, George W. led America through a revolution of change, for good or for bad, after 9-11.

George, George and George – revolutionizing entertainment

George Harrison – revolutionized music and a culture with The Beatles
George Lucas – revolutionized movies and film 
George Carlin – revolutionized comedy 

George – inspiring a revolution of worldwide protests to end racism

George Perry Floyd Jr. was an African-American man who was killed by police during an arrest in Minneapolis on May 25, 2020. Protests in response to both Floyd’s death, and more broadly to police violence against black people, were held in mass and in every state in the U.S. as well as internationally The June 13, 2020 edition of The Economist, in a cover story on Floyd and the protests surrounding his death, said, “His legacy is the rich promise of social reform.”

George Floyd was just a man who had lived hard times and was trying to get by in a crazy world. In a passion that America hasn’t shown since Dr. Martin Luther King led the way, George’s murder has justifiably revolutionized Americans in protest, demanding an end to racism, white supremacy and bigotry worldwide.

Georges have a way of being part of profound revolutionary history, changing lives and inspiring humanity to constantly reach for the Truth that all men are created equal.

God Bless to all the Georges who repeatedly show that to all of us!

“While My Guitar Gently Weeps”
By George Harrison

I look at you all, see the love there that’s sleeping
While my guitar gently weeps
I look at the floor and I see it needs sweeping
Still my guitar gently weeps

I don’t know why nobody told you
How to unfold your love
I don’t know how someone controlled you
They bought and sold you

I look at the world and I notice it’s turning
While my guitar gently weeps
With every mistake we must surely be learning
Still my guitar gently weeps


I don’t know how you were diverted
You were perverted too
I don’t know how you were inverted
No one alerted you

I look at you all, see the love there that’s sleeping
While my guitar gently weeps
Look at you all
Still my guitar gently weeps

Oh, oh
Oh, oh, oh, oh, oh, oh, oh
Oh, oh, oh, oh

Yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah
Yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah, oh, ooh

George Harrison decided to write this song when he studied “I Ching”, the Chinese book of changes. One of the concepts there is that everything in the world is related. So, he opened a random book, saw a random couple or words—which happened to be “gently weeps”—and began to write a song.

by The Beatles

You say you want a revolution
Well, you know
We all want to change the world
You tell me that it’s evolution
Well, you know
We all want to change the world

But when you talk about destruction
Don’t you know that you can count me out
Don’t you know it’s gonna be
All right, all right, all right

You say you got a real solution
Well, you know
We’d all love to see the plan
You ask me for a contribution
Well, you know
We’re doing what we can

But if you want money for people with minds that hate
All I can tell is brother you have to wait
Don’t you know it’s gonna be
All right, all right, all right

You say you’ll change the constitution
Well, you know
We all want to change your head
You tell me it’s the institution
Well, you know
You better free you mind instead

But if you go carrying pictures of chairman Mao
You ain’t going to make it with anyone anyhow
Don’t you know it’s gonna be
All right, all right, all right
All right, all right, all right
All right, all right, all right
All right, all right

Songwriters: John Lennon / Paul McCartney
