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.
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.
