injustice brings pain
healing with silent witness
peacemakers of love
This poem is dedicated to the peaceful silence that holds everything together. I believe protest, politics, and communication would all benefit from more peaceful approaches. Being a peaceful witness helps hold a space for love, connection, and solutions to emerge. Angry protesting has never resonated with me. I’m a peacemaker at heart, who is heartened to see this idea taking roots in peaceful protests around the world. Within days of seeing the image above, Ali at Flashlight Batteries shared her poem called Finding Fault to witness for peace and justice.
May we be loving, peaceful witnesses to injustice, holding a space for love and healing to occur. This is an invitation to share poems that witness; advocating and standing for equity, justice, and peace. #poemsofwitness
Peace out, Brad
