Everywhere – yesterday, today, tomorrow.


When We become
‘I’ versus them

When You become
not the other, but the stranger

odious things happen,
cross the barrier
from mere thoughts
to barbarious acts

It is not
We – Them
I – You
Muslims, Jews, Christians,
Buddhists, Atheists, Pagans

We are ONE human family
holding hands in solidarity
reaching out
to whomever we see

my heart cries out
pained
at so much senseless violence
against my sisters and brothers
mothers and fathers
aunts and uncles

May there be
consolation
comfort
recovery
justice
strength
healing
– this is my prayer

May there be
peace on earth
an end to violence
love for all

May we see only the faces
of brothers and sisters
when we look at those around us.
