Lines in the Sand

There has been so much turmoil in our world these days. It is difficult to not feel powerless in the grand scheme of things. I read the news and think that the only lines that should be drawn in the sand, save that drawn by the wind and water, is a line that encircles us in unity. Not a line that divides us as citizens of our world.  I respect the right of all people to their own beliefs. All I ask of myself, and of everyone else, is that we consider for ourselves whether our beliefs are leading us to be good people. Are our beliefs respecting the rights of other people? If we can say yes, then what a wonderful things that is! If we cannot say yes, then we need to re-examine what we believe and/or how we are believing it. It isn't rocket science. It is simply a core virtue of Humanity.  As in my photograph, it took more than one ocean wave to carve the beauty into the sand. And so it is with all of us. Let kindness and understanding begin with each and every one of us.....See you on shore..... :)
