A Vision of Hope and Unity

20181017_151012

We each need to feel loved and accepted don’t we? Especially in this time, in this world in which we live,

we need to respond in the opposite spirit of hate.

White Nationalists create fear of the other and hateful rhetoric, even in these United States.

Let us stand together offering acceptance of people,

even those different than ourselves, with a vision of hope and unity.

I’m standing with immigrants, and all victims of violence, in our world.

Amen.

Nationalism

lighthouse window

Nationalism has never healed anyone, and never will

seeking only division and strife,

seeking chains for children

hating the brown man

and his wife.

And global thinking is simply this:

loving your neighbor,

and loving life.

In the Year 2154

100_0191

If we are still alive, will it be any better? or will the earth groan under the weight

of our hostility? When the soil is depleted, our food will come from the sea,

 where millions will seek to be washed of their anger, and to return

with a sense of the beginning – to return to being human

once again. Perhaps it is not too late

to start over. At least

we hope and pray so.

We Must Not Lose Faith

“You must not lose faith in humanity. Humanity is an ocean; if a few drops of the ocean are dirty, the ocean does not become dirty.”

Mahatma Gandhi

We must hold onto the light of hope and encourage each other.

And embrace the wonders of our ocean.
