Sometimes I have nothing left to offer. No opinions, no explanations, no answers. In this moment I offer prayer and blessings. May our country and all its people heal soon. May we find balance, compassion and love for those we share this country, this planet and this universe with. May we shower all living beings with the same compassion we would ask for ourselves. May all who have been harmed, forgive and all who harmed, be forgiven.I send loving kindness to those I find difficult or resent. I wish to be forgiven for the tone I have taken and the tone I will likely take again. I sought/seek to persuade because I think it important. I sought/seek to protect because I fear there are those who are vulnerable. My values albeit may be different from yours, are a product my experience, education and actions. My intent was to protect myself, the earth, the children and all those who sought my protection. I am a staunch Buddhist and yet I respect and revere and pray to all the various names that God has been given. I do this because I believe all who live, fear and all who fear, need comfort and all who need comfort should find it in whatever form it takes.

“We look forward to the time when the Power of Love will replace the Love of Power. Then will our world know the blessings of peace.” William E. Gladstone
