Defined

when courage is defined by the ability to stand down, and walk away…
when faith is defined by the everyday acts of work, love, play, and cry…
when the need to be well is more important than the need to be right…
when words are obscured by actions…
when we see and listen with our hearts, and move with our understanding…
when character is defined by how well we live, instead of how much we stand out…
when responsibility is taken on joyously and comfort is abandoned…
when ideals are more than soundbites…
when activism means humble service…
and religion is defined by oneself and God alone…

coexistence will be synonymous with inner peace…
