It’s astonishing how beautiful this country is. It’s vast and so varied in its landscape.
There is so much land that is undeveloped, huge tracts of beauty, each unlike the next. Did you know there are hills that look like fern leaves with their crevasses and greenery? I’d never noticed before.
All that beauty. All that bounty. And so much hate that roils.
I kept thinking, we owe the land more than this. We owe Love to this Beauty and we owe it to one another.
Can we take a Sabbath from the divisiveness? Can we dedicate some time to really hearing those on the margins? We could try a day, and if it works, contemplate a week of Understanding…
It’s a lot. It’s hot. Just try it for a day. Be your best self. Be a welcoming presence. Be the Peace and Understanding this world needs. Because this land is your land. This is your country.
