There are so many broken hearts, broken spirits, broken actions, broken deeds today in the aftermath of the Dallas ambush. Words are important. Truth in words is even more important. Those working in media have forgotten the importance of words and the need for perspective and truth. Virtual images are interpreted by the mind as word and feeling spurred by the words invoked.
The words ‘killer cops’ are much different that the words ‘rogue cops’. One denotes a group and the other denotes an element that has strayed. Our words matter. I will never join a ‘protest march’ as it has no goal toward solution. It only invokes images of anger and despair. I will join a march with a stated solution ; i.e. Bring Back Our Girls.
What are the words swirling in your head today? Are any of them including the word “Peace”? There can be no peace where there is no expectation of peace. Expectations, now that is another post.
May there be peace in your life.
May there be peace in our country.
May there be peace in the world.
Join me in speaking of and expecting peace today. Speak the words above and noon and encourage others to do the same. A critical mass ill occur.
I am grateful for you.
