My Thank You Note to President Trump | Interrupting the Silence

Whether you are religious, spiritual, atheist, or agnostic, you will find Fr. Mike’s words inspiring and motivational in our present time of political chaos. They’re fighting words, but not in the way you may expect.


[To Donald Trump] “Your presidency has led me to create my own cabinet of advisers, a cabinet of nonviolence. I have chosen Fr. John Dear, Fr. Thomas Merton, Dorothy Day, Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr, and Mahatma Gandhi to advise, teach, chastise, and disarm my heart. Needless to say the Prince of Peace will head my cabinet.” ~ Fr. Michael K. Marsh

    Thanks for posting this JoAnn. A very creative and powerful strategy: surrounding ourselves with an inspiring and peace-loving group of advisors in these times of turmoil and upheaval…I just posted a piece about a powerful 1967 speech by Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. that very much applies for today and may give us more ideas for creative, peaceful, yet powerful activism…I though you might be interested:

      If only we had a Dr. King today. I will listen to the “Beyond Vietnam” speech. Thank you.
