Light a Candle

The past several days have shown the best and worst sides of humanity. No matter what, one thing is certain. We need more LOVE, not hate and division. If anything, we should come together and defend the rights of everyone.

You, nor I, will ever be able to fully understand another’s experience. However, the least we can do is try. Before you overgeneralize and condemn, think. Put yourself in someone else’s position. Many are hurting and fear what the future may bring, but I truly believe that the flame of hope burns strong.

As Eleanor Roosevelt said, “It is better to light a candle than curse the darkness.” Even if you are one person, you still have the ability to affect change. Try to understand, rather than judge. Educate yourself and raise awareness. Promote peace, not violence.

Join the likes of Gandhi and Martin Luther King Jr. Lead a compassionate revolution and light your own candle.
