Imagine all the people
Living life in peace… You, ..

You may say I’m a dreamer
But I’m not the only one
~ John Lennon, Imagine

I read the paper over my coffee every morning through email. Mostly The Guardian, or maybe the Washington Post or the New York Times. Sometimes Buzzfeed News, or any variety of different sources. I try to stay away from Faux or CNN, but I try to confirm a story through several different news outlets. And every morning, every single day, I see heartbreaking stories of shootings, violence, an argument escalating into someone being shot in the street, misunderstanding leading to people being hurt….or killed.

Children dying…..people crying….

I don’t understand. Do you know how….simple? …ignorant? …maybe childlike in some of the innocence that leaves me unable to comprehend the hate in someone’s heart…that leaves me feeling?

I don’t understand.

I found myself closing my eyes, turning my face up, and quietly whispering…”Please…..please…God? Jesus? Abraham? His Holiness ( I am, after all, a Buddhist), please send compassion, hope, love. Please help us. Please heal us.”

Hate in your heart will consume you too….


This is insane. We need healing….

Where is the love?

Go forth and send out some random acts of kindness! 😉

  1. There’s a lot of anger out there… I can feel it. I have a t-shirt that says: Spread Peace. Screw Violence.

    Peace be with you. 🙂

Have you any idea why a raven is like a writing desk?
