Very early this morning, at least 50 people were killed in cold blood.
I am so very saddened to have to talk about this. I also cannot NOT talk about it, as it is such a huge and pressing issue weighing on my very soul.
Why do we judge others by just one small part of their personalities? Their lifestyles? Their skin color? Background?
When something like this happens, nobody wins. When prejudice and hate run rampant, the world turns dark and ugly and the air is filled with fear and sadness.
Why would anyone want to live in a world like that??
We need to fight back. We need to do this by loving HARDER. Love FIERCELY. Love UNCONDITIONALLY.
Love is so much stronger than hate.
We need to stand together. We need to hold each other up. Love our neighbors. They are people. You are a person. There is no difference in equality or importance, no matter what judgements you have heard (or passed yourself.) Everyone has someone who loves them. Even if they do not know it. Hang onto that. Hang onto each other and know that you are NEVER alone as long as there is still love.
And there is So. Much. Love.
Spread it around. Help those you can.
We are stronger than this monstrousness.
FIGHT HATE WITH LOVE.
Don't lose hope.
Mother and wife by day, psych RN by night. So many different ways to view life. I try to take everything in and be very slow to judge.
