I can’t handle the suffering that goes on in our world. It’s so much of it lately, it seems. I question “Why do they have to suffer like this? Why is this their reality? Fear, death, war?” It’s all too much sometimes, especially when it comes to families…..the kids.
The children. The children who live in this reality…..I have no words.
It breaks my heart. I’m torn because I post these photos on my social media of awesome vacations all over the world, or nice meals I get to cook in my kitchen, or hanging out with my friends in a safe and free country, yet there are people out there that are losing their family members on a daily basis, have nothing to eat, and are alone.
I’m not a news watcher but I do see headlines every so often and am aware of some of the horrible things happening in our world. And my frustrations, irritations and annoyances seem SO small compared to those living down the street from me, across the state, the country and around the world. I wish so bad that there was something to do to make it all stop….the war, the death, the pain. It’s totally overwhelming to feel so helpless.
The only way that I know how to change even the smallest corner of my world is to love. To show love to those around me. To those I come in contact with. To know that we’re all in this together.
The world is hurting so bad.
My heart tells me to love it back.
I wish we could solve all of the world’s problem with these four letters. Some days I feel like it’ll be enough. Some days, it’s not. In the meantime, I will continue to love, pray, donate, help, reach out to and be kind to those around me. I hope you do too. It’s the only way we can start to heal.
Start with love. ❤️ #healwithlove
