I hate watching the news. It’s full of hatred and anger. I can’t tell you the last time I turned on Fox News and heard a story of peace and love.
Why is it that we live in a day and age where my Bluetooth speaker can tell me the weather report and my daily schedule, but I can’t feel safe walking out to my car after dark?
This week we celebrated Martin Luther King Jr Day and I sat through a passion filled chapel, but the whole time I was struggling with the concept of “peace”. Dr. King called for it and yet we haven’t gotten any closer in the last 43 years.
In Tuesday’s chapel, Michael Randle spoke about loving God with everything and loving our neighbors as ourselves. “We don’t need justice. We need to extend mercy to one another” -M. Randle
We live in a time where things can still be changed. Yes, I’m white, but that doesn’t matter. God calls us to love all people, no matter their race, religion, or walk of life!
I want to leave a legacy worth leaving, so maybe this is the first step. If we join together, we really can change the world. My parents always taught me to leave a place nicer than when I arrived, so why isn’t that applicable to the world we live in?
