I have been distressed by the latest attacks in Paris. I don’t know what the solution is, but I know it is NOT more hatred, vengeance or bombs. I have made myself a polymer clay ring featuring the white poppy, a symbol of peace.
It is a reminder to me to pray for forgiveness, understanding and love.
It’s pretty chunky, but that is okay because it means it reminds me often during the day. 🙂
I know I can’t change the minds* of the terrible minority with their fingers on deadly buttons, but perhaps it will help me to transform my own fear into something more positive.
* Especially since I believe trying to force other people to change their minds is part of the problem.
