Adapted from my post of December 11, 2016

As another week of too much manufactured outrage, far too many pieces of distorted, or flat out inaccurate, historical information, ends, and a new one is likely beginning, I wish that those I know who are so full of manufactured hate that they’ve stopped looking at anything objectively, would look inward to find out why.

“Instead of hating the people you think are war-makers, hate the appetites and disorder in your own soul, which are the causes of war. If you love peace, then hate injustice, hate tyranny, hate greed – but hate these things in yourself, not in another.”
― Thomas Merton

Change always has to start within.
