We are celebrating Black History month. I feel proud to live in a country that celebrates the successes of each race and ethnic background. Every year, through social media, I find out something new about the innovations that were created by African Americans (AA). I think that is absolutely wonderful! However, I also see resentment coming from AA to White Americans (WA) and Hispanics. From WA to AA and Hispanics, and the inverse. So, basically I see a lot of successes in all 3 races that history has proven, but somehow there is still so much resentment.
The world is at war. Everyone finds a reason to hate another human being, country, organization, etc. There are so many things that need our attention. Instead we focus our energy on destruction and chaos.
I am not a perfect human being by any extent of the word. I am a fighter by many definitions. But I cannot understand why people do not focus all of their energy to make this a better place to live. Instead, people think that by causing more chaos they will make a difference.
Martin Luther King, Jr. said it best “Darkness cannot drive out darkness: only light can do that. Hate cannot drive out hate: only love can do that.” Let’s listen to this great man that fought so hard to have equality, freedom and peace.
