Real love is not some fluffy ideal. It’s the only power that can truly change the world.
I write these words from a place of both love and outrage. Outraged that the violence of war continues to destroy the precious lives of so many people from Gaza to the Ukraine to cities throughout the world. That innocent children, parents and families are forced to suffer such indignity, such pain and hardship. And that our governments continue to fuel this darkness with the support of our tax money, and in many cases our civilians.
But anger and outrage mixed with sadness is a force does little to alleviate the problem. Mixing Real love and compassion into the fire is our only hope. And I’m not talking about the fluffy ideal that we must all get along and love one another, however noble that may be. I’m talking about living real Love with a capital L.
