3 New Hugs (3 new church friends)
I guess lately I have been a little disenchanted with people. Presidential elections tend to do that for me. We begin to see some of the worst in people at a time when the country should be rallying together to find a way to create a better tomorrow. Instead, there are a lot of negative words spoken and anger being shared. The country becomes more divided rather than united. I can honestly tell you that I would hands down vote for the candidate that did something to turn this around. The candidate that began talking about what they would like to see in the future of the country rather than the faults of their opponent. I know I am not alone in saying that it can all get so overwhelming especially when you are not sure who to trust. At times I wonder why I even bother voting. A fellow blogger at Diary of a Documentary who has been entrenched in some of the atrocities of other countries reminded me of why it matters in this post. So, while I am not happy with our current candidates, I will vote for the person that I feel can best represent this country. I will also continue to live my life and encourage others to live in a way that promotes unity. These are things that I can do. And, for those times that I wonder if I alone can make a difference I will remember Rosa Parks, Martin Luther King Jr, Mother Teresa and those countless others that did.
In the meantime, I have learned that one of the friends of my blog has hugged his first stranger. And 2 ladies have decided to attempt an International Random Hug Day. Please like their page, share it with everyone you know and on November 16, let’s go out and hug the world!
Please accept this blog as my virtual hug to you.
