The rampant senseless violence in our whacked out world today overwhelms my heart. My prayers are with the people of El Paso, TX and Dayton, OH and everyone suffering from violence everywhere. As posted here recently (#LOVEFORVB Love for Va. Beach) it’s hard to know what to do when hate and violence decimate lives and communities.
Keep in mind that hope is a noun and a verb.
To hope and to bring hope to others.
“Ordinary acts of love and hope point to the extraordinary promise that every human life is of inestimable value.” Archbishop Desmond Tutu
“I don’t think of all the misery, but of the beauty that still remains.” Anne Frank
“Hope is being able to see that there is light despite all the darkness.” Archbishop Desmond Tutu
Hope is a verb that moves us (and others) toward the Light. Love is a verb that dissipates hate. Let’s keep hoping and sharing the kind of Love that enlightens the darkness of hate.
grace, peace & Hope
“Love casts out fear.” Dorothy Day
