A Philosophy to Live By…
You tell your children “I will always love you, there is nothing you could ever do that would make me stop loving you.” You tell them this before they know what you are saying, and you keep telling them this for as long as you can, so that no matter how old they get they cannot remember a time you have not told them.
If you do this the world will become a better place.
You then tell your family. “You are my family, and nothing you can ever do will keep me from loving you.” You tell them this because they are your family, and because it is true.
If you do this, the world will become a brighter place.
You tell your friends: “You are my friend and I love you, and nothing you could ever do will be so bad I cannot forgive it”
If you do this, the world will become more serene.
You tell your enemies that you care greatly for your children and your family. You tell them there is nothing you would not do to protect them,….nothing. You tell them that it is in their best interest to become friends.
If you do this the world is given a chance to draw breath and think.
I hope if we do this the world has a slim chance to heal wounds that have been open and bleeding for as long as there have been people.
