Well, when I said in my last blog post that things could be a whole lot worse, I’d like to say I NAILED IT! Things have actually gotten a whole lot worse.
Just as we were coming together, we were blown apart as a country. We are in a place of totally division. We are divided politically, spiritually, racially, sexually, and after praising our police during quarantine, we now hate them and want to throw them away. I have zero answers, and I don’t know what to say to make anyone feel better.
All I do know is that we are each and every one of us responsible for what leaves our mouths. We are each responsible for the actions we take. We are responsible for what we put out into the world. I don’t care if it’s social media, words that leave our lips, or how we behave. We are responsible. My only encouragement or advice during this time is to be responsible. Take care in what we say, what we do, and how we treat other human beings. It is the most fundamental concept in life.
Don’t hurt people. Don’t hate people. Don’t destroy people’s lives. Be fair and treat people the way you would want to be treated. And above all else, love each other. LOVE. EACH. OTHER.
What would happen in this world if this was how we lived? Naive? Sure. Too simple? Of course. Would it solve every single problem from beginning to end?
What do you think?
Try it. I dare you.
