There is only one race- The HUMAN race. Then why, why are we dealing with all the racism this day and age?
Everyday we are buying into the lies... Black lives matter, blue lives matter, all lives matter…. Rainbows, hearts and Target symbols, serve as a reminder that racism still exists.
And it's not just existing, but thriving, yes, today in our society! Preying off of our differences: race, sexual orientation, religion, ethnicity, gender identity, disability, looks, and sex. Keeping us busy fighting, and arguing, meanwhile- He takes another life.
There is an answer, there is hope...There is one who is able to stop racism, bigotry, hate, AND all the wars...
See the problem is, there isn't enough love in our hearts. The problem lies within all of us!
If you have to look at the color of one's skin, their sex, or their sexual preference to hire them, welcome them, to give them a scholarship, to give them a raise, or to shoot them! Then there isn't enough love in your heart!
We’ve all seen the videos, "Free Hugs!" From either freehugscampaign.org or freehugsproject.com. Where a man holds a sign saying "free hugs." It may sounds silly at first, but it's so powerful, and so profound.
Because love is the only force powerful enough to pierce the atmosphere. The only power that can overcome any, and all differences. That's why these videos of "Free Hugs" have over 100 million views!
We are all hungry for love, for change, but we don't know how to get to that place.
But first, you have to understand how we got here... How we got to this place where the “beauty” in our differences is no longer appreciated, but feared.
There is beauty in our differences!
Everyone of us has a choice. Inside each of us... There’s this dark hall- in the depths of our minds. Leading us to this door...Inside this door, is a dark room where racism is conceived and hate is birthed.
That place is FEAR.
All of it, hate, bigotry, and racism...ALL of it is birthed from that place of fear!
We fear because somewhere, inside of us, lies insecurity. We fear because change causes us to fear.
Think about it, when we talk about bigotry, we often talk in terms of fear, for example: homophobia, and xenophobia.. Are all fears! Fear is constantly telling is that our differences are too great.
Fear is corrosive!
FEAR is the opposite of love, NOT hate. Hate is just a byproduct, a result, of fear.
Fear is the true enemy! Fear is what causes fights, kills, and starts wars... Fear binds us, it disables us, and causes us to hold back our love.
When we understand that, then we can understand that fear and love are always at war with one another!
But we all have a choice, YOU have a choice...To choose racism or to choose love!
Regardless of what society, and media is telling you. Maybe it's free hugs, prayers, writing letters, leaving encouraging Post It notes around your office. Maybe it's writing thank yous, bringing food to the police at the police station or to firemen at the firestation....We have endless opportunities all around us- To choose love. Open your eyes, see a need, and fill it. That's how it starts, it starts with YOU!
Don't let fear stop you from choosing love.
Together we are strong, together we CAN.
We are one race- The HUMAN RACE.
‘But the fruit of the Spirit is love, joy, peace, patience, kindness, goodness, faithfulness, gentleness and self-control.’ Galatians 5:22-23
I'm your Mrs. International, reminding you-
TO CHOOSE LOVE,
