I believe in love and light. I've said it before and I'll say it again and again and again: I believe that love breeds love and light begets light.
And I believe that we can use as much of both as we can muster right now, when it seems that darkness is seeping in through the cracks and under doorways and it feels reflexive to be angry and to hate the hate, which only mean we have to love harder and deeper and more. we have to be the goodness and embody the light - in the words we speak, in the choices we make, in the way we look at the stranger we pass on the street.
There's more, I'm sure - lobbying, teaching our children, teaching others, feeding the hungry and clothing the naked, something else too, something that we haven't imagined yet but when we do it will touch the whole world.
In the meantime, be the light and be the love. If every single one of us does that, it makes a difference.
