Find A Human Sunrise

img_7333.jpg

This was in the NYTimes — a quote from Alice Walker in a commencement
address at Naropa University (in Boulder, CO) —

“When it is all too much, when the news is so bad meditation itself feels
useless, and a single life feels too small a stone to offer on the altar of
peace, find a human sunrise. Find those people who are committed to changing
our scary reality. Human sunrises are happening all over the earth, at every
moment. People gathering, people working to change the intolerable, people
coming in their robes and sandals or in their rags and bare feet, and they
are singing, or not, and they are chanting, or not. But they are working to
bring peace, light, compassion to the infinitely frightening downhill slide
of human life.”
