One Great Peace

Noticed over at inward/outward:

By Etty Hillesum

I want to be sent to every one of the camps that lie scattered all over Europe, I want to be at every front, I don’t ever want to be what they call ‘safe’, I want to be there, I want to fraternize with all my so-called enemies, I want to understand what is happening and share my knowledge with as many as I can possibly reach.

I would wish my life to turn into one great prayer. One great peace.
