with bravery may we speak to our times…

(excerpted from the 9th Mindfulness Training of Thich Nhat Hanh’s 14 Mindfulness Trainings of Engaged Buddhism)

this takes courage to do. it is an act of bravery to speak up, to speak out when it is needed, when we feel called to, when history demands it.

we can see individuals throughout history, and even some today, who embody such bravery and integrity.

we can also see quite clearly throughout history and even today (this very day in Congress!) those who do not.

may we set our intention and do our best to embody such bravery when it is needed, when our hearts and history call upon us to do so. 🙏🏻
