Let the beauty we love be what we do. There are hundreds of ways to kneel and kiss the ground. ~ Rumi
This beautiful quote by one of my favorite poets is especially meaningful to me this morning as I have been reading through the final printed proof of my newest book, The Language of Love. A book of ecstatic poetry in the Sufi tradition, it is my spin on contemporizing the attraction we all have for the great lover. I am planning to have the official release by the beginning of September, both for Amazon and Kindle.
“The role of the rational opposition is to stand up for the rule of law, the electoral process, the peaceful transfer of power and the role of institutions; we should not underestimate the resiliency of a system in which laws are greater than individuals and voters are as powerful as presidents. This nation survived Andrew Jackson and Richard Nixon. It survived slavery. It survived devastating wars. Most likely, it will survive again.
But if it is to do so, those who oppose the new president’s reckless and heartless agenda must make their voices heard. Protesters must raise their banners. Voters must turn out for elections. Members of Congress — including and especially Republicans — must find the political courage to stand up to Trump.”
“Ray Buchanan founded Rise Against Hunger (formerly Stop Hunger Now) and retired in 2015. Comments made on this site are the sole expression of the author, are not made on behalf of the organization, and do not necessarily reflect the views of the organization.”
Isaac Asimov has captured my feelings perfectly. Those that refuse to agree with fact built on a foundation of thousands of years of science and rational study have a right to their views, but to use those “feeble and childish beliefs” to enact laws that destroy our planet for personal gain is absolutely repugnant…and I, Like Issac Asimov, personally resent it bitterly
