I stressed the need for a little old-fashioned Faith, Hope, and Charity in the wake of yesterday's devasting attacks in Belgium. Faith that humans are basically good and deserving, although it wasn't too evident yesterday. Hope for a brigher future for our children. And the need to be Charitable. We must not judge people for the actions of a few. All humans, and all frogs, deserve to be judged by their own merits and not by the actions of a select few who just happen to belong to the same age, gender, political, religious, or ethnic goup that they do.
I concluded by saying that Jackie DeShannon wrote a song back many years ago that is so appropriate for today...and everyday going forward.
"What the world needs now is love, sweet love
It's the only thing that there's just too little of
What the world needs now is love, sweet love
No, not just for some but for everyone."
Take a little time today to hug your kids. Pet your cat or dog. Be grateful for all the wonderful things in your life. Try not to focus on the negative. Negativity breeds negativity. And we certanly don't need any more of that! Together, with love, kindness, and compassion we can make this world a far better for every living thing.
