Say What?

~~~~~ What we know and what we think we know, live in constant conflict, a dubious do-si-do. What we believe, will never have to grieve. What we conceive denies what we perceive. ~~~~~ Peace is Purpose, Nonviolence is Strength,  Diversity is Unity, Empathy is Empowerment ~~~~~ Please, leave a comment and let me know what […]
