Fighting Hate One Lesson at a Time For our Children
I made the mistake of looking at the news before going to bed.
I saw this picture and I immediately thought it was a scene from the middle east…
But it’s not. This picture was taken here, in our home, in the United States of America.
The world is on fire…
Mothers and fathers,
Not a single soul is born with hatred in their hearts.
Not a single soul is born with the desire to hate their fellow man and woman.
Not a single soul is born to scream hatred out of their mouths.
Not a single soul is born with blackness in their heart.
Every single view and emotion is taught in the home.
Let’s teach our children to love for the sake of their future.
As a parent, I cannot fathon leaving them in a world that is so cruel and in a constant state of darkness.
They are the ones who can overcome any evils for that trouble us today.
They are the ones who can put out the fire of hate.
In order to do that, we need to be the examples of all that is good.
What a humbling lesson this should be for all of us to be careful of the crimes that come out of our mouths and the actions we commit that we know only we can stop.
Change starts with us.
I’m going to sleep in hopes that I will make the changes necessary in me to live up to this dream.
Good always wins over hate.
Let’s try try try to be the good.
Let’s make this the legacy we leave behind.
