I came across this inspiration this morning on Facebook; it hit home for me. Everything that we are dealing with from our lives to what is happening in society, I am seeing how many broken people are out in the world.
We are watching where we live be destroyed and literally broken into little pieces. We are watching people who are broken and not dealing with their own stuff, destroying everything in their path. It is so sad to see all the chaos and violence.
I sit back, and I wonder what the hell is going on with people, what is it that they are desperately needing. What makes someone so angry, what makes a whole group of people so angry that they will do anything to destroy everything in their path?
Watching innocent people being beaten and murdered, not for a cause but for an excuse. Watching business be destroyed and burned to the ground, not for a cause but for an excuse. Watching people inflict harm, and when someone defends themselves from the violence, all hell breaks loose. Watching how the police are being defunded and yet they are expected to protect.
I pray that all these broken pieces start to create a world that we all can live in without fear. I pray that we can also pick up the pieces and love one another and show respect to each other. I pray that when this is all over, we can all come together and rebuild our cities and make them beautiful again. I pray that people start to ask questions and start to dig deep into their own lives and wonder why they behave in the manner that they do. I pray that no matter where you stand politically or in any subject that we can agree to disagree. I pray that we do not teach our children to act like animals, not to be violent and disrespectful. I pray that we let go of entitlement and start learning to work for what we want. I pray we learn from our past and let our past rest in the past, so we may be better than we were. I pray we stop blaming our shortcomings on others and start to take responsibility for our own behavior and actions.
We need to start picking up the broken pieces of our own lives and start to put ourselves back together. We need to start putting our home, town, city, state, country back together, TOGETHER. We need to decide who we want to be in life and start to do the work to achieve our true selves.
