Do Not Bomb Syria

I do not support President Obama’s drive to engage the U.S. in military action in Syria.

I call upon all of us interested in a more peaceful planet to focus our energies on compassion and stillness, while also taking steps to signal our opposition to engaging a possibile war in the Middle East.

Tomorrow, I will be participating in a Buddhist retreat with Thich Nhat Hanh. The steps we can take to build a more just and peaceful world will be at the center of my spiritual practice of mindfulness.

More soon.
