Post-Election: What We Can Do Now

flags

What do we do now?

There was a forest fire and all of the animals, deer, squirrels, raccoons, and such like were fleeing in the direction of a nearby lake. A deer spotted a bird, with its tiny little beak filled with water, flying away from the lake and over the forest. The bird emptied the few drops of water its beak held onto the forest fire. As the deer was running toward the lake, it watched the tiny bird go back and forth several times, picking up lake water in its beak and then flying back to empty a few drops onto the forest fire. When the deer caught up to the bird at the lake, it asked, “What are you doing?” The bird replied, “What I can.”

We don’t fight fear and messages of hate with darkness and anger. We spread the message of love, acceptance, compassion, respect, and dignity. We do what we can. And we can do things, meaningful things, for each other.
