I'm no expert on these things but I can see that this relatively young country is in need of much healing. It seems like the terrible legacy of slavery has left painful scars on all of us. ESPECIALLY here in the south.
I'm thinking of the Buddhist principle of Ahimsa and a meditation I learned years ago.
While meditating try to breathe in the negative and hateful things and the world and breathe them back out again with love and peace. A tall order, I know, but we've got to start somewhere...
Love and peace, xoxoMary
