#7 Writing Is…
Amidst what happened in Orlando this weekend, so many things are being written. On multiple media outlets including mainstream and social, people are writing.
Unfortunately, in times like this many who write further the hatred that is spewed from the mouths of those less educated. It is so sad to see those in positions of power using such tragedies to further their agenda against certain people.
There is a silver lining.
Those of us who seek knowledge and truth can write against these people. Those of us who write to bring together people instead of tearing them apart can build bridges insurmountable by hate. Those of us who know that we are nothing if we don’t stand together to make sure that those who may be different from us do not suffer an unjust fate.
We are not judge, jury, and executioner in any situation. It is not our duty. Our duty as people is to teach those who know not. Regardless if we agree or disagree with someone’s position; it does not give anyone the right to further hatred’s agenda.
What we need is love. And as long as love is written across the skies we can get through anything. We’ll be able to stifle hate and those who spew hatred.
So just keep writing in love. Keep showing your neighbor, who may be different from you, that you will not allow hatred to dictate how you will approach them. Hatred will not dictate how you assist them. And hatred will definitely not dictate the worth of any man, woman or child.
Be the voice of love, for it will always prevail
