Peace Requires Justice. Justice Requires Integrity.
We are grateful today for the words of Dr. Zach Bush on his instagram about the attempt at insurrection at our nation’s capitol this week.
“We can rebuild a new nation built not on ethos, which is vulnerable to to twisting interpretations, but on integrity.
Integrity craves creativity, the fertile ground of which is biodiversity, of perspective, of culture, of spirit. …
What is the future you want to create?
Let’s set the dinner table tonight with extra chairs. Let’s start this revolution of integrity around the dinner table.”
We are also grateful today for this photo above by Susan Walsh of the associated Press. The Peace Monument is strategically located in view of the Capitol to remind us that peace is a goal we continually strive for over all the ages. To paraphrase MKL, this week’s events are part of the long arc of history, which must bend toward more peace. And peace cannot come without justice, justice which requires integrity.
