There are thousands of mothers, fathers, sisters and children crying for peace and justice as we witness the world becoming more and more violent and oppressive toward the innocent. The string of attacks that took place recently throughout the world is a call to every person to restore the love and peace that once made us human.
We must understand that there are two types of spiritual forces that make our world what it is today. One of the two forces is the light force. The other is the dark force. Light represents everything that is love, compassion and justice. Darkness represents everything that is lack thereof.
I am but one spec of sand in a vast dessert that needs to be watered. Our land is becoming dry because we are forgetting the meaning of love and compassion.
For those of us who truly love God, we must recognize that simply loving God is not enough. We must act to better the communities we live in by seeking to restore peace. We must act to create a future we want to see for others. We must be loving and compassionate towards each other.
