Even the Dalai Lama agrees, prayer alone is not enough.
We need to be aware of the echo chamber most of us live in, and of expressing concern and outrage but actually doing nothing—feeling as if our words on social media are actually doing something, when we are just in the echo chamber of people who already feel like us. I feel that direct action is called for.
Courageous, compassionate action, but action most of all is what is needed at this time. We have to stand up against injustice, even if it means risking our own story, our own “life.” Prayer alone is not enough.
