About My Rose Colored Glasses: Choosing Love

Heart in Hand

A few thoughts in light of Paris, Colorado Springs, Orlando, terrorism and the outrage to come:

I was asked recently why I speak so often of fostering humanity with love and seeing the humanity in each person we encounter. The question was posed to me: “Are you so naive that you wear your rose-colored glasses and can’t see evil?” I chose not to entertain such a jaded question at the time but I will answer it now.

Au contraire. . .it is exactly because my life **has** been touched by evil that I choose love. And if I am unable to fully connect with a person, at least let me not hurt them.

We have become a society fueled by fear of one another and so many isms:

-racism
-sexism
-masochism
-classism
-sizism

Then there are the biases:

-white privilege
-religious persecution
-anti-immigration sentiment
-bias against the poor
-bias against the disabled
-stigmatizing and incarcerating the mentally ill
-persecution and murder of LGBT individuals

As a survivor of child abuse, domestic violence, and rape, I am all too aware of the evil in this world and I will fight it with every fiber of my being. Not with bias, not with hate but with love and if I reach even one person’s hardened heart, I will leave this world with a satisfied mind. Because this world needs a brand new army – the army of the kind. ‪#‎rantover‬
