Turn on the news. Open the paper. We see it every day and as history repeats itself, so does the brokenness and pain.
Violence, war, and refugees. Skittles, vitriol, and isolationism. Repeat.
Racism, division, and hate. Take a knee, shoot a man, and riot. Repeat.
Over crowded jails, underfunded schools, and broken communities. Corporate greed, disconnected parents, and political self-interest. Repeat.
What are we doing? Can’t we break the cycle? Can’t we change history? Isn’t there a better option?
Love, listen, and learn. Weep with the hurting, embrace the broken, love our brothers and sisters. Repeat.
