Soldier Lifted The Barbwire To Help a Child

When people think in terms of “we” instead of “them versus us”, understanding, kindness, compassion, forgiveness, and connection can begin to take root and lead to peace. I believe the soldier in the photo understood this and was willing to risk his life for a cause that is greater than war or nations. May his heroic act be long remembered and inspire others to do the same.
With Love,
