Creating Safe Spaces

May we each help create some safe space for others and ourselves, in each moment wherever we may be, where we may begin to nurture civility, curiosity, deep listening, understanding, empathy, love, reconciliation, and joy; so we can reduce each other's existential pain, which is the precursor to escalating suffering, fear, anger, intolerance, hatred, strife, atrocities, tyranny, war and genocide.
