Samurai spirit

A true Samurai honors all life
Does not want to fight
But will die defending honor
And finish the fight

Chris Stevens
A fellow former Peace Corps Volunteer
Was that
Believing in the way of peace until his end

The attack, deliberate and committed
His response, deliberate and committed
He died a warrior
Trying to help others evacuate


In the news, in the subway, on the streets
I see the ego of hate daily
In the same news, in the same subway, on the same streets
I see the light of life daily


The duality of all beings
In harmony
The great Yin/Yang of the universe
In balance

But today my heart is heavy with the loss of Chris
There is comfort only in knowing
Trusting in
Believing in the light

The great harmony and beauty of all life
Is always there
The moon can not shine without the sun
The moon needs the sun, as the sun needs the moon

The moon shines BECAUSE of the sun
And only through the reflection of the moon does the sun assure us that it is still there
Though we can not see when night falls
Teaching us to trust in that which the eye can not see



To believe in peace, amidst war
To live by the light of the universe
To trust in the Way
Celebrate it
Honor it
Defend it
Die for it


Here's to you Chris...
