i disabled responses here, because i am not looking for accolades. i am not posting this to feel good about myself, or to gain your admiration. i am posting this because there are muslim americans in all our lives, arab americans too. seek them out. they are horrified by what has happened too, and they are going to experience the backlash. look them in the eye and offer some peace. touch their lives in a positive way.
also, at 9PM pacific time tonight (GMT-7), light a candle if you are up, and help send a blanket of peaceful thoughts up to begin the healing of this vast wound we all are bleeding from.
peace. i love you.
