A poem by Ken Jacobsen, a Quaker who lives in Wisconsin:
One Nation Under Love
it is good to remember
in this time of political stress,
we are all already citizens
of the country of Love,
in the democracy of Love,
one nation under Love,
the Love that was from the beginning;
and whoever we may choose in our elections,
Love has already chosen us,
to heal us, to make us a more perfect union,
to make us whole in our hearts,
and in our land.
Today, along with my fellow citizens of the country of Love–people all over the world—I am praying for a peaceful, fair, truthful outcome to yesterday’s election in the USA. Even more, I am praying that as a nation and as part of the planetary community of Love, we may honestly address the enormous challenges that face us all.
