This design is meant to be a reminder, both to those who wear it (including myself) and those who see it worn, that strength does not lie in violence, force, competitiveness, power over, or material wealth. Rather, it lies in all of the things our culture seems to deem weak: compassion, understanding, mercy, peace, patience, love, gratitude, stillness, vulnerability, honesty, humility, silence, gentleness, non-violence, warmth, forgiveness, joy, truth, kindness…. Embrace. I hope this shirt will come to embody an idea that spreads like wildfire and is more powerful than words could say! Enjoy!
