Can We Not Focus on the Good?
Wake up and look around our world is destructing piece by piece. Natural disasters are on the rise and it is not just a coincidence. Google the stats you will find it alarming about 28,400,000 results. The world is becoming more evil; millions of refugees are in refugee camps, millions of others are suffering famine and so much more. We can stop the evilness. ISIS is a group of people whom have been brainwashed and by no way represents the culture of the world! What these terrorists have done is embedded fear into our hearts and our heads. So naturally we look at people suspiciously because we are fearful. I have to admit I have even done that recently. Then I was disappointed that I would be suspecting of someone not deserving of my fear. So the fear just escalates from one to another.
I witness it every day on the train. I see the fear in the Muslims eyes because they fear retribution for their Islamic beliefs. I see fear of all others whom do not share those Islamic beliefs. We are allowing and giving power to them. We need to live our lives without hatred, fear and evil and restore our world to kindness. This post by no means is to minimize those precious lives that have been lost and to all of those suffering their losses. May those affected find the strength and courage to heal. Mankind is precious in every country and every culture regardless of the circumstances. Harboring hatred is cowardly, however to possess kindness is to possess courage.
21 Be not overcome of evil, but overcome evil with good.
