Hatred or Love

 "The only person who suffers when you squirrel away all that hate is you." 
Jodi Picoult.   

Jodi got it wrong. Last night two mass shootings happened in the United States 6 days after an earlier one in California.  Innocent people shot, killed and injured all because of someone's squirreled away hate. 

The 21 year old's postings on his social media was full of hate towards those different than himself.  And in less than 24 hours, it happened again in Ohio. 

Hate is toxic. Destructive. It's a terrible thing that not only hurts the individual, but when fueled, ends up destroying others.  

My heart goes out to all the families and individuals in El Paso and Dayton.  And I pray 'never again.'  No more hate. No more shootings. No more innocent killed or terrorized. No more living in fear. 

Nelson Mandela said, "No one is born hating another person. People must learn to hate, and if they can learn to hate, they can be taught to love, for love comes more naturally to the human heart than its opposite.” 

"Red, brown, yellow black and white - 
All are precious in His sight."
