Last night I had a terrorizing nightmare that I was running in a big crowd screaming and trying to get away from someone. It spooked me so badly that I couldn’t go back to sleep after I woke from it.
This morning I hear the tragic news regarding the mass shooting in Las Vegas and cannot shake this internal sickness I feel. What is wrong in our beautiful world? Why is there so much hatred and anger towards others?
Why are some of our powerful leaders threatening each other through social media and not setting an example of kindness for people everywhere? How is this allowed to continue so that it creates followers and even more controversy among two different ways of thinking?
Why do I feel like I am back in elementary school with how this is being handled?
Why are the weather patterns destroying so many cities and leaving thousands of people homeless and devastated? Is the great power above trying to tell us something? Are we literally killing our planet due to global warming and negative or racist attitudes?
I am not religious but I am definitely a spiritual person and practice being kind to others on a daily basis. I have always believed in the goodness of human beings but I am quickly becoming discouraged by the horror that one person can orchestrate such a horrific act as this.
Help me to understand how a mind can even work this way? How can someone justify that there is any validity to their premeditated plan of killing innocent people?
What is wrong with us that we can’t stop this fucking madness? We all have blood running through our veins but we can’t seem to open our eyes and see that we are “all one” as human beings!
We ALL have to do something every single day to change this “divide and conquer” attitude that is happening in so many countries around the world!
We need to wake up and come together more than ever right now. It shouldn’t take a devastating catastrophe to bring us closer and act humane towards each other. It should be “a given” because we are grateful to be a part of this beautiful planet that we are so blessed to experience.
I am heart broken today but I will continue to do my part in being a good person and helping others as much as I possibly can. I will always remain compassionate and I will not stop trying to make a difference in this world.
Yes, I could stay silent and not draw attention to this madman and his obvious need for power, but I won’t. We need to talk about change and uniting as a nation, not bury our heads in the sand. Someone is trying to tell us something and it is about time we listened!
We literally need to make love and stop with all this war against others. <3
