We are gentle people-- heartbroken people
Caught in the midst of a seemingly endless violence.
Snipers – provocateurs creating violence, fan the flames of fear.
This cannot be the way into our future.
I want to take to the streets
Not only to protest fear or to protest violence…
But to speak up for peace, compassion, deep listening – and sanity.
What are your relationships?
Are you in right relation? (The Hopi Elder)
We are all caught in this senseless web of violence –
that does not reflect our deepest values.
Create your community.
Be good to each other.
And do not look outside yourself for your leader.
