“Remember the quiet wonders. The world has more need of them than it has for warriors.”
Quiet wonders…when do you feel like one of those? Or are you more the warrior in life, fighting every battle?
After this week’s announcement of the White Houses’s gun reform plan, it makes me think that we need both. Or better yet, maybe a combination of quiet wonder and warrior.
We need to listen to each other, quietly, to think beyond ourselves, and work for the children.
We need to have the strength to put aside our own agendas and pay attention to the messages in the Universe.
We need to use courage and conviction, intellect and emotion, perseverance and politeness.
We cannot stay quiet. We cannot go to war with each other.
We must find the balance. We must work for the children.
Quiet wonders. Warriors. Together, we can create gun reform.
