wonderful words… #gandhi

I don’t know about you, but at times like these, I’m a little overwhelmed (perhaps even assaulted) by humanity. I know that for me the tragedy of it all then makes all of the soul-restoring kindnesses that then happen even that much more potent. I am left a little raw. I saw a comment on Instagram yesterday about “an eye for an eye” and before I could even type it, someone else had written, “an eye for an eye makes the whole world blind”. I went from despair to relief faster than you can imagine. All of this emotion would normally take it’s toll, but I see so much love in the world, so much hope. It gives me hope that people realize that more violence is not the answer. I wrote on my personal Facebook that I don’t understand why we’re not spending our national defense budgets differently. We could literally take a small piece of it and help re-build areas of conflict – build schools, hospitals, you name it – and it would do more to further our ends than perpetuating this endless cycle of hatred and retribution that we’re embroiled in. Dare I say addicted to? Please don’t let fear & hatred change who you are. You are kind and loving and compassionate. Act accordingly. Speak accordingly. I love all of you so much. Have a lovely day, my friends. xoxo
