If you’ve been following the news lately, then you are obviously aware of the Boston marathon bombing that took place on Monday. My heart, thoughts and prayers go out to all the victims -dead and injured- as well as the entire city of Boston. Their city has been flipped upside down all within the course of a few short days. With the standoff between the police and the suspect finally over, things will slowly return to normal for the people of Boston, but the question that always seems to remain following these types of events is, “How do we prevent things like this from occurring in the first place?”
In my very humble opinion, the solution is love. I’m not a psychologist nor do I claim to be one, but I believe that when people feel lost and unloved, that anger builds up inside then turns into rage and finally ends with some type of tragic situation. Call me naive, but I think if more people felt loved in this world by someone – and I don’t care if it’s just one person – there would be less school shootings, bombings and overall acts of violence and just pure evil.
I’ve got to tell you that sometimes I worry about the future of humanity. It just seems like the world is in desperate need of love and healing. I have no other choice but to tell myself that with so much darkness and chaos in the world, good people still exist, which is difficult but necessary, in order to keep moving forward. That is what Boston needs to do and that is what our nation needs to do.
Less hate. More love.
