Ferguson

Since the St. Louis police officer, Darren Wilson shot an 18 year old man named Michael Brown, many citizens in disapproval have been protesting in a violent manner.  It is not up to my discretion to judge whether the shooting was a racial issue or not (As I was not there).  When I think of this situation I think of one person, Martin Luther King Jr.  MLK was a well educated man, and was the leader of the civil rights movement.  Martin Luther King protested in a nonviolent and peaceful way, which made his ideas become that much more powerful.  He was influenced by Ghandi who preached nonviolence and peace.  It is disturbing to see buildings getting burned, people getting injured, and more gunshots being fired over such a situation.  It leads to a vicious cycle of violence and resulting in no positive outcomes.

Religion

Religion gives us the ability to draw connections between things in life.  It is religion that helps us find the meaning to life.  Everyone will have different thoughts on how to find god, so it is important to remain open minded.  We can follow Ghandi’s lead on religious ideas and resist with love instead of hate.  It is not necessary to worship god in a big church, nature can be one of our biggest teachers.  Nature can help us see god.  He almost reflects back upon us as we look into the following river and we can hear him continuously flowing.  He reminds us of the impermanence of life, as the leaves fall to the ground and the seasons begin to change.  Religion allows us to turn our focus to the more important in life.  It allows us to be concern with making a life, instead of making a living…

How can you make a change and hope to impact humanity?

Winter

It seemed to make everything quiet, like it was absorbing the noise of the world.

A sign from god to be quiet and listen to the little things in life.

It made everything seem so fragile.

I could almost feel the gentleness of the earth in my heart,

as the snow fell to the ground.
