Eid Mubarak

The Artdog Quote of the Week

 I wish a joyous celebration and blessings–Eid Mubarak–to my Muslim friends. I hope all of us can build bridges across our differences in pursuit of peace and greater understanding.

On this Eid al Fitr, I hope for peace and greater understanding between all people of all faiths.

If we don’t seek stronger positive bonds across differences that could divide us if we let them, then we are shortchanging not only ourselves, but also our communities, our countries, and our world.

I realized last December that I only seem to notice holidays are happening during the latter part of the year. After I even missed posting about Easter (my own religion’s ultimate big-deal holiday!) in April, I vowed I’d try to do better! I hope this is at least a small step toward that goal.

Understanding is key

The Artdog Quote of the Week 

Understanding is the first step to trust. Trust is how we create bonds of peace that will not break. Trust, not bluster, not force of arms, not putting the other down or destroying them. Unfortunately, we have a long way to go, for that level of enlightenment.

Forging bonds for peace

The Artdog Quote of the Week

“Peace on Earth” is closer to the top of consciousness for me during this season. Humans being human, however, it’s not something we expect to see–but wouldn’t it be amazing? There’s a way to move toward it . . .
