Friday Flicker (August 18, 2017)

Friday Flicker

Charlottesville has been heavy in our hearts, so we wanted dedicate this Flicker to the tragedy that occurred there this past weekend with a quote and photo that helped bring us some peace and inspiration.

This week’s Flicker is from our Connect for Peace street happenings in NYC, with a quote from civil rights activist and leader Martin Luther King, Jr.: "Darkness cannot drive out darkness; only light can do that. Hate cannot drive out hate; only love can do that."

The Flickers are a gentle weekly reminder to flicker your light of peace as often as you can, in as many places as you can. May your light of love brighten your day and illuminate all those around you. Subscribe here to receive the Flickers every week in your inbox.

This week’s Flicker is from our Connect for Peace street happenings, with a quote from poet Publius Ovidius Naso, also known as Ovid (43 BC-17 AD): "Take a rest: a field that has rested gives a bountiful crop."

This is our last Flicker for 2016; we hope you found them inspiring throughout the year. We will be taking a rest and reflect on what comes next. As you may have noticed, we also took a rest from the blog a couple of months ago. We look forward to returning in the new year with bountiful offerings.
