She whispers my name... Only I can hear

Peace



Don't just think it
Don't just say it
Don't just want it
Do it
...Make it happen
We are simply one people
We do not need national political or ideological boundaries or alliances to make this happen
Simply put
It is personal



I implore each and every one of you to take a step back
Find a good reason NOT to hate someone
And pass that reason along to someone you care about

Sad to say... the first two people I approched with this idea immediately rejected it, offering to me instead a justification for hating someone...

Hmmm. Having just posted a comment on a friend's facebook page today, assuring him that I do hate bigots, I read this and think my horror over things like the mass killing in Norway is not soothed by hating the perpetrator or the mindset that creates such horror. Still, it is hard not to hate him. I will work at hating what he did.

I'm way behind at your blog and am making my way backwards!

It is difficult not to hate in the wake of incidents like this one
I for one am going to try to make a difference by shifting my attitude towards hating ignorance rather than the ignorant

Hate begets hate, so I see no way to break the cycle other than confronting it within myself and encouraging others to do the same
