This isn’t my usual type of post, but it is something I think about. A lot. I’m a hippie at heart and there is nothing wrong with that. All we need is love. Start from that place and the difference will amaze you.
It hurts me to my core to see people torn apart by stupidity and hatred. I can’t help it. We as people should have the ability to recognize and celebrate our differences. We should put aside petty squabbles to help the nation and world heal all year, not just when disaster strikes. Life should not be an Us vs. Them competition 24/7. A little competition is good, but come on!
Look at what the power of we can do! In town, people rallied and adopted over 200 pets from the Charleston Animal Society more than once. People rallied and helped to find the person who killed two dogs and attempted to kill a third. Groups come together to clean neighborhoods, build houses, feed others, and so on. People do not hesitate to give time, money, goods, and good thoughts to help those in need.
We think of others as our bothers and sisters in need only when they need us. Let’s try to do it more often. No money? Donate time. No time? Send good thoughts. Think you have nothing to give? Give a few minutes to send good healing thoughts.
More love and less hate. Hell, less indifference would make the community better. Don’t think you can save the world? Don’t reach that far. Start at home.
