Today’s news

purple flower

Our world seems like a very dark place at times

Injustice prevails

Rights are trampled on

People are silenced

The fear of the other persists 

It saddens the heart to read the news

Greed, abuse of power and crime the topics we see

Sometimes sprinkled in there is a little good news

But mostly bad news is what we hear

How can we deal with this darkness?

How can we keep hope alive?

Individually, I think

All we can do is to contribute to the light

Do acts of kindness without being asked

Encourage those around us

Take part in positive projects and

Raise children who will do the same

We can’t eliminate darkness 

But we stay optimistic and work towards better times
