The divide in our country has never been more sharp or clear as it was the morning after the 2016 election. One of the first conversations Fia & I had that morning was this: we've said for awhile now that this is the work we choose to do, loving the whole world. Not excusing it, or justifying it, or complaining about it. Where there is fear, love. Where there is anger, love. Where there are people marginalized & unheard, love. Not a passive standing-by version of love, but love actively asking What can I do now?
Because from our perspective, this is exactly what we've been up to & now there's no real question for us about who we choose to be.
So, this. I originally wrote this for the opening in our hearts that came with 9/11. It seems to have a whole new meaning now, but still, it stands. We all get to make the choice to hold our whole world in arms of love...
with love for us all,
brian & fia
It's available as an 11x14 print on acid-free paper with white outer/black inner double matte, protected in a clear poly sleeve.
In these days, we still choose to walk like giants & hold the world in arms grown strong with love & there may be many things we forget in the days to come, but this will not be one of them...
