A Kind Reminder: Humanity

Standard

Most of us have very busy lives, but let us not forget that there are human beings on this Earth that are struggling to live.

As you are eating your lunch, keep in mind those who are starving. As you put your child to sleep, think of the parents who are crying and wishing to see their children awake again. As you sit peacefully in your house, think of the fear and horror that are conquering the hearts of families as they hear bombs showering above their roof.

 Yes, they live on the other side of the planet, but don’t let that distance your heart from having compassion with the struggles of your brothers and sisters. Don’t let the difference in religion, race, or ethnicity build a barrier between you and others. We are all humans.

Quote of the week

Standard

“Before you speak to me about your religion, first show it to me in how you treat other people; before you tell me how much you love your God, show me in how much you love all his children; before you preach to me of your passion for your faith, teach me about it through your compassion for your neighbors. In the end, I’m not as interested in what you have to tell or sell as I am in how you choose to live and give.” Cory Booker
