I was all set to rain down a tirade about what it did to us, as a nation, and then I looked up at a postcard I have above my desk. I bought it in Assissi, and it says the following:

Lord, make me an instrument of your peace.
Where there is hatred, let me sow love.
Where there is injury, pardon.
Where there is doubt, faith.
Where there is despair, hope.
Where there is darkness, light.
Where there is sadness, joy.

O Divine Master,
grant that I may not so much seek to be consoled, as to console;
to be understood, as to understand;
to be loved, as to love.
For it is in giving that we receive.
It is in pardoning that we are pardoned,
and it is in dying that we are born to Eternal Life.

~ St. Francis



This is the talk that I try to walk. Especially on days like today.

If the goal is Peace, the only way to get there is by moving foward.
