Disturbing the Peace
I struggle sometimes to see how there can be change when there is so much oppression in the world – oppression that is so huge and seemingly impossible to change. I hear that love is bigger than anything, and I want so much to believe it, but when I look around where is the proof? Then I saw this movie. You are love in action. Not just the actions of aggressive power; not just feeling and thinking about love with no action. But instead you embody the combination of love and action, together, as the true power. Your story gives meaning to life, all life. Because no matter the difficulty, pain, oppression, history, violence, hate, you have been able to rise above and create change by saying STOP and beginning a different story: a story of peace. With patience, compassion, not giving up, you are creating change. I want you to know that your story brings me a deep and humble admiration and hope for the world.
