Be the Change. It Starts With One...

So many deaths lately. Children murdered by gunfire, people stabbed with no regard for the outcome and the heartache permanently left behind for the families and friends of the fallen. I find that these unbalanced individuals are making acts of aggression towards innocent lives, in a misguided attempt to prove their worth or be noticed.

How many people in your daily life do you ignore or overlook? How many of them are hiding depression, loneliness or social issues? How many normal people are forced into a situation where they feel alone and trapped and the result is to snap? Instead of arguing over weapon related laws, should not the focus be on spreading peace and hope to those who truly need to be reached? Should we not be more open and caring to those who seem like the 'outcasts' or unpopular? I befriended many from such a clique in high school at the cost of some of the 'popular' friends. I did not care then and I do not care now. We are all humans and deserve the equality that is not often offered based solely upon vanities. So what someone isn't as pretty as a model. So what someone isn't rich or the right nationality or race. SO WHAT. We all bleed the same blood. We all cry the same tears. Get over it and stand up for each other. Live life together and stop killing each other over nothing. Life is already too short. It's time to make a stand to make a difference. Start with one person. Think quietly and you will know who needs such compassion. Be sure to not be selfish and instead, take the time to provide the kindness that we all deserve. You may just save a life. Or many lives.
