My heart goes out to the victims families in #Paris, in #Lebanon, in #Syria, , #Pakistan , #Behrain, and in so many other countries in this sad time. Many of us on this side of the world are most familiar with Paris, and we hurt for them following this attack 11-13-2015. Many more in other countries (such as in Lebanon on 11-12-15) have been killed by terrorists, so many more have become refugees. Huge numbers of refugees are turned away daily from borders around the world; desperate for a place to lay down and be safe.
I have tried hard to keep on adding positive compassionate loving energy into this world, but beyond that I really cannot say I have done anything to change the tide or help. So hard to not feel helpless, and so many in the world seem to want to blame and hate all those who are different. So many Muslims have been suffering at the hands of a few, just as those same few brought great pain to Paris.
At the same time, there is that underlying fear… what if it comes to us, and who can we trust anymore? Mother taught me that everyone has a spark of the Divine with them, just that some people forget and we can help them remember they are good people, by being kind to them.
These are but a few of the Flags of countries currently suffering.
