Yet more in common!

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.

#moreincommon

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. 😀

  1. Kindness goes a long way in this world. It is one of the most important things we can teach our children.We do change the world one person at a time; we must model respect for others, and have compassion for all people. This change is always ongoing. Every act of kindness counts. We see this happening everywhere around us…people helping other people all around the globe. And it is a far-reaching phenomena; often, one act of kindness begets another, and then, another.It always begins with us.
