We do know this: everything we do to spread compassion, understanding, acceptance, and peace matters. It is literally a matter of life and death. – Reverend Peter Morales
What a ridiculous week it has been. In light of the events in Boston on Monday, and again tonight, I want to share this with you. Hate is an evil, corrosive thing. It doesn’t always stay inside as a personal emotion, but can instead explode in violence. In times like these, reaching out to others and spreading love is more important than ever. However, we need to maintain this sense of community and acceptance even in times of relative peace, because hate is always festering somewhere, and the only way to stop it is to practice love and compassion in all aspects of your life.
Spread love. Spread it to those you don’t understand. Find a way to let your pain be transformed into acts of love and healing.
