My heart is breaking for the state of our country and the lives that are continuously lost on our soil in addition to all the lives out on the line and lost to fight for our freedom. We are blessed and surrounded with strong and brave men and women who fight for us to be able to go to movies, schools and dance clubs and live our lives safely and independently…yet there are terrible acts of hate taking place right here in our towns, Trying to push us into fear and doubt and submission. We can lock up our guns, we can ban them from the market, we can bar our windows and add metal detectors and give away the freedoms that those brave men and women are so selflessly fighting FOR. That might work for a while, it might make a dent, or it might not, it WILL push the hateful people to new means of harming others and to the black market (which is where most of their weapons are purchased illegally anyway) , it WILL take away decent people’s rights to protect themselves and others, It WILL instill a sense of distrust in our government and their ability to fairly protect us without taking away our rights, and it WILL NOT stop HATE. I am not saying I know what the “right” answer is, I am not saying I 100% agree we shouldn’t adjust some laws and regulations. What we should do: we should choose to spread joy, lead with love, and teach respect, responsibility and safety to our youth. We should speak with kindness to ALL people types at ALL times, we should show compassion and acceptance and humanity to all those who cross our path. WE are raising the generation who will run this country into the ground or out of it…We have the power to fight hate but the strongest weapon we have is not a gun or a bomb, it’s our words and our actions. Do not tolerate bullying, teasing, violence, foul speech or exclusion or others. Teach joy, love, kindness and acceptance, fight against making more monsters and towards making more heroes. People turn to hate and destruction out of fear and exclusion, don’t be a part of creating that environment. Be a part of eliminating it. I am not so naive to say that joy & love can fix all our problems, but they can lead us in the direction we need to go.
