When words are not enough #Paris

This was going to be a completely different post. We were going to get coffee and daydream about Krakow. I’d share my wonderful mood and my accomplishments this week on my WIP.

But…

Last night my Facebook feed started filling with one story. Paris.

There is so much that can be said, but none of it enough. It is sad. Horrible. I don’t understand us humans. We are the only species on this planet that kill within our own.

Sadness fills my heart. Tears are difficult to fight back. My heart goes out to the people in Paris and all touched by this tragedy.

At the end of WWII, the US dropped two atomic bombs on Japan with the naive hope of ending war forever. We all know how that turned out. After 9/11, the US entered into war in the Middle East and has yet to leave. The war on terror is a never-ending battle.

When will we figure out that hurting others is not the answer?

People will want swift retaliation. People will want those responsible punished. BUT nothing could be done to bring the dead back.

When will we take a different path? When will LOVE finally be the answer?

So today, instead of sharing coffee, let’s look into our hearts and think about how we can be more loving and compassionate towards ourselves and fellow humans. Let’s go beyond thinking and theory. If we all put into action loving fellow man, what a different world this would be.

  1. It was terrible what happened, but I am definitely afraid of how the world might react now. Vengeance and revenge are attractive paths to take, but I don’t believe more violence is the answer. I never will.

  2. With you on this… so heartbreaking and sad. And things are only escalating. Even Japan (or rather, Abe) has rescinded the line that Japan will never again go to war…. just so he can bump China’s elbow in bravado. It’s just sad and horrific.

  3. FINALLY someone on my wave length. I’ve read so much on this and all of it inciting war. Come on, didn’t anyone ever teach them two wrongs don’t make s right? It’s about time we used love to fight back not bombs. Red is meant to symbolise love not blood.
