Last week turned out to be quite a ride to say the least... Intense times... What's been going on this past year with Covid, lockdowns, social unrest, riots, election disputes, more riots & national feelings of deep division... Things that we aren't used to experiencing to this degree here in the States. Something we're more used to seeing, 'over there' in other times and places, but not here, not now. Many are shocked and overwhelmed with what has been happening. Most people are wondering where their former life went. Did we fall asleep to wake up in some strange sci-fi dystopian movie? Who's to Blame?! This side is blaming that side. Everyone shouting louder and pointing fingers.

THANK YOU! I feel so fortunate, my gratitude can't be accurately expressed. And even though we aren't outta the woods yet, the camaraderie and support helps all of us to Keep Going through whatever comes next. As for some of the spe
The Really Scary Stuff The state of everything right now is one of tension. Covid, the election, the economy and social issues threaten further indecision and fighting amongst our leaders. Our current state of affairs provides a stressful, uneasy environment for all of us. So yes, there is still plenty of 'scary' stuff out there that folks are concerned about. HOWEVER... This is also a great time for those of us who are on this path as protectors... As PeaceWalkers to double down on clarifying where WE Stand with things and why. Now this isn't something that you need to post up on facebook or twitter... You don't need to take a selfie for your instagram account, a bumper sticker or a sign out in your front yard. It's simply something that you live everyday. Something that quiet assurance inside of you that you are clear on who you are and what you believe in. It's not something you need to try to convince anyone else of, or judge anyone by... It's simp
