“Allow yourself to be a torch and allow the flame of our torch to be transmitted to other torches. Practicing like that, you can help peace and joy grow in the entire world.”
–Thich Nhat Hanh
I will always be a messenger of peace and can’t ever imagine believing in violence no matter what. So sad to read the small caption under the picture of Kip Jacoby in today’s newspaper. Kip went to school with Derek. He enlisted after school and was killed 9 years ago during “Operation Eduring Freedom.” The caption under his (the above) picture today read “Mom misses you.” And forever my heart will break for this woman I never met, because that’s how moms roll.
Let’s light our torches and spread peace and joy wherever we go. It’s so much better than the alternatives.
