A Young Person's Perspective on the Peace Walk

Everyone is pure, unique, loving, and important. We don't always act that way, but we all are loving and beautiful people inside. No one is born a racist. No one is born a homophobe. No one is born a terrorist. Yet, this kind of behavior is all too frequent in the world.  You always hear these stories about little kids who don't see any difference between people of different races or cultures or religions. They’re happy to play with all kinds of kids. But sadly, as they grow up, they are taught to fear those who are different. They are taught to stereotype.

A Prayer Gathering

There didn’t seem to be any press around for this one. No TV vans outside, no one being interviewed…I guess we’ve seen enough of Mayor Kenney this week. So the January 6 Interfaith Inaugural Prayer Gathering presented by the Religious Leaders Council of Philadelphia went on without a lot of fanfare. Mayor Kenney appeared to know his audience and his message was one of mercy and redemption – reducing our prison population and opening our arms to the refugees were the two items he specifically spoke about.

Reaction after Pig Head Incident at Al-Aqsa

The Pig Head

Roughing it in the Woods and This Year's Theme

I sat down. I felt the moss squish under my butt and watched my heels sink into the damp soil. The dappled sunlight was creating dancing patterns on the cool grass. I looked up. The trees were tall. So tall. Their branches seemed to reach to the heavens. I stood up from my comfortable seat and walked around. I was situated on a grassy knoll on the top of a rock outcropping. There were some trees on the knoll, but the ground was mostly coated with luscious green moss and soft, dewy green grass.
