Just Love, Love, Love

Can’t reason with delusion; can’t reason with error
Can’t reason with illusion; can’t reason with terror
Just love, love, love
We’ve all of us been there; we’ve ALL been insane
This time it’s OUR turn to healĀ  someone ELSE’s pain
Just love, love, love
The battle’s already won – that’s the deal
No need to respond to a lie as if it’s real
Just love, love, love
Don’t respond with hate, or anger or fear
Give nothing for the rage to bounce off of –
‘cept a cushy wall of kindness and cheer
Just love, love, love
– Karen Molenaar Terrell

“And Love is reflected in love.”
-Mary Baker Eddy

You’re Still Here!

Dear Republican friend –

You’re still here! Thank you for coming back! After our last discussion I wasn’t sure I’d ever see you again! I’ve been blocked, unfriended and snoozed by a lot of friends in the last four years – and I get it and am not dissing anyone for doing that – my feelings aren’t hurt or anything – but it says a lot about your character that you’re still here.

Thank you.
