You cannot shake hands with a clenched fist. ~Golda Meir, fourth Prime Minister of Israel
We’ve been told to expect tribulation in the world,
And we don’t have to look far to see a rocky path:
Crowded with thorns and brambles:
More often than not, cold and unforgiving:
But that doesn’t mean we should give up.
Because peace, real peace, is something most of us crave.
Maybe we’ve been focusing too long on the big picture:
And failing to appreciate how interconnected we small humans are:
Maybe we simply need to place one foot in front of the other:
And keep working toward new beginnings of peace:
