That’s some good advice. The Washington Post ran an article this week about , who is doing just that. Eight of his soldiers were killed in an attack by more than 300 insurgents in Afghanistan last year. Today he is listening to the enemy.  Negotiations are underway to form an alliance with the insurgent leader Mullah Sadiq, who agreed to work with the Afghan government and fight the more-radical Taliban insurgents. ? I sure hope so. Here’s a listening prayer we all can agree on.

Your voice is like the rain that gently hits the roof of my car.
It’s a song asking me to open a door and exit.  
Get up.  Move on.
Rise from there and laugh again.  
But all I want to do, for just now, is sit inside and listen.  
You make everything new again.
