I know I am told most often not to respond to any of the happenings in the States as I am, after all, one lowly Canadian. But when we hear of the rants and firings of people in their Government, it makes the World, in general, wonder what it is all about and just shake our heads, I believe.
When, however, the rantings and hate spreading around the world, dividing brother from brother, families down the middle, colour or religion of another and refusing to help those in our world who desperately need it, I weep. I feel the pain and it hurts beyond belief. I read some of the items on social media about defending the way things were, especially under their previous President, and I don’t understand.
I don’t understand that, by toppling statues of their history, it is going to make someone feel better, you are trying to erase your history. That is also happening in our own Country now, taking down statues of someone who was in our past. It is a shame that we, as a people, do not go forward ensuring it won’t happen again, not hide what happened in the past….
I pray everyday that sane people in our world will make sure that the hate ceases, and we learn to move on, working and sharing our fragile planet from here on.
Children should not ever be forced to live in fear and go hungary or watch family members abused because of hate or worse.
Will you try to keep the calm with someone like me and in peaceful ways, stop the hate? I pray it will happen. I want my children and my grandchildren not to live with the fear that our world will end in a flash due to outright stupidity.
This is how I feel and I weep….everyday and this is the truth, I promise you.
