Spread A Little Love

Today I am thankful. I’m thankful for the country I live in, for those who serve and served in the military, and for my freedom.  I’m thankful for the ability to write and say what I want because I know the sacrifices made for me to do so.  I’m thankful for the roof over my head, for a husband who supports me, and for a family who encourages me to follow my dreams.  But I’m also heartbroken for our nation.

My heart breaks knowing Americans are willing to tear a nation apart over a single election. My heart breaks for the people who fear for their lives as they know them because of the new presidential-elect.  My heart breaks thinking about how much hate is being spread on a daily basis in this country and across the world.

I’m begging you to be the change you want to see in the world.  The people have a say in what will occur over the next four years, but they have to voice their opinion patiently and respectfully.  Putting others down for their opinions just creates more bitterness and hardened hearts, and that is far from what I want for you.  I don’t want to sugar-coat the situation by any means.  I just want to ask you, my friends, to work with me in creating a better, safer community.

It’s time for us to accept the fact that the results are in, and start working TOGETHER to make America a new kind of nation.  One full of respect, kindness, and love for one another. So I challenge you to spread a little happy, do a random act of kindness, even just smile at someone and ask how their day is going.  The world needs us to be different, they need us to be a listening ear in a time where they don’t think their voices are being heard.

Please just spread a little love.  Everybody really needs it.

  1. Well said. I hate to see the protests and crimes that are being committed because they don’t agree with the results of fair national election. Not everyone agrees with the results but now is the time to pull together, pray for our leaders, and yes I am key to acting and thinking in such a way that will bring a peaceful and productive four years.

  2. So glad you brought this up. I love my country because we have the freedom for an education, that represents diversity. All we can do is continue to show love and kindness and compassion for the next four years. People need to stop being sore losers over the results of an election. That is crazy and this country needs to realize that hate and violence only leads to more hate and violence. I don’t think our country is going to be 100% doomed just because of who our next president is going to be. Spread love instead of hate and kindness instead of violence

  3. Thank you for this post. I lived the military life for 40+ years, spoke for government officials on military families and soldiers, and my husband just retired from the military after 23 years. It’s not an easy life and lately many people are ungrateful for such service (see my blog http://www.midlifeinspirations.com) for our military story), so we are blessed to have people like you who still care!
