The essence of Memphis can be defined at a “soul-healing, spirit-filled city with a rhythmic flow running through it.” That is the description that our small Appreciative Inquiry gathering came to some years ago. We have extraordinary people who understand that essence and what makes this city/county not only survive but flourish.
They know that if something is going to really work to make this a city of peace and nonviolence, they must come together whenever there is something threatening about to happen and energize the base. We have so many gifts and when we all pull together we can make good things happen. The “Heart of Memphis” is exactly an example of this.
Saturday the “Heart of Memphis” will be an explosion of love! We can turn this city into the distribution center of peace through nonviolence. Let there be peace on earth and let it begin in Memphis!
