You can make a difference.
We can choose to live in fear or we can remedy ourselves to be the face of change. It’s far too easy to cave. To feel hopeless and lost amidst the uncertainty facing the world. Hate and violence is spreading like cholera did once upon a time but the thing is?
Hate is a curable disease. It comes from our ability to embrace empathy. To see our fellow man not as a tragic disconnect from our misconceptions but rather a beautiful being capable of fundamental good. I have never thought more of what is possible than I have in the past 48 hours. Change is never out of reach. Love is never as shallow or lost as it appears. Dreams are never as vacant or forgone as they may feel.
We owe it to ourselves to be beings full of compassion and love. To put ourselves in the company of those who feel the same. We have plenty of time to change our course and everything happening in the world. It seems bigger than us but it isn’t. We are all one race and we can come together. Don’t use this as an opportunity to be a bigot or apathetic or cruel. This is your opportunity to extend a hand. To embody diversity. To take a chance. To rise to the occasion and silence the hate with kindness and actionable empathy.
After all, change only happens when you step outside of your comfort zone and sound your voice.
