Today marks the 3-year anniversary of the brutal murder of the Member of Parliament, Jo Cox, by someone who was offended by her views. You can read my original post from back then, which includes a lovely poem about diversity, here.
Let’s not despair at the gladiatorial style politics displayed by many of our world leaders; instead, let’s give hope to others by our example of understanding and compassion.
Let’s not look for differences to be suspicious about; rather, let’s seek out what we have in common and celebrate that!
Let’s never doubt that the ordinary man and woman can make a difference. If we choose to change the way we relate to every person we meet in person, see on television or read about in the media, we can effect great change. For we are all interrelated on this third rock from the sun and every thought, word and action affects those around us. Let’s make positive choices therefore to always see that we have #moreincommon.
Be the change you want to see in the world.🌿 Mahatma Gandhi
Much love, Anita. 😀
