“We are already one. We just think we are separate.“
The events of this week, as seen in the media, have left me feeling disappointed and deeply saddened.
And yet I find myself compelled to keep reading, to try to understand thoughts which don’t come naturally to me, beliefs so very different from my own. Because there will never be understanding when we confront hate with hate instead of compassion.
As long as we continue to see some people as Other, there will never be unity and there will never be peace.
The truth is that there is no “us” or “them” but only we.
We were created a little less than divine. We were made out of love and blessed with infinite, relentless grace. And we are commanded to extend that same love and grace to one another.
So let us start now.
