Choose Love

Jesi Kay

Jesi Kay, poet and aspiring novelist, was born in the Texas panhandle where wide skies, lazy summer days, and rolling thunderstorms sparked her imagination and left lasting memories in her blood. An early reader, poetry and mythology were her passions. So much so that when she was ten years old her step-father gave her his college mythology textbooks to read, which were full of classic poetry and more than enough tales to fill her romantic and inquisitive nature. Jesi loves reading, art, going to the theater, the romanticism of the Victorian era (but not the missing conveniences of indoor plumbing and central air conditioning), running when the heat and humidity cooperate, and cold weather so she can wear her favorite boots and knitwear. Also, she still has those college mythology textbooks, a little worse for wear over time but still intact and telling their stories to her. Jesi is a contributor at The Well Tempered Bards blog and at www.octpowrimo.com.

    Thank you, Jesi. I am sure that, but for the very rare true predator, all violence, all hate, is rooted in fear and the false promise that these things have power to put fear to rest. One does not comfort a frightened child with screaming or blows, only love and kindness can do that. So it is with us all. Love is the only engine of survival.

      Agreed. Violent retaliation is already beginning and that is only increasing more fear. All I can do is retaliate with love and hope. With enough of both maybe one day the majority of us who believe in those things will overcome those who fear the different.
