Writing about the Three Sisters made me remember other helping plants. You wonder, when thinking about the bold Marigolds, who discovered that they worked well together, or did the plants just make their way to one another in some garden?
It’s pretty much the same for Peace, isn’t it? We want to do Very Important Work with Peace, but much of the work that’s really needed is leveraging Peace, making it better where we’re able. Some people’s gifts are big and splashy (just like the red hot tomato!). The rest of us are best suited to be sturdy soldiers in the garden of Peace.
And that, my friends, is not nuthin’!
“All we are saying, is give Peace a chance.” The chorus may have started with a sit in, but it needs to continue with concrete, consistent (hard) work for Peace.
