Horrible Humans

Yesterday was a tough day, wasn't it?  It reminds me (again) that the world is full of pretty horrible humans.  I say humans instead of people, because people wouldn't injure and kill other people.  People understand each and every one of us is an important part of a family, a circle of friends, a thriving system. People don't treat other people like disposable pawns or faceless, nameless victims.  People treat other people like they matter.

I don't think these horrible humans are in the majority, no way.  But I do think these horrible humans have the power to freak us out on a national level.  Fear is such a powerful tool and its use was in full effect yesterday.  It breaks my heart to remember the happenings in Boston are daily occurrences in some parts of the world.  But yesterday we heard about it because fear was in our neck of the woods.

The knee-jerk response is to fight back, isn't it?  That's not going to work, though.  That is what horrible humans want.  We need to reach out to one another and remember we are people.  We need to remember that horrible humans were people once, too.  They probably have people who love and care about them.  It this an immediate solution?  Of course not, but I do know it is the change we need to see in the world.
