A Good Time To Reflect

There are those in our midst who are happy to light the match, stoke the fire. There are the fear-mongers and hate-mongers. One Idiot with a Twitter Account can set off a chain of hatred, racism and stupidity.

It isn't pretty. Or helpful. And you do start to worry about your fellow Americans.

The best thing I heard this week came from a Pastor who was marching in Dallas. "Violence begets violence." Nothing good comes from it. Just dead people. Sadness. Tragedy. Broken hearts and broken families.

It's a good time to pull back. Take a breath. Reflect. Figure out how we can all pull together. Find our connection to each other as human beings. Get down to basic principles...

"Love and compassion are necessities, not luxuries. Without them, humanity cannot survive." - Dalai Lama
