There are barely any weeks that pass that do not leave me with a heavy heart...
grieving for humanity.
I am sure that you are feeling the same way.
All one need do is turn on the news and it seems that the world has turned upside down.
It's hard to not get discouraged.
And yet I refuse to give up.
I refuse to believe that we are not capable of creating a better world.
I don't often address current events on this blog...
not because I don't care... I do, deeply.
It's just that with so much despair and heartache swirling around us...
I choose to be a voice of positivity.
I choose to believe that we are capable of greatness.
I choose to believe that there is hope for humanity.
I choose to believe that we are capable of this...
of tolerating and caring and loving each other and our differences.
I choose to offer a smile and a kind word.
I choose to keep love and hope and peace my guiding force.
The world is large, and I am but one small person.
I refuse to believe that I cannot make a difference.
Everyone can... in thought, word, and deed.
In the face of all that is wrong and crazy...
let us stand together for all that is right and good.
Let us hang on to hope.
Together... we can.
