Spreading Light

We are facing some pretty stressful times. Locally, socially, and globally events filled with hate and isms occur far too much. So this is a call to the Keepers of the Light, the wellthy ones, to spread love and joy and healing on individual levels so collectively we can overwhelm the darkness. The daily tasks of keeping the light include…

1. Smiling

2. Making eye contact

3. Acts of kindness

¨ Holding a door open (within social distancing guidelines)
¨ Saying Thank you
¨ Saying Please
¨ Saying You’re welcome
¨ Being honest

4. Behaving with integrity

5. Seeking to understand the opposition

6. Seeing the person rather than skin color, culture, or religion

7. Managing self for the greater good

We have the power. We have the love. We have the light. We have the responsibility.

“Darkness cannot drive out darkness; only light can do that. Hate cannot drive out hate; only love can do that.”

—Martin Luther King, Jr.

“We may not have the power to create the world we want immediately, but we can all start working on the long term today.”

—Mark Zuckerberg, Cofounder and CEO of Facebook
