Meanwhile, at the RNC...

As this New York Times article relates, the conflicts which underscore our country are in plain view at the Republican National Convention. If we give in to our differences, it would be easy for us to become a divided people, us vs them, those with authority vs those who feel powerless. 
Thankfully, some people don't focus on differences. They focus on peace.

I'm so grateful for people like these. Sometimes, all we can do in the face of tension and anxiety is join hands and pray for peace. 
Don't get me wrong. I'm not naive enough to believe that our nation's problems will be solved by holding hands and singing Kumbaya. But I'm realistic enough to know that if we face a potentially difficult situation with an attitude of peace, we can move forward and hopefully be that peace.
