What Are You For?

“I will never attend an anti-war rally; if you have a peace rally, invite me.” - Mother Teresa


 

 

In my family we have different races, different religions, different sexualities varying disabilities and differing personalities.  I imagine that your family looks a lot like mine.

As parents we strive for our children to have a happy home, healthy food, solid education, everything they need and some of what they want.  I bet in your home you want the same.

As a breathing being I want to feel safe, respected, and valued - with the opportunities to become the person I was meant to be.  I believe this is your desire too.

We have heard a lot over the past weeks.  Mostly what people are afraid of, tired of, not going to be a part of.  And in their response I see fear - but not who they are.  I believe there is more.

Fighting against - builds resistance.  
Fighting against - exaggerates our differences.
Fighting against - builds walls.
Fighting against - creates wars.

So, instead.  Tell me…

What are you FOR?
Who will you stand FOR?
What will you speak up FOR?
What you are willing to work FOR?

There is a subtle but potent shift in this question that directs you into the seat of your power and opens you up to the heart of another.

So...

  • Do not fight against hatred.  Be FOR the power of love.
  • Do not fight against discrimination.  Stand FOR the value of your brother.
  • Do not fight against injustice . Speak FOR the equality of your sister.
  • Do not fight against inequality. Work FOR the freedom for all.

My Darlings, tell us what you are FOR and I will tell you how we conquer the great divide.
