People are mourning today. They mourn for their lost countrymen; their sons, daughters, mothers, fathers, brothers, sisters, friends. They mourn for the loss of their safety and security. There may be some people who are angry, but mostly I think, they are just dreadfully, horribly sad and scared.
There are people in this world who think that they can fight for peace. You can’t eat to get thin, spend to get rich or fight for peace. It’s just not possible.
You can take a stand. You can stand with open hands, open eyes and an open heart and say ‘No’. We might not be able to do much to help those already torn apart by fighting, murder and terrorism, but we can stand as one, united in our wish for peace and our will to make it happen.
Don’t allow yourself to hate, especially indiscriminately. It’s a weakness that makes you vulnerable. It takes huge strength to simply ‘be’ and not to let the worst side of you out to do damage. Don’t take your poisonous feelings out on other people, they almost certainly won’t be the ones who caused you to feel that way. Don’t allow others to infect you, affect you or disrespect you. Just close that door firmly and take your stand in a peaceful manner.
Of course, I’m stating all this as if it were fact. It’s not fact, it’s just the wanderings of my mind today. I send my love to everybody feeling upset or hurt today.
