I’ll never understand how one can kill another living being.
With all the violence happening recently and in the past (Alton Sterling, Louisiana, Orlando, France, 911 and the list seems endless), one must question does anyone value life?
The lives lost that don’t make the news from child abuse, gang shootings, sex trafficking, dog fighting, child labor and the many other dark acts of the souless should not exist. BUT, they do.
How does one lose compassion or never have it?
Tragedies and loss could be the reason for the loss of compassion, but I feel it’s a choice the person has made to have no compassion and choose to hate, to harm and to not value life.
I’ve had tragedy and loss. I could have chosen a very different and dark life, drug addiction, suicide, victim, etc. I understand the pain from tragedy and loss. But, I never allowed myself to lose compassion.
What will it take to change the part of the world that is void of compassion?
Us, who value life and whose hearts are not closed to love, to being kind, open to understanding and want change, we will need to infect compassion into the compassionless world.
