It seems everywhere we look there is more bad news. It's overwhelming. But there is hope. The light shines in the darkness, and the darkness can never extinguish it. I am writing today to ask you to stand with me. Together, rooted in the power of love, we will stand.
Today is World Peace and Prayer Day, an international and intergenerational celebration for people of all faiths, nations, races, ages and genders who share concern for the welfare of humanity and the Earth to share in One Prayer. It has been hosted at sacred sites in communities all over the world, and this year Chief Arvol Looking Horse, the chief of Oceti Sakowin camp at Standing Rock, will be conducting prayer from the sacred site of Mauna Kea, Hawaii.
He's asking for the world to join him. Will you? Wherever you are right now, I ask that you take a moment to share in One Prayer. I also encourage you to watch this powerful message from Chief Arvol Looking Horse.
We were made for love.
