Letting It Begin with Me

Dear friends,love revolution

My mind has been stuck on the words from a holiday song I heard recently, “…in his name all oppression shall cease.” I am drawn to those words of hope at the same time that I am baffled by the reality that many of the people that sing that song want to ban Muslims from our country. Some of the same people who will celebrate Christmas will not be alarmed by attempts to intimidate and threaten Jews or people of color. In the end I realize that the only person I can change is me and perhaps my example will change another. So I am reminded to look inside for the oppression that I need to cease and perhaps find a kinder, gentler feeling for those I cannot agree with. If I can do that, maybe they can too…Betsy
