What do you say when words fail,
And the world seems no longer a place you know?
What do you say when people fail you, hearts rendered numb from grief and disappointment?
What do you say when injustice is the law of the land and your voice seems lost on whipping winds of division?
I don’t know the answers, but my plan is to speak of love,
To face anger with understanding,
To dream of a peaceful world, all the while doing the small things I can to help make it so.
We are what we say, and we are mostly what we do, so choose wisely,
And choose love.
