Have You Shared Your Love Today?

I know that I am not alone in feeling tremendous frustration at the unbelievable amount of violence that has erupted in our country and continues to grow unchecked.  I hear so many people shaking their heads and saying “What is happening in our country?”

While going through my daily routine with a heavy heart from last weeks events, a song from 1967 recorded by The Youngbloods was playing on the radio.  The words from the chorus struck a chord.

The words from 1967 seemed to echo the grievance I am feeling.  I  began thinking, “What can I do TODAY to make a difference?”  Feeling disgruntled with hearing others say cruel and thoughtless words and not even thinking about the possible long term effects brought some questions to mind.

What if today each and everyone of us went out of our way to show love and kindness to a stranger?

What if today we all band together to reach out to the troubled souls behind the violence?

What if today we all show compassion to those who are struggling instead of using words of hate?

What if today we all think twice before uttering unkind words or criticize someone who is just trying to get through their day?

What if today we all work together to end this cycle of violence and replace it with peace and love?

What if today we all work together to build a bridge to create a country of peace and kindness, love and joy, the way it was meant to be?

What can you do today to make a difference?  Can you do it again tomorrow?
