Violence in the news

In light of the violence inciting news within which we are soaked daily, I implore that we do not split ourselves by choosing sides.

Violence is not empowering. It may feel helpful to the disconnected, to create space and push away the person or thing that feels frightening, but violence does nothing to build strength, even on a global scale.

It perpetuates a cycle of fear and self-isolation within which safety always feels threatened and connection with others becomes compromised.

Even when violence feels justified- Listening inward before acting outward enables loving power, loving powerful action, and the strength of creative connection with humanity.
