External threats are best handled through inner balance. Balance and self-confidence allow us the fullest perspective to most adequately handle any situation. Please remember compassion is not passive. It is not impotent. It is not weak. In fact it is active, dynamic, and strong. We must not cave in. In unity we can overcome any obstacle. It will take time and concerted effort, BUT WE CAN DO IT. We are all products of our past actions. Nevertheless, we stand up TOGETHER for what is right, what is true, and what is fair for all. Emaho!
