I’ve been struggling to make sense of what’s going on in our country today. Thanksgiving is over and Christmas is approaching. Yet I see so much hatred. So much division. What can I do?
Here’s my plan. Listen. Love. Act. I’ll do what I can to make the world we live in – together – a better place.
I’m volunteering to support causes I believe in, including refugee assistance. I’ll continue my work with Canine Companions for Independence (CCI), a non-profit organization that enhances the lives of people with disabilities by providing highly trained assistance dogs and ongoing support.
We can’t all see eye to eye; I know that. I probably won’t change minds or hearts. I know that, too. What I can do is show love to all, regardless of personal opinions. I’ll hug my dog Levi more often. I’ll continue to speak up for what I believe in; to do otherwise would damage my soul. I refuse to succumb to spoken and written words of ugliness.
I’m praying for peace and kindness. Join me.
