Here in The United States, as I have said before, we are not so United any longer. President Donald Trump is our President. And there are two firm camps on his policies- Love him or hate him. There is absolutely no middle ground any longer. When there is no middle ground there is no unification. There is a casm of differences.
One of the issues we have really been struggling with is the hospitality of others. Google defines Hospitality as:
the friendly and generous reception and entertainment of guests, visitors, or strangers.
synonyms: friendliness, hospitableness, warm reception, welcome, helpfulness, neighborliness, warmth, kindness, congeniality, geniality, cordiality, courtesy, amenability, generosity, entertainment, catering, food
We now live in a society, if not the world that is letting fear win. Fear for your lives, we are told!! They are here to kill you and encamp you! They are here to take away your rights. To that, I respond, oh stop!!
Are there bad people in the world? Yes. Are there bad people in positions of power that can do this, and want to do this? Sure. I am sure they exist. We wouldn’t have dictators without that mentality.
But, there are many people in positions of power that have people’s best interests at heart. Do not lose heart, my friends! No one will come knocking on every door of the world tomorrow wanting to kill us all! Complete and total aniahlation of the planet is not bound to happen from any single person in power.
So, as individuals what can we do? Be hospitable. Take in those in need. Give to the poor. If you have more than enough, share. Be kind. Show love. I promise you, even if we don’t all do these things, love still wins.
