Although it seems like it was only weeks ago, here we are again full circle at Martin Luther King Day. A lot has happened in the last 12 months, and in this January alone. Let’s come together and help where we can and bring happiness to those who are still having a rough time. There are a lot of opportunities to donate food to organizations, items to animal shelters, and write cards to care homes. All are needed and all are appreciated. We are better together without hate or violence.
In school we are learning about non-violence as a powerful tool for social change, as used many centuries ago in other cultures. This is because change comes from the inside. It sits with your conscious and it comes out as a form of being. Your being is important, and you deserve recognition but sometimes change does not need force, it needs forgiving, it needs understanding. This MLK Day if we can help others then we can help ourselves. The richest people are not those with the most money, it is those who can choose what to do with the resources that they have. People are hurting, people are sad, and people are confused as this pandemic goes on. Any way we can give a helping hand in whatever shape it can be accepted, is one step closer to understanding and one way to show that change can happen even slowly if we do it together.
