Sometimes it is very discouraging to live from day to day with fear.I feel that the world is like a pot of water that is starting to boil and the funny thing is you don’t know where the next bubble is going to be!
The same thing with the violent acts, we don’t know when and where they are going to happen.How sad the world is,how cheap life has become!There is no respect for life on this planet,all kinds of life, it’s like we have more hate than love.
My prayers are with the people of France tonight!
My heart is hurting for Nice!
All lives matter!
Humans have suffered through the centuries in the hands of humans!
I feel that the black people of this planet have suffered so much more,are we surprised that they protest,how long is someone going to take abuse and never complain?
Women have been victims of abuse through the centuries,and even today in many countries the horrible treatment towards women and children continues.As if it was a mistake that they are born women!
Children are abducted every day,taken away from their families .
Animals are abused,is something not abused?
What we see happening today,is the result of eternal abuse and disrespect of human life!Continue in that direction and catastrophe will follow,it is inevitable!
All creation is hurting!
My heart is bleeding!
Because there is no solution that humans can provide!
