Ah, kindness. What a simple way to tell another struggling soul that there is love to be found in this world.A. A. MALEE
Well, I didn’t want to write this post, but seeing everything that has been happening in the world, I feel obliged to do it.
I feel the pain, the struggles people of colour have to go through everyday. And it is not only them, it’s every immigrant who decided to live in a different country from their own. They will never belong. There will always be a reluctance of acceptance, discrimination, violence.
And now all the attention is towards a single group of ethnicity, like we forgot all the atrocities committed against women, against children and different ethnic groups. When are we going to realize we are in all together and responding violence with violence makes the matters worse.
We seem to forget about kindness and it’s odd how some people seem obliviant to the inequalities around them and support a cause that doesn’t relate to them directly. A wise man once said, if you want to change the world, start with yourself. Be kinder, help people around you, be the change you want to see in the world. And that kindness might influence someone to do the same and soon you can make your community better and kinder.
We don’t need more protests, we need kinder people. We need people to not cross the street if you speak a different language from their own, we need people who embrace the difference in others and try to learn from them.
What this world really needs is more love, understanding and acknowledging.
