I realized today that I am the first generation in my family who hasn't experienced the horrors of war directly in life. Both of my parents were born during WW2. All of my grandparents and great-grandparents experienced 2 wars during their lifetimes. As I think about them, from my childhood's perspective, I remember them as very sweet, loving, peaceful and most of all happy people. It never had crossed my mind before what horrors they must have experienced during their lives.
Once again it became very clear to me that I have to honor everybody for what they have been through in their life and let compassion and loving kindness flow freely to them from the bottom of my heart.
With all my Love,
