Darkness? That's okay.
Joy? Revel in it.
Uncomfortable? Let it be.
The pain comes in the struggle to be other than we are at this moment.

If we respond with hate
to their spewing of hatred
we only multiply hatred in the world

If we react in fear
when they rattle their sabers
we only perpetuate the battle
