There is a lot of hatred, fear, destruction and violence in our world today. I know that this time in history really isn’t any different than any other, we just live in a world where the news (especially negative) can move at faster paces than ever before.
I’m not naive, and I know injustice needs to be acknowledged and addressed. And I know that desperation makes us do crazy things, but is our focus in the wrong place? I can’t help but wonder what would happen if we started focusing on that which is good pure and true if things would change.
This video by Alex Bryant – “I have no words, But I will not be silent” says it well.
8 Finally, brothers and sisters, whatever is true, whatever is noble, whatever is right, whatever is pure, whatever is lovely, whatever is admirable—if anything is excellent or praiseworthy—think about such things.
There are no easy answers. To continue as we are will only continue to perpetuate the fear and destruction. On all sides. .
Praying for those that work to serve to protect us. Praying for those that feel the only way to be heard is through violence. Praying that it will end.
Saddened for all. On the Journey, Jackie
