Violence and anger are not the the way forward. Choose kindness
Today the world enters a time of uncertainty.
A lot of people are scared.
My social media channels are full of disbelief and a feeling of helplessness.
Whilst we cannot change the bigger picture we can all make a difference. We need to show the world that we are decent people. Yes, we are all different and we all have different views. For goodness sake there are some pretty big things that my very best friends and I differ over but we respect each others' opinions. If we have nothing nice to say we don't say anything but overall we agree to disagree and move on. We never resort to name calling and certainly not violence.
Violence and anger are not the the way forward.
So today I write this to you.
Today, be nice to people:
Smile at a stranger.
Help someone with no expectation to receive anything in return
Build bridges not walls
Help those less fortunate than yourself
Contact a friend you have not heard from in a while
Hold the door open for someone
Check on an vulnerable neighbour
Choose kindness today and every day.
