I’m tired. I’m tired of the anger, the arguments, and the mistrust. I’ve been around long enough to remember protests about Vietnam, the women’s movement, and the disabilitiy rights movement. I’m sure there must have been plenty of conflict with any topic then, but there was also a feeling of coming together, compromise, and moving on.
The fear mongering going on in the media, the blame being flung about, is making this the toughest time ever to be an American.
We need to put away our phones and connect with people face to face, pretty sure some of the social media comments wouldn’t happen if you were looking your neighbor in the face. We need to let go of selfishness, and choose kindness first. Make eye contact. Smile. Wave. Open doors for people, wait patiently, be understanding. Imagine what your day would be like if everyone put kindness first.
“I want to thank you for allowing me to speak again on my commitment to life and spreading the message and the word about how we must make the world accessible. The world, not just one particular country or city or area, but the entire world, accessible and available for every single one with any disability. If you’re commitment is not there, it is nonforgiving, as far as I’m concerned. So let’s handle it.” ~ Stevie Wonder
