“Even in our sleep, pain which cannot forget falls drop by drop upon the heart until, in our own despair, against our will, comes wisdom through the awful grace of God.” ~ Aeschylus
On a very difficult day – one of many in 1968 – Robert F. Kennedy gave THIS impassioned speech in Indianapolis. Bobby spoke about Martin Luther King Jr.’s goals and about furthering understanding, compassion and love even upon Martin’s death by assassination. Kennedy’s comments resonate today relating to the United States and our globe:
“What we need in the United States is not division; what we need in the United States is not hatred; what we need in the United States is not violence and lawlessness, but love, and wisdom, and compassion towards one another, feeling of justice toward those who still suffer…” ~ Robert F. Kennedy
PRAYER: Creator, stir in us your wisdom, compassion and love so that ACTION in the midst of sacred anxiety might be our goal.
Enjoy the day, filled with the Spirit!
