Hatred is not innate. It's a learned behavior. 🙏🏽💓✨ My friend @devibrown

that really struck a chord with me: "It's the silence that ruins friendships/relationships. It's impossible to "love" people and stay silent in the face of their pain. Are you an ally?" May this be a reminder to us that to be silent is to be comfortable in privilege. If we don't stand up for what is right, nothing will ever change. The pain, the killings, and the injustice will continue. I know it can be scary, but standing up for what you believe is important. Just as the choices we make for ourselves are important, the choices we make as a collective whole for our community are as well. ✨ Despite me having been away from the states for some time now, I want to express my sadness and utter disappointment in regards to recent events. How people can hate another based upon the color of their race or religion... is beyond me. Lives don't need to be lost for us to find peace. And it's not just in America. It's everywhere. Even in the Middle East, everyone is fighting, and I've been witnessing it daily. Muslims fight each other, Christians fight Jews, and so forth. I am so incredibly moved by my friend @michaelfranti
's recent song "Love will find a way." Please go listen to it on his page. It's our responsibility to create a harmonious planet—to unite with compassion for one another. I choose peace. I choose compassion. I choose love. Everyday. May we make a stand. 🙏🏽💓✨
This little boy (about 4 years old) ran up to me and wanted to take a picture. His family nearby was Muslim, and was almost scared for him to come talk to me. Of course I welcomed him with a big hug! He's cuter than a baby apple. 🍎☺️ May we all celebrate our childlike intuition to love others. Hate isn't innate, it's taught. Love everyone without condition.
