I absolutely could not believe the hate filled words people were using on Twitter, Facebook and other social media yesterday. My heart was heavy as I returned home last night.
Once home, I flipped open Facebook again to answer some notifications and there it was; not anger nor hate, just a message of love and hope from a man, his wife and his five children.
It was the spark I needed. Hope restored. Truth. And it only took one stranger to give me that hope.
We may not have all the answers, but if we have hope in our hearts and move forward with kindness for each other, maybe we can change things.
It only takes one person.
Today his July 8th Facebook video alone has had 8,784,472 views.
That’s a lot of hope.
