While watching the news coverage from Las Vegas today I thought about our confrontation with pain and despair. In my binary mind I think we really have two choices.
Give in and go down a road of misery and contempt.
Pull those close to you inward and be kind to any and all people you interact with.
When you feel overwhelmed in a world that seems to be sinking fast, recall the words of Mohandas Ghandi: “Be the change you want to see in the world.”
Fight evil with kindness.
Fight apathy with empathy.
Fight inaction with advocacy.
Don’t give in. Be the change.
