A good reminder that doing our part to make peace is the most essential part of our day.
Our spirits crave peace
But the sharp knife of division cuts the veins of hope
While unhappiness crawls under our skin via exposed pores
To every harsh remark
The cruel poison of disconnect.
“There is a lot of violence in everyday life, a lot of anger, a lot of rage, a lot of despair. I feel that I react more to psychological violence than physical violence. Physical violence is kind of easy to avoid. But there’s a psychological violence in everyday life…people angry all the time, people upset all the time, people who feel like other people are trying to take advantage of them.”
– Crime novelist Walter Mosley (talking about growing up)
We can alter this pattern. Today.
