Hate is a SICKNESS. Waking up to the news that over 50 innocent people are dead and 400 are injured from a mass shooting in Las Vegas poisons my body with grief. It’s terrorism in our OWN country by our OWN people. WAKE UP EVERYONE.
Stop pointing the finger at other countries, other ethnicities, and other religious groups. Our country’s internal turmoil is self-created. The amount of HATRED and IGNORANCE I see comes from a severe blindness to human compassion and a close-mindedness to education.
How can we forget the atrocities that happened less than 100 years ago? How we deny the evils that once blackened people’s hearts to the point of selective human extermination?
We CANNOT forget our history because we CANNOT repeat it. The world once came together to fight for peace. To fight for the innocent. To fight for freedom. We need to teach our friends, our family, and ESPECIALLY our children the importance of love, empathy, and overall what it means to be a good person. Just stop hurting people!!! It’s that simple.
Today I posted this picture of me dressed up as Wonder Woman because I wish she was there yesterday to shield the innocent from the gunfire. I know she’s just a fictional character, but she stands for so much honor, strength, and pure goodness. Please let’s come together to fight the bad in this world. Wonder Woman isn’t just one person…there’s a little bit of her in all of us. We must work TOGETHER to PROTECT one another. Praying for everyone affected by the massacre yesterday.
How are you doing? Were you there at the festival? Was anyone you know hurt by the violence? I hope you’re okay.
