Our world is full of violence. Is it just me ore have we had a rash of senseless shootings? When did the war come to America? This is NOT the way things are meant to be! It doesn’t have to be this way. We don’t have to roll over and wait to pick up the pieces. If the war has come to us we need to fight back! Not with gun laws and metal detectors in schools those treat the symptoms not the problem. What we need, congress can’t legislate. How can you legislate love?
If we love our neighbors and our children like they deserve (not how we were loved or not, not like we think they deserve, not like we love our Ipod) we can teach the hopeless to have hope. We can teach the loveless to love. We can teach the violent to have peace. We can break the cycle.
If we spread love like a contagious infection instead of fear then maybe we wouldn’t feel the need to shoot each other. Start in your home, on your street, in your city. One person can make a positive difference. All it takes is one spark to start a fire to light up the darkness.
It sounds simple but it’s not. Why is it the things that seem like they should be simple are the hardest to do?
