Where in the world did respect for fellow man go? What is it that allowed our hearts to be filled with so much hate for anyone different than us that we're driven to demonize and destroy them? The bare minimum we can be is tolerant of the beauty that comes in diversity. Diversity is human, hate for that gift is not. All of the hashtags, shootings, the news, the helpless feeling in my gut and the fear of simply being have all grown old and tiring. I'm hesitant to think or say too much or anything at all in regards to the recent events because quite frankly, its enough to make one hysterical. Do whatever it is that you need to do to find solace and live the best life you can despite the ruthless world around you. Find ways to make an impact in your home, in your communities, at your workplace: anything counts. Pray everyday. Give peace a chance. Lets make this world colorful again.
Serendipity: a fortunate stroke of events that come with an element of surprise. We live for those moments and the adrenaline rush met by holding your child for the first time, learning that your long time crush likes you too, rekindling a once lost friendship, a warm hello from someone new or even as simple as hearing one of your favorite songs. Its in the times that you realize you wouldn't experience this "luck" if you weren't in the right place at the right time with the right circumstances.
