Between the hands is an awesome place.
There, you have the power to:
Caress a loved one or strike out in anger.
Build up a mountain of brick, mortar and concrete or
Tear down a mountain of rock.
Create volumes of literature, paint myriads of art work,
Compose epic poetry and sonata’s of music.
Write really hateful words, build bombs, wield weapons
To spread fear and terror, hold cameras to record
Horrendous acts. You can hold down victims
While doing atrocious things to them,
You can reach out to lift up those who are down,
You can sooth the fears and hurts of the victims,
You can act preemptively to prevent abuses, and
You can create trust between peoples of vastly
Of all these things you can do with your hands, which
Ones do you think will benefit you, your family and
Friends? Which actions will help ensure there is a
World for our descendents to inhabit?
It’s your choice.
