Like many of you, I spent time last week calling or emailing my Senators. I also called or emailed the White House, and other parts of the government. I called and emailed to insist that the sadistic and cowardly child abuse at our boarder with Mexico stop.
Suddenly, hate speech, racism, and hateful, rage filled people dominate the nation’s attention. Truly, people who hate are strong evidence that what our thoughts dwell on is who we become. If we fill our minds with hate, sooner or later we’ll act out of hate. Likewise, if we ignore the suffering that’s all around us, or if we blame the suffering for their condition, we become cognitively callow and our hearts grow callused. Yet we can vow to dwell on good intentions. We can take action.
