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

Challenging times

A59D3B17-348C-4307-853A-08DED68C3F97.jpegThe sky is crying
The world is wet with tears
These are challenging times
People are more aware of their rights and are asking for them
They demand equality
They demand transparency
They are tired of being treated unfairly
They don’t want to remain quiet any longer
They are in the streets
They are letting the powers to be know that they have run out of patience

In a world where the top one percent have privileges that the majority of people don’t have
In a world where the focus is on greed and amassing wealth and increasing one’s power
In a world that we don’t respect the environment and don’t plan for future generations
Patience will run out
Protests will occur
People will march to have their demands heard
The world is on the precipice of big changes
