Our country spoke loudly yesterday.
It said to us that there are people who feel angry, left out, disenfranchised, forgotten. It said that people are struggling to feel safe, at peace, secure on a regular basis. It said that people want to be heard, understood, respected.
If those people exist in our country, we have all helped create them and maintain their unhappy existence, even in the midst of our happy one.
So, for those of us who haven’t felt angry, left out, disenfranchised, forgotten, now is the time to reach out, to step out of our comfort zone and lift someone up, lend a hand, notice, listen, love.
For those of us who have felt safe, peaceful, and secure, it is time to spread that peace, to offer safety, and to help secure it for those who haven’t had it.
For those of us with a voice and arbitrary societal respect, it is time to hear the unheard.
Let go of the fear that your clean world is going to hell. We have a family to raise, brothers and sisters whom we have forgotten, ignored, neglected.
Be ready to share. Be ready to give. Be ready to equalize. Be ready to strengthen your insides and help others strengthen theirs.
This is not about now having to protect ourselves. It is about courageous service to humanity.
Love, compassion, action.
