The Hard Work of Peace

Peace is hard work. It requires much of us, individually and together. Peace demands that the life of each person is honored, protected, celebrated as sacred. We have been entrusted with one another. It is all we have. Our very existence depends upon our investment in us, in all of us. This is the pathway to peace. -bshivers

what if

what if, just what if, we were able to figure out how to understand, to finally realize, that every person’s experience of themselves, of their lives, of their very own journey is normal, and they have no need of anyone else’s endorsement, anyone else’s permission, anyone else’s approval, or of self appointed gatekeepers who long to enforce arbitrary artificial standards of what it means to be human. how beautiful would it be if we celebrated the way in which each person lives their one magnificent life and fought for each person’s right to be exactly who they are? what if . . . -bshivers
