What are we to think following any tragedy, is it anger or forgiveness?
Here is what I think…
We should have an awareness of humanity, that we are all created equal. That within each of us we have the ability to hurt, the compassion to care, and the power to forgive one another.
Will discussions of Gun Control, finger pointing toward the Tea Party and the Occupy Movement, and Political Gamesmanship arise in the aftermath of yet another high profile crime?
Absolutely, but as freedom loving Americans, we must hold true to the fact that we are all equal in Gods eyes.
We know not who may be the next victim, or the next perpetrator.
We know not if a simple, "Hello, can I give you a hug", said to a stranger, will be the key to saving another persons’ life.
What we do as individuals today, tomorrow, next week or on Election Day will not change what we know to be true.
The color of our skin, the life we choose to live or any other differences we have does not change the fact that we are all human.
We all live, we all die, and we all bleed red; all of us are collectively humanity; humanity is equal!
