As I sit here and sort through the thoughts in my head, pertaining to the hurt and hate in the world, I can’t help but feel emotional and afraid.
Often than not, as individual families, we get really caught up in what’s just happening with our own, in our own world. It becomes easier to shut out the terrible things happening around us, and we become our own prisoners, in our own homes, in our own minds and we forget how much everyone else matters.
“No one is born hating another person because of the color of his skin or his background or his religion…” – Barack Obama, twitter – @BarackObama
“I am afraid.”
I am afraid of how much our world is vastly deteriorating, with so much hate, and selfishness.
I am afraid of how our children will grow-up in a world, we’re purposely killing off.
I am afraid of how our children are being filled with hate, and discrimination, and close-minded ideas, because these same kids will co-exist in their future, only to relive the same in history.
I am afraid of the unsettling feeling I have being out and about with my children, because there is so many evil individuals out there, who prefer to hurt others.
I am afraid to live, because my one day will come, and I don’t want to leave my children alone. Alone in a world like this.
It is so easy to say be kind, so much harder to do, for some.
It is so easy to say be good, so much harder to do, for some.
It is so easy to say be helpful, so much harder to do, for some.
The problem is not that it’s hard, but rather that people have conditions, and expectations to get in return what they put out.
The problem is not that it’s hard, but rather that people are selfish with their own “success” first, rather than everyone succeeding together.
The problem is not that it’s hard, but it’s that no one wants to be on the same level as everyone else.
The problem is not that it’s hard, but because we as humans are egotistical, and conceited.
The problem is not that it’s hard, but because NO ONE WANTS TO TRY.
My Open Letter To My Children
I know the world feels like it’s fallen apart. What we’ve left you with seem so hard to fix. I know it seems what you’re left with is with how terrible humans before you have been. I know it seems like we didn’t care enough to think about how your world would be, after we are gone.
I know it seems like we’ve rooted hate in all of you. I know it seems we’ve taken advantage of nature, and left you with it’s pain.
If there is anything I know deep down in my heart is that for every heart that keeps its purity in good, you can rebuild.
You can make a difference, bigger than you ever think you can.
One person, with kindness and love, will transcends in others, as long as you believe always, no matter the circumstance, no matter the failed attempts, there is good in everyone, some just did a very good job shielding it with evil, so that they can always keep a spark of good to continue to fuel them through this series of possession by evil in their hearts. Extend your hand for others, but be conscious of others who take advantage. Give first, always. Do not expect things in return, for it’s better to give than to get. No matter the measurement of success you may attain, nothing feels greater than to give joy to others.
Choose love, choose kindness, choose care, choose acceptance of others, choose understanding before judgement, choose intolerance for hate.
Always keep yourselves safe, but in a way that keeps others safe as well. Always keep each other safe, always fight for what’s true and right in your heart. Do not let anyone’s negative and false views influence your thoughts, keep your heart and mind open, and learn from everything. Keep your heart free of hate, your consciousness clean, and always give love, above all else.
It may seem a tiring road, to have to thread to sift through the bad, to find the good. But just like everything we’re blessed to have in life, there’s always a lesson to learn, and that lesson to be shared. It is always hard at first, but for every try chips away at that and eventually gets to its root and in it is the purest form you can influence.
BE KIND, BE GOOD, GIVE LOVE, ALWAYS!

I love your thoughts here. Love have different forms. When you post your photo including your babies, I missed my mom suddenly.
Beautiful, powerful and emotional post. You highlighted important qualities and things to teach to our children to make the world a better place.
this is beautiful and so important!
OH, my sweet mama friend, this is such a beautiful and true post. All we can do as mamas is continue to TEACH and DEMONSTRATE kindness, love, and tolerance to our children.
These are important qualities to teach to our children to make the world a better place.
The world can be so ugly and I fear for my children growing up and seeing it all. I want to keep them innocent and keep them from it, but I know eventually they will see and be exposed.

Thank you for writing such a powerful & emotional piece. As a mother, it is so encouraging knowing I am raising the next generation & that we get to make them strong, understanding, appreciative people. Great post Mama!
I wish the world was a kinder place. I wish it was as easy as plastering “be kind” to remind everyone to be nicer to each other. Unfortunately, not everyone is inherently good and it’s heartbreaking. This reminds me of an event recently in Baltimore- where the gangs agreed to take the weekend off from violence, I think it was two people were still killed. It’s outrageous to me that we need to tell people “do not kill each other.” The color of one’s skin will be wiped away in the after life and it matters no more now. I wish these tragedies weren’t a thing. I wish people would worry more about their insides than their outsides. Hugs. Great post!

It is SOOOO important to teach our children the basic human values of being good and kind to others, and loving our neighbors/treating others as we’d like to! Those who take their children to church (as I do) are, I hope, getting to teach them these values first and foremost as followers of Jesus; those who don’t (like my husband, who is an atheist) are, I hope (like he is consciously doing), teaching children that this is how we should treat others because it’s the right thing to do. It doesn’t matter what your belief system/framework through which you view the world, this is a set of basic human values on which I like to think we can ALL agree!
