Thomas Metron quote on peace/love and cause of violence

Interesting, again with the hate/fight for peace idea, but it’s relevant
to our Wall of Violence project in other ways too. I thought I’d share
this since it caught my eye:

“So, instead of loving what you think is peace, love others and love god
above all. And, instead of hating the people you think are warmongers,
hate the appetite and the disorder in your own soul, which are the
causes of war. If you love peace, then hate injustice, hate tyranny,
hate greed – but hate these things in yourself, not in another.” –
