No matter what the topic, the debate, the person, the place, the thing… Choosing Love instead of hate is always, always the answer. It is good for you and good for all.
Be good to one another. Put the bickering on hold, take a deep breath, control your anger. Consider what directing that hate towards your brother or sister in humanity is doing to you, to them, to the fabric of society.
Love each other, respect the differences that make us individuals, and just be good to one another. Be decent. Be the person you want your kids to be. We can’t control what other people do. Only ourselves. We are only responsible for ourselves.
Every moment we have the choice: an opportunity to be compassionate, or continue spreading hate.
Which person do you want to be? One with hate in their heart and ugly words on their conscience? Or one that chose to Love, in the face of darkness. Be brave. Face the darkness head on, with compassion in your heart. That is true strength.
What does fighting each other actually accomplish?
I’m not saying don’t make yourself heard – but there’s a way to be an effective agent of change. Be an example.
Love multiplies. Hate divides.
