Acrylic on Gallery-Stretched Canvas, 12 x 12". Ready to hang!
― William Sloane Coffin
I agree with him and I don't. We do need to act collectively but we can also act on a personal level with those who cross our path. It made me think about choices. We must choose on a daily basis to act. To act in love and mercy toward those we see that are in distress, who look like they are having a bad day, who have never had a reason to trust anyone, who have never heard a kind word, who have never been told "I'm sorry." These are simple choices, but profound. They are deliberate choices until they become who you are.
One must be mindful. One must really "see" people, especially those who are "invisible." One must take time to listen, even when you heard it before. These are gifts we can give people, but it is a choice. Choose love. Choose mercy. Be kind. I will try to live this mantra. If you join me, we can change the world. We can act collectively.
