The night sky is filled with stars, so there is light amidst the darkness. We too are called to shine. The simplest act of love transcends the insecurity of hate. Fear is only formidable until it is replaced with understanding. Compassion dismantles discrimination because it speaks to the heart and quiets the mind. Confusion exists in the world so that we can respond with love.
Truth is absolute strength and it is on the side of those who seek it. It is in each one of us to do good. In a world that is not sane, we must find peace in our humanity. Every human being has inherent value and is worthy of love. The connection we share with one another helps us realize why we are here. We are in this together, part of something greater than ourselves.
The moon holds court among the stars, illuminating us all. Into hopeful darkness, light shines indiscriminately. Tonight, the answers to the world’s problems are found in our hearts, not in our heads.
