When I walked this evening, I thought of Dr. Eger's book, and then stopped by the community flag and took this photo. For some, it's a divisive sign, but for me it is a reminder of our hard earned freedoms - to worship as we please, to choose our leadership, to disagree civilly, to earn a just wage, to live peacefully, and so much more.
Dr. Eger wrote, "We're born to love; we learn to hate. It's up to us what we reach for." With her 5-STAR book in mind, I wrote a short tanka poem. I call it The Invitation. I hope you like it.
Have a wonderful week!
