Here is a touch of my wisdom... to make a difference in the tapestry of life.
I salute to Micah Fletcher, Ricky John Best, and Taliesin Myriddin Namkai Meche of Portland who, together, even as strangers to each other, heroically placed their lives in jeopardy in order to protect human rights in the jaws of hate.
I honor the amazing parents of Richard Collins III who was slain at the University of Maryland and was the victim of a hate crime.
I pay reverence to all those tragic victims of hate whose precious lives are curtailed without rhyme or reason.
Today, we live in a confused human world filled with anger, aggression, hate, enmity, and many more shades and intensities of temperamental darkness. There has been a surge of sad events in our nation that boasts overall civility in comparison with the rest of the world, but seemingly falls short at the root of rationality. Day in and day out, we wake up to the confused reality of inhuman and savage forms of conduct triggered by seething vexation. This is a very disheartening and demoralizing state of affairs that we, together, are burdened with, today.
I often question as to why human beings stoop so low to commit atrocities only to demonstrate that they are emotionally impoverished. Many of them show no signs of repentance and it is a gravely disturbing picture. They, most obviously, need help because they are the products of their own conditioning—where the weight primarily rests upon the parents and immediate family who continually and collectively etch the behavioral code of the future. Innocent bystanders, as well as heroic men and women, intersect with these confused predators at inopportune moments, bringing grief to on-lookers who are imbued with traits of selfless love.
May you grow to realize that, 'the world rests in the hands of the child' who undergoes formative development through the phases of 0-6, 6-12, and 12-18 years of age. Mental attitude and intellectual aptitude have their roots embedded and anchored in the bedrock of human life. As parents, we have a responsibility to nurture the nature of human development with caring attention GROUNDED UPON ALTRUISTIC COMPASSION ALONE.
THIS IS THE ROAD TO PEACE!
Let me walk you along the path of peace and grace. Humanity cries out loud for help.
