As I started to wake up this morning, I was over-taken by grief. My heart hurts so intensely.
I grieve for the innocent babies, children, mothers, fathers, sisters, brothers, and families, as they are watching, in horror, as their lives are taken in the most heinous and brutal ways.
I can't help but think about our own lives and the lives of our loved ones who have been murdered. I can't help but be reminded of the times, that I felt that, those who committed these crimes against "MY FAMILY" members, should die!
I soon learned through my own self assessment, that MURDERING ANYONE, in retaliation, is NOT WHO I AM! Nor, is this someone, I EVER, want to be! I can't change what has happened, And, neither can ANYONE ELSE!
The bloodshed will never end until we have a collective agreement which denounces violence. I can't change anyone else's thoughts, feelings, and/or perceptions, ONLY, MY OWN.
Today, in this moment, I will heal my heart. I will pray for Peace. I will help where I can.
