Have you noticed there’s so much strife and unease all around us in the world today?
People in so many parts of the world seem intent on killing each other and wiping out civilisations which have taken centuries to grow and develop.
And locally too, there seems to be an ongoing unrest with pockets of violence and in-fighting.
As much as we would like to change what’s happening globally, to me there seems to be a general sense of despondency and hopelessness. Rather than taking a stand, it’s seems so much easier to vent our fury and our prejudices on social media sites!
Whilst most of us cannot do much about global affairs, or even have the desire to do anything beyond fulfilling our own daily challenges of survival, we can certainly make a difference in our local communities.
What I strongly believe is that more than ever before today, we all need to take a stand in our own communities and see how we can be united and bring people together.
And this brings me nicely to the theme of my post today:-).
