Hold Hands, Stay Together, Have Faith. We ARE the Change We Seek.




I was so moved by the 50th Anniversary of the March on Washington yesterday. Here is what I learned/remembered.

1. Peace is possible.  When we practice peace in our own lives, it reverberates. When we practice peace we also honor all of the activists who came before - King, Mandela, Parks, Ghandi, Chavez, Aung San Suu Kyi.  Our heroes and heroines were/are persistent, firm, and unfathomably kind in the face of struggle. We can draw strength from their witness and learn to be warriors for good too.

2. People want to live in fair, forward-thinking societies where everyone can flourish.  Sometimes we just get scared and confused. 

3. Holding hands and staying close, especially during the tough times, is vital. We NEED each other.  We BELONG to each other.

4. The glass of our collective life is half FULL. Get out of your house. Get into your community. SEE the amazing work that others do. You will be humbled and inspired by ALL of the stories that are not in the news!

5. The Universe is on our side!  We just have to keep breathing and keep believing.  As Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. said,
"The arc of the morale universe is long, but it bends toward justice."

SO MANY people want a more just, humane, and joyful society and are willing to do the work of FORGIVENESS and COMMUNION to get there.  Let's hold hands, keep breathing, and move forward together!

The future is open.
