“Preconceived notions are the locks on the door to wisdom.”
— Merry Browne
The real tragedy of Trayvon Martin is …
… he won’t be the last.
Until we have the courage to put down …
… our prejudices,
… our guns,
… and our self-righteousness.
And have the compassion to listen to those who …
… look different,
… think different,
… and act different than us.
This weekend’s gift of time … Spent a weekend camping with our children. Children, who I hope grow to be strong, courageous, and compassionate men and women – willing to listen more than they speak, give more than they take, and are benevolent to those who think differently.
