Frankly, I am disheartened by the animosity that I observe on a daily basis on social media. A divide almost as great as that during the Civil War has separated friends from other friends and family members from other family members. People are obsessed with getting their points across at the expense of insulting and hurting others. It breaks my heart to see the animosity in all forms of media.
As far as humanity goes, we can take a lesson from the creatures above. They could easily be filled with hatred or fear of each other. Instead, they have looked past their differences to find qualities that they love in each other.
Look at these pictures carefully and ask yourself: if they can find common ground, shouldn't human beings at least learn how to be civil and get along?
The next time you start to say or write something hateful or that criticizes another, stop and think. How would you feel if you were the subject of so much hatred? Yes, yes, I get that we all have different opinions and have a right to express them... but do so in a civil, logical, unemotional manner. Stop the rudeness, the inconsideration, and trying to make yourself feel better by lashing out at others.
Til Next Time,
