“When I despair, I remember that all through history the way of truth and love has always won. There have been tyrants and murderers and for a time they seem invincible but in the end, they always fall — think of it, ALWAYS.”
india is often thought of as a country of peace, reflection, meditation and non-violence. ironically, november 26, 2008, 172 people lost their lives and hundreds were injured. this isn’t the first attack of terrorism in india, but it is one that has affected people from around the world of all ages (6 year old children), races and religions. i choose not to interject political or religious beliefs/theories. however, i do choose to reflect on the hundreds and thousands directly and indirectly effected by this tragedy.
my thoughts and prayers are with these individuals and families. i am thankful that today i have my loved ones and i am protected by the thousands of young men and women in the police, military and government of the united states. it is my only hope that generations to come learn a nonviolent way of coexisting within the diversity of thought and belief that make each of us unique and amazing.
