The world needs healing right now. People feel alone, lost, despondent. They feel like they're drifting and forgotten, forsaken by a world that they thought loved them.
This is a call. It's a call to you, to me, to everyone, to stand up and draw closer those who feel like the world is a cold, dark place right now.
We're warriors in a fight against the darkness, against the “ism”'s, and against the threats that hang over all of us. We're here to love one another, not to hate or fight. We've been divided for a purpose that we may not see nor understand.
But we can win. We can learn to love and unite once more. We can speak words of kindness. We can hug instead of fight. We can love instead of hate. We lay aside the weapons that we use to fight and join hands.
Love those around you. Bring them into your life and love them. Help them to heal, just as you need time to heal yourself. Hug, cry, laugh, and love one another. Show the world that no matter what is happening, you won't give in to the darkness that is threatening to consume people. Don't let the world drag you down. Don't give in to the hate, the evil, the darkness, and the cruelty. Shine your light and show the world that you won't accept what's happening.
Love will trump hate.
Kindness will trump evil.
Peace will trump cruelty.
Light will trump darkness.
