Are you watching the news? Hearing about turmoil in the world, the US, neighboring states, even your hometown?
Nature-made floods, earthquakes, and tornadoes tug at our hearts. Man-made bombings, shootings, even political battles assault our senses, cause us to choose sides.
What kind of world are we living in?
In the words of Mary C. Curtis, speaking about Charlotte, NC, in her interview on PBS Newshour (September 22, 2016), we are living in “an integrated city where we can live a segregated life.”
Are we comfortably complacent?
A movement, begun generations ago, needs to continue, in the form of generous random deeds, quiet rescues, and momentous demonstrations.
But, I hear you. What can one person, perhaps hesitant, uncertain, or fearful, do?
What if…we use words, the best tools we have, to change the man-made chaos.
Of this I am certain, “Our lives begin to end the day we become silent about things that matter.” –Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr.
I’d love for you to join me as we work together to write a World Recipe.
The ingredients are kind words, deeds and uplifting examples. I’ll add your comments to tweets, (join me @roxiewriter) and we can share our recipe with others there as well as here.
What a kind world we live in____________________
