No Particular Place to Go

I haven’t written in a while.

Sorry for that.

Nothing has jumped out at me to write about.

Until now

There are some divisive things going on in my community right now. It is disturbing to see friends and neighbors at such odds with each other.

Why can’t we all just get along?

I have been told that I am too thin-skinned.

Too sensitive.

I agree…sort of. But can you really be too sensitive?

Isn’t caring about other people a good thing?

Isn’t caring about hurting people’s feelings a good thing?

And shouldn’t each of us be able to expect the same respect in return?

I just took a break from writing this blog to create a FaceBook page.

Love | Peace | Community

Love | Peace | Community

It is a daily challenge.

It’s not easy.

But we can do it.

This is not just about my local community.

This is about

Our Community.

The whole world.

We have become a global society.

What I do here in my little corner of the world affects what is happening in your corner of the world.

I know.

I should have been a hippie.

I would have fit in so well.

Can't we all just get along?

Can’t we all just get along?

Yes

I am a tree hugger.

Yes

I want to know why we all just can’t get along.

Yes

I am an optimist.

I love

Puppies

Kittens

Rainbows

Unicorns

And

Purple Dragons.

I am also a realist.

And I know, realistically, that we have to stick together.

This is a mean old world. It can be harsh.

But that does not mean we have to be that way.

I went down to the crossroads,
Tried to flag a ride.
I went down to the crossroads,
Tried to flag a ride.
Nobody seemed to know me,
Everybody passed me by.

Don’t pass your neighbor by.

I wrote a blog recently about our Good Samaritan.

Wouldn’t the world be a better place if there were more people like Matt?

That is your challenge.

Love someone today.

Be kind.

Be peaceful.
