A Call to Love

Shalom. Salaam. Peace.

In a world where it seems

we open the news and everyday see it.

Hate, death, destruction.

Remember this.

That we treasure the time to love instead of the time to hate

that hate only brings

Anger, chaos, calamity.

But love is:


Love is:


Love is:


And love is anything you want it to be. But it never asks for cruelty to be done in its name.

In memory of those who have died because of hate. Hate for how one looks. How one loves. How one prays. Hate for how one identifies, for how one knows themselves to be. For those who have suffered due to war, rage, and greed.


Remember how to love.


Oseh Shalom bim’romav–“May the One who makes peace on high, make peace for us all”.


Assalamo alaikum wa rahmatullahe wa barakatohu.

Peace be on you and the mercy and blessings of Allah.


God of peace and justice,
help us to change,
so that we work for a world that mirrors your wisdom.
Give us the desire to act in solidarity,
so that the pillars of injustice crumble
and those now crushed are set free. Amen.
