As I look at the happenings of the world I find it so easy to become dismayed by the ugliness that seems to be found lurking everywhere. Between natural disasters and terrible people it is easy to become sad and to give up hope for our planet. Humans seem to create many issues. My heart breaks for our world and the suffering that happens, often suffering caused by humans who treat others (people and animals) poorly.
In moments when my heart is heavy with all of this, when I feel that there is nothing beautiful left, that is when I see the ones who do good. The people who risk their lives to save other people and animals. That is when you find the light shown by those who care and act accordingly.
At this time, while I am saddened beyond words… I am also filled with love and joy for those who help others. If we have more people showing their light and helping then maybe we can create enough light to drive out the darkness.
This is not a religious post or analogy. Light and dark is well beyond religion.
This is about right and wrong. About using what you have to help others and loving people.
Let’s all make the conscious effort to share our light and brighten this world so that the darkness cannot take over.
