Violence, Fear and our Biases

I was not sure what I was going to write about today. I am in the midst of preparing to leave for another yoga training and I am feeling a bit overwhelmed. Then I got an email newsletter from the Senior Minister of the Unitarian Universalist Association, Church of the Larger Fellowship, of which I am a member. I decided that sharing her post with you would likely be more valuable than most of what I could write.

The Rev. Meg Riley is a particularly articulate individual whose newsletters I always appreciate. She is one of those rock solid people . . . the ones we all hope to have in our lives. As providers of behavioral health services, you may be one of those people to your clients.

As we try to make sense of or to explain away the violence and hatred demonstrated at Pulse on Sunday morning in Orlando, we may find ourselves Struggling for Words, just as Rev. Meg was.

May we all have peace in our lives and in our hearts. May we all experience love and share it with others. May we all find ways to let go of anger so as not to hurt others.
