Why can’t we always come together, like in Dallas?
I don’t understand people sometimes, why must it always take a tragedy to bring people together?
We all bleed the same color, we all want the best for our children and our families, we want to be good people. We are all doing the same things in life, no matter what economic status we are at, what religion, what sexual preference we have, what color we are, deep inside we all have a heart and we all bleed red.
So then why is it, we can’t come together every day and not just when a tragedy happens?
I remember when hurricane Andrew came to south Florida, everyone helped their neighbors, we went from house to house helping, we shared food, we shared gas, we got up on each others roofs, we came together.
It brought us closer and it formed friendships that have lasted years, in those weeks afterwards.
911 not only brought all New Yorkers together but all of the United States together and an us against them mentality went into play and suddenly we were all on the same side.
When the shootings in Orlando occured, we forget about the fact that people who were shot were gay, but that mother’s, father’s, sister’s and brother’s lost someome they loved to someone who was so closed mined that’s all he saw was their sexual preference and because he didn’t agree with their lifestyles, they needed to die.
And now in Dallas, people of all color, all religions, of all sexual preferences are coming together to help each other out, to reach out and help a neighbor, a stranger, because really people, that is who we are, deep in our core, we are giving, loving, human beings with huge compassionate hearts.
We are seeing it again, the true spirit of human beings, you wouldn’t let someone die in front of you because of their sexual preference or the color of the their skin.
No, during trying times, the best of us comes out, people become hero’s, but why? Why can’t we be like that every day and not just when a tragedy strikes?
That is a question every human being should be asking themselves right now….if we can help one another, if we can save another person, if we can love one another enough to go out of our way to do this, then why can’t we have this mentality on a day-to-day basis?
We can, because this is who we were made to be, just like children, they aren’t born with hate or racism, they love one another….we are taught these things… we need to change our way of thinking, we need to go back to being children, our truest self and realize we are all one.
So today my friends remember, if we can come together during a tragedy, we can come together every day, it’s up to you to make that change and as I always say in every blog…
