German town pranks annual neo-Nazi march with clever counter protest

Don't despair, be creative.

Violence, authority, fear, tradition, and wealth are powers of the strong.
Community, humor, doubt, and love are powers of the weak.

Marie Howe - Annunciation

Even if I don't see it again -- nor ever feel it

I know it is -- and that if once it hailed me

it ever does--



and so it is myself I want to turn in that direction

not as toward a place, but it was a tilting

within myself,



as one turns a mirror to flash the light to where

it isn't -- I was blinded like that -- and swam

in what shone at me



only able to endure it by being no one and so

specifically myself I thought I'd die

from being loved like that.





-- from Saved by a Poem: The Transformative Power of Words, by Kim Rosen
