The last few days have been difficult. I have learned that two close friends have been denied entry to Israel. They are not allowed to continue their work in Palestine for the next 5-10 years. They are peace workers who have been denied because the Israel government doesn't want people documenting what is happening in the occupied Palestinian territories.
Today I had just finished playing basketball to get some positive endorphins flowing. After playing I was driving home and the SUV in front of me had a simple bumper sticker that read, “Love Wins.”
Caught off guard, I turned the music down to think more clearly. Love does win, that's right. I have to keep on believing that despite all of the poverty, lack of access to health care, and war in the world; love will win.
Thanks be to God, Love wins.
