Earth doesn’t have to be heaven but it shouldn’t be hell

Gaza girls Jan 6 2015

The world has been too much with us lately, with the foul taking up too many headlines. We always need catch our breath & pay attention to what makes political struggle worth commitment & life worth living.

These little girls live in Gaza. The older one is protecting her younger sister from the bitter cold. We want a world where all children are safe & cherished, a world suitable for children to live & love in, where the violence & ugliness of social hatred cannot thrive & certainly doesn’t profit. Some say that can only happen in heaven or utopia. But what’s to stop us from trying here on Earth?
