Human Shield

The stories are pouring in now. A few drops of hate have become a deluge. As a disciple of the Buddha,a a father and as a husband I cannot and will not result to violence myself but I vow not to allow anyone to be victimized because of who someone thinks they are. 

I vote to be a human shield for anyone being attacked or victimized. I vow to put my body and loving kindness between aggressors and their would-be prey. 

May I find the patience and compassion to forebear harm and sacrifice my own well-being to protect others.
