Words Crush Wednesday – Publilius Syrus Edition

I have no desire to get political, yet the recent atrocities in Paris cannot be ignored. It’s not just France that is weeping for lives ruined by unconscionable, senseless tragedy. In the recent past, we have borne witness to bombings in Lebanon and Thailand, earthquakes in Nepal and Japan, farm murders in South Africa, university killings in the States, genocide in Syria… We, the citizens of the world, are united in our profound sadness for the unjust destruction and decimation of life. Imagine the world we’d live in if we stood together every day, bound by a mutual respect for, and acceptance of, others. All others, regardless of religion, race, gender, nationality. This week’s Words Crush Wednesday quote is about just that, and, fittingly, was written by a Syrian.  The closer together we stand, strong as a collective, fueled by love, not hatred, the harder it is to rip us apart.
