A troubled world


This was the first thing I read this morning after seeing the troubled news of Paris yesterday night. It was just the right thing to read.

With again more news of violence and hatred….

Ultimately we have just one moral duty:

to reclaim large areas of peace in ourselves more and more

and to reflect it towards others, and the more peace there is in us,

the more peace there will be in our troubled world.

Etty Hillesum, killed in Auschwitz in November 1943 aged 21.
