What's Important

Because the news I see is depressing.....here's pics to remind me what's truly important in my life, right now and always.  I hate no one and do my best to love all regardless of party affiliations or color or size or age or religion or any of that nonsensical labeling of our differences.  .....for me and really I think most....we need and want love and the most basic things that equal a full heart, a comfortable home that provides our necessities, and a daily purpose that leads us right back to that full heart and home.  .....The conversation of one most tragic event should not be talked about so much as to believe this was a nation simmering.  Actually the nation at large is full of loving and kind people...I feel certain most people are good and would like to get their work done and get back to those they care about and to the things they enjoy.  Pockets of hate will exist in this world no matter what actions we take.  I value those that are so passionate about the current news but I truly believe the hateful people causing the tragedies simply lack those basics needs of love and home.  I'm not so smart as to know the solution of spreading love versus hate but I think it has something to do with starting at home and modeling to all you meet what is the difference in right and wrong, what is good and kind, what is helpful and loving to your neighbor and the strangers you pass daily.  I think it starts with empathy....understanding and listening to the other before you seek to be understood.  Blame and pointing and being the one that knows better simply leads to two more differences to argue about....how about looking for a win-win.  For today my win-win is I understand people are upset and I pray they can find some peace because they surely have work to be done that has nothing to do with the 24/7 news going on...they want to get home or take care of their home, eat something, love on their people and so forth......
