You Make Hope Grow in Our Blood

Dear Mirna,
Your words reached me in the midst of a dark night--and Mirna, it is you, and all like you, who have seen the terrible failure that war is, and yet reach out, who are keeping hope alive in this world. Our words now can fly to each other, over walls, over armies, over nationalistic tirades. We will always remind each other that under the sweeping rhetoric of national leaders, of militarisms, there exists another people--those who want to stand on hill tops and see each other, to pledge face to face, the end of occupations and collective punishments and national agendas of hatred. I am listening always. Joan
