“I was once asked why I don’t participate in anti-war demonstrations. I said that I will never do that, but as soon as you have a pro-peace rally, I’ll be there.” ~Mother Theresa
I know a lot of you feel the same way I do.
And you’re frightened about what is happening in our world and in our own backyards.
This election season has seen family member pitted against family member as they choose sides. We watch hate speech and hate crimes escalate and get caught up in the noise that is our egos clashing.
My heart grows heavier with each bad news report. On a daily basis I allow myself to get caught up in the cacophony and it weighs on me. I find myself surrounded by a negative energy so strong it’s palpable.
But tomorrow night, that changes.
Tomorrow night I will stand for peace. From 4:30 – 5:30 pm, I will be at the Federal Courthouse in Binghamton with other peace seekers sending out energy of peace, love and unity.
A worthless and ineffective act? Not to me. Because for one hour peace will fill my heart; a peace that extends to everyone in the world.
Please join me and if you can’t please consider spending that hour in a quiet space of your own thinking thoughts of peace and love; add your energy to mine to create a movement that can change the world.
Now that’s a pro-peace rally of which even Mother Theresa would approve.
