"We rise and fall and light from dying embers, remembrances that hope and love last longer;
And love is love is love is love is love is love is love is love cannot be killed or swept aside."
~ Lin-Manuel Miranda

As a member of a multi-layered rainbow family, both in beautiful ethnicity and in all ways as to how we each see ourselves in this world and on our spiritual, physical, and choices of who we love, the hatred in this world is horrifying. Our sadness, if not feelings of depression, has to be lifted up by love, acceptance, education, and understanding.
My heart feels such pain for so many, many families. We have to maintain and manifest love and not hatred in return. And it's a challenge in this intensely polarized social and political time so filled with fear, anger, and hatred.
I pray for hearts to open into a world filled with all of the colors of the divinity and promise of the dove of peace and the beauty of the rainbow that is our true God given promise of hope for a better tomorrow.
