Everything we do has a ripple effect.
For making things good.
For creating harm.
For building someone up or
crushing them like an insignificant bug.
Which side of history (even your tiny corner of history) do you want to be on?
What is your legacy?
Hopefully my legacy is one of hope
There have been many times I’ve wanted to say stop this week.
To world events,
Mostly to the atrocities and hate we seem to be heaping on each other.
Just stop…… please
Poisonous gas Intentionally killing humans,
The perpetrators of this atrocity deserve the unspeakable
Have we learned nothing?
Never look away.
Never explain away.
Never excuse hate.
Never permit bias, bigotry or ignorance to go unnoticed.
Fight the good fight
There was a wonderful Ted Talk about the difference between practicing and creating art.
So often we forget that there are specific skills we need to learn and master.
New connections between our brain, eyes, and hands that need to be made. All of which takes patience
The upside is we get to make better art and you can’t worry about the state of the nation and skill build at the same time.
Here’s my opinion,
If you actually want to discuss politics then you need to be polite.
When you post crap like “all Muslim people are jihadists” I know you’re foolish and there’s no reason to bother with a discussion.
If I were to make derogatory comments about the 45 president you would not take my arguments seriously.
Both sides have many ideals in common, so let’s find common ground for the good of the whole country
