Our world is escalating towards an inevitable crescendo. Times are tense, frustration is high and horrendous acts against humanity are regular occurrences. We must not let this discourage us. We know that violence begets more violence. Love and compassion are all that can extinguish this fire. We must recognize our world's deep wounds. They have not completely healed. We must treat them. This will take time, and as we engage in tough conversations that simply must be had, let us have compassion for one another. Let's be kind, not right. Love is the answer my friends. It always has been and always will be.
The road is not easy, but it is the right path. We must forge ahead.
