Please come downtown on Monday to show your support and solidarity! South Seattle has suffered greatly from continuing violence - partly as a result of being under-served in all ways and over-burdened with low income housing which brings many poor people without means of supporting local businesses. Time for ALL of Seattle to step-up and help the voice of the south end be heard! Gather at Westlake for a rally at 11 am, march to City Hall and gather there noon to 12:30. …Continue

Yesterday evening a man came by the corner saying he saw the compassion book in the restaurant across the street. He flipped through the book for a couple minutes, deciding whether or not to purchase the book. He asked how much it was. I told him fifteen dollars. He seemed like he didn't know if he wanted to spend fifteen dollars on the book. He left.
About 20 minutes later he came back and decided to purchase the book. I took the money, gave him his receipt, and asked him if…Continue

In the Silence of this loss, we are standing still
There is no movement to be made.
But to accept and to see
that we are bound together.
Silenced by the silence
We reach out beyond language and pain
To find there is a world where we can live again
No answers for the violence

"O Lord, bestow upon my soul
the most prestigious status of a Love-Worshiper.
Once my soul is Blessed by Your Love, it will be fully capable and ready to start relaying Your Love Messages
without even uttering a single word.
Even though the tongue is always used to better explain things,
the silent and tongueless
Talk of Love
Is the most enlightening of All…

It’s affected all of us – whether we knew the victims or not – perhaps threatening our sense of safety and trust in the goodness of those around us. Where there is shadow, there is also light – even though it may be hidden.

Foremost, I offer gratitude for being able to write this blog this morning.
On Saturday morning at 12:01am I began the 24-hour Compassion Marathon at the corner. The marathon consisted of being at the corner the whole day Saturday. As soon as I sat down and completed the usual routine of settling in at the corner, someone came by and sat down next to me saying that he saw me there all the time and wanted to talk and find out what I do there. Mind you, this is around midnight,…Continue

The tragic mass murder this week in Seattle is disturbing on many levels. But the actions of bystanders responding to the still-shocking circumstances shows an important contrast — that good people can step up and make a difference.
HOPE is still alive in the city. Last…Continue
