And suddenly, I was having a moment. Even tucked away in the four corporate walls of my office, I was suddenly overwhelmed with the world we live in. The Universe aligned for a moment and I had a million thoughts enter my mind at once. The strongest of those thoughts was simple. We, all of us, all living creatures on this planet, we need each other. We need to LOVE each other. And SUPPORT each other. And most importantly...we need to HELP each other. We spend so much time judging and hating each other that we leave so little room for much else. I think that the majority of people are innately good...but maybe we don't try hard enough to share that good with others. We get so wrapped up in our own daily stresses. The smallest of gestures could mean so much to another living thing. And in this link from a friend who means so much to me, there were 21 examples of people who looked outside of themselves for the greater good.
I urge you to take a moment. Listen to the words of the song and scroll through the 21 pictures on this website. I am not delusional. This quasi-hippie doesn't expect everyone to suddenly get along, but maybe it will make you stop and think, as it did for me, that maybe we can try harder to be better. Let's LOVE each other more. Let's SUPPORT each other more. And for goodness sakes, let's HELP each other more.
