I don’t have all the answers — no one does — but I’m pretty sure the solution to the world’s problems is not to make enemies of your fellow earth inhabitants, cause them pain or hardship, or try to wipe them off the planet.
There are solutions that don’t involve harming innocents. There are solutions that don’t involve making more enemies in the process.
Find something constructive to love. Find something positive to be passionate about. Work towards a common good.
Educate people without putting a gun to their heads. Try to get along with the neighbors you share the planet with.
Try to set a good example. Show people a better way. Without threats, without violence, without overly aggressive behavior.
It should go without saying, if you wouldn’t like it done to you, don’t do it to others.
The answer to the world’s problems is not in hurting earth’s inhabitants, it’s in helping them.
The vast majority of people all over the planet, regardless of their race, beliefs, or skin color, would much rather make friends than enemies. Even if they don’t agree with you on everything.
Be kind to a stranger today because it’s good. And it sets a good example. Expect nothing. Because the reward for doing good is to have done it.
Don’t let the 24/7 coverage of bad news make you cold and hateful.
Be warm. Be tolerant. Be open minded.
And above all, be kind.
“Be soft. Do not let the world make you hard. Do not let pain make you hate. Do not let the bitterness steal your sweetness. Take pride that even though the rest of the world may disagree, you still believe it to be a beautiful place.” — Kurt Vonnegut
