Today I wrote a brief biography on a peacemaker, Mattie Stepanek. I love his thoughts and poetry. In my web site ‘Learn Peace‘ he is listed with the likes of Ghandi, Thich Nhat Hahn, and others. His simple wisdom allows us to pause and consider if we too can be a ‘peacemaker’.
In my study of peace there is a young man that has stood out in his ability to put into words very simply, life lessons that takes many of us years to understand. His name is Mattie Stepanek. Now while he is no longer here with us today, his words and spirit is still having an affect on all who read his poetry. In a new piece of work that I am using to learn peace, Mattie is noted as a peacemaker.
Next week I will be posting about his life. In the mean time enjoy this poem he wrote that I believe describes how I am trying to live my life. To see this new site please go to the Learn Peace website.
Facing the Future
Every journey begins
With but a small step.
And every day is a chance
For a new, small step
In the right direction.
Just follow your Heartsong.
