To Our Children;
In light of all the hatred spread across social media this week, I ask that your voice be louder than those that hate. Your voice of love and acceptance be the voice that is heard. By giving the haters a platform, they have won. Create your own platform. Stand united in acceptance – race, colour, creed, religion and ability; become one.
I do not follow a specific religion, nor am I political. I am, however; a person who still believes in the power of love, acceptance, compassion and the human spirit. I’m not really sure what my message is here, except that Good must triumph of evil – always. We must learn from past mistakes. We can do better, because we are better. We have learned the consequences of inaction & silence.
Stand up against injustices, feed the hungry, dress the poor, house the homeless, educate the sheltered but above all….teach those that hate to love.
Everyone of us needs a hand at some point, whether its in recovery, financial ruin, loss, disaster or empathy. Help those that do not understand the power of unconditional love and acceptance. By hating the hater, we have become haters. Please do not do this.
The stage is yours. As young adults or up & coming adults; today is the day you decide what your future planet looks like. Is it divided by hatred or is it a world where differences are appreciated and love is nurtured ?
You can sit idle and hope this just passes, after all it doesn’t really affect you….or you can make a difference; small, simple acts of kindness.
The choice is yours. What will you do?
Here is a little John Lennon – Imagine, if you need more inspiration….
Loads of Love
