A  L  O  H  A !
I publicly denounce racism, 
bigotry, antisemitism, 
nazis, alt-right (or whatever 
name they hide behind today), 
and all other forms of hate!
Thank You Dad, Father-in-law,
"Sully" and all who defeated
Fascism in WWII

"It is how people respond 
to stress that determines 
whether they will profit from 
misfortune or be miserable."
            Mihaly Csikszentmihalyi

“Just because you don't say much 
doesn't mean people don't notice you.
 It's actually the quiet ones who often
 draw the most attention. There's this 
constant whirlwind of motion and 
sound all around, and then there's the 
quiet one, the eye of the storm.” 
             Amy Efaw

“Abandon the urge to 
simplify everything, to 
look for formulas and 
easy answers. Begin to 
think multidimensionally, 
to glory in the mystery and 
paradoxes of life, not to be 
dismayed by the multitude 
of causes and consequences 
that are inherent in each 
experience -- to appreciate 
the fact that life is complex.” 
               M. Scott Peck

We should all publically denounce hatred. Which is what racism and other prejudices are...

Galatians 3:28-There is neither Jew nor Gentile, neither slave nor free, nor is there male and female, for you are all one in Christ Jesus.

Hello, I am right there with you. I denounce hatred of any and all kinds.

Love the cute doggie mural. Happy Monday, enjoy your day and new week!

Hatred diminishes the soul of the hater. We should denounce hatred and violence and avoid it in ourselves.

Teresa said...

I heartily agree with your declaration. I also love today's pictures.

Yes, denouncing hatred (of all kinds) is the only way for us to go!

Sometimes it is hard to remember that the vast majority of people are so good! Thanks!

It was shameful to see so many Republicans defend the Nazis. Not all Republicans are nazis but all of them are Republicans

Thank you four bringing us so much to think on and enjoy

Yes, my dad and grandfather fought fascism too. We must do better teaching the next generation to love their neighbor.

Okay, you made me wiki Mihaly Csikszentmihalyi. See, I learn something new every day. But if there's a link between the very cool bulldog and "flow", I'm too dim to see it. Nonetheless, thanks for contributing to this week's Monday Mural.
