dear diary: another day

Peace is not merely a distant goal that we seek

but a means by which we arrive at that goal.

Reading this post, my thought was that for the first time MLK is not relevant to our current situation. The boil must be lanced before it can heal and that isn't accomplished meekly.
But on 2nd thought I realize he is exactly right. As citizens we can cause change in a completely peaceful way. The question is do we have the will if it means sacrifice or even hardship?

LOVE the music.

mary: Hello and Thanks!

mirth:The path is an easy one, perhaps that's been the problem. But then again, money and power not to mention greed has a lot more to do with it all! ; (

mark: A simple truth! ; )

let's talk: Glad you enjoyed it.

weezie: Glad you enjoyed it also.

Reverse the wording, and you'll have the Mantra for most of the world, and the root of most of our problems;

Yeah, my first thoughts were along the lines with Mirth's - are we willing to make sacrifices and go through any hardships in the pursuit of peacefulness? I'm thinking most prolly aren't. :/

Nice, great music - thanks again for sharing love. Peace.

Reminds me of the great Quaker t-shirt, "There is no way to peace. Peace is the way."

Coffee Messiah said...

ruby: Yikes, no snow yet, but it's starting to get below freezing at night. Sad too that people are consumed, by consuming. ; (

emerging: Another great quote! ; )
