An inspirational post Shawn. Non-violence is the only viable choice. No more war. No more bombs. No more guns. Peace Now and Always. Check out what is shared on Off the Rails – Track 451. It will move you. And Joan Baez sings. (I have loved Joan Baez since I was a child.)
It also leads to an amazing experience Joan Baez has with Pro-Life Veterans of Vietnam. An exchange to know about and to engage in. Brilliant Shawn. jk
Sometimes the violence and anger swirling around us grow to the point we feel overwhelmed. Will it ever stop? Will those professing to follow the non-violence of Christ, ever read the words attributed to him? Will they truly follow?
As I’ve said here before, I am not a religious person, but I am a non-violent one. I do believe there is a better way for the human race than guns and war and hatred. That is how I try to live my small, private life.
Joan Baez, a hero of mine from way back, lives such beliefs on a far more public stage and with far more grace than I can imagine, In our troubled times, her actions, whether today or six years ago, are examples to us all. For that – and her divine music – I am forever in her debt.
