Earlier this month one of this nation’s worst tragedies occurred less than 20 miles away in downtown Orlando. It is with our greatest sympathies that we extend our hearts and thoughts out to the innocent victims of the Pulse Nightclub shooting, a senseless act of terrorism fueled by radical religious fanaticism.
There is much that needs to be changed as a country to prevent this from happening again, but we cannot forget the changes that each one of us can make to create a better future. Embody the principals that drive the growth of the community, be considerate to your neighbors and remind individuals who may have forgotten what the value of kindness is. With an overwhelming amount of hate and negativity present in the media and day-to-day it is important for each person to stand out as a beacon of love, acceptance and positivity for those around them.
Together we can overcome the entities that seek to tear us apart, together we can bridge the divide between compassion and community, and together we can be the change that we want to see.
