My daughter sent me a YouTube link this morning and I was profoundly moved by what I saw and heard. It felt so strange to want to clap, yet have sadness and tears be my primary reaction. This was recorded during the 8th Annual Brave New Voices International Youth Poetry Slam Festival in September of 2015.
After watching this video a Sanskrit chant came to mind, so I will end this post with that prayer.
Lokah Samastha Sukhino Bhavantu
May all beings in the world be happy.
Om Shanti, Shanti, Shanti
Peace, Peace, Peace
