taking a moment

we're sending out the newsletter in just a few hours.
i have a special 'thank you' post i'll be posting here that goes with the newsletter.

which keeps this post brief.
which is as it should because i wanted to take a moment to remember 9/11.
and for some reason, for me, the fewer the words, the better.
it's just so deep, and feels beyond words.

what are we doing to stop the hatred?
what are we consciously doing in our own little corners?
i've started looking with new eyes.
for awhile now - after more violence -my eyes can't seem to
stop seeing our power in our lives.
i believe with my whole heart that we need to see clearer,
stop looking for easy answers, step up and claim repsonsibility with
every life choice we make and open ourselves to learning from each other.
we create our world.
what are we adding to it?
in all honesty, what are we really adding to it?

to me, holding that, wrestling with that, working with that -
is a profound way to light the darkness of 9/11.
it's the start of looking hatred in the eye and saying it's time to stop.
