Light UP your Way

on
“If you light a lantern for another, it will also brighten your own way.” – Nichiren Daishonin

A lantern provides light, helping to lead the way forward towards the future and pushes aside the surrounding darkness.

As I sit here watching in horror what is happening in America, I feel for the majority of the American people. The leader of the nation should light Up the way and lead the nation in peace and not instigate hatred. I am not an American but I feel for them especially to all my blogging friends. I am watching the news and it is just so hard to watch. May peace light UP your way.

    I read about it on the newspaper today and later read few articles online as well. Scenes like those may look okay in a movie or TV series but seeing them in real life, is certainly very hard to digest.
    Lovely Uplifting capture 🙂

    Oh what a sweet uplifting post. I don’t have words for what happened here yesterday. All I will say, I’m glad Trump reign of terror is coming to an end….at least politically speaking.
