I've been really inspired lately by the incredibly uplifting response to the challenging world events I've been seeing on social media. People I follow have been posting helpful post that offer tangible steps people can take to increase the love, hope, and goodness that composes the global connected experience. Those messages got me thinking about symbols of hope and peace that humanity has rallied around in the past and I always think about the dove. It's one of my favorite symbols especially this time of year and many of my holiday decorations feature a dove (also because I love birds, in general).
So my poem tonight is of the dove and hopefully inspires some of us to holding peace in our hearts where hate or anger might come easier. I hope you like it, and even if you don't, I love you.
