Hello, Sunday.

This has been a horrible week. Our country is a mess and it’s playing out for all of us, and for the world, to see (as if 2016 hasn’t given everyone enough cringeworthy material). We are divided, with a gap so wide that it’s hard to imagine that we’ll ever truly be one again. This election, both the duration and the result, brought out so much vitriol and hate: hate for our government, for the candidates that we chose; hate for our countrymen, and our differences; hate for even our friends and family and loved ones.  I’m guilty of it myself and it’s taken all the gumption in me to try and see the light at the end of the tunnel, praying and hoping with all my heart that it’s actually there.

No one person can heal the divide. It will take all of us, each individual, because though we all live in the same country, we also all live in communities. The whole is nothing but the sum of its parts, and if we can each pick ourselves up, dust ourselves off and help our neighbors do the same, it’s the only way that we’re going to get through this as a United States.  

I tried my darndest to stay off the net, so I have only this to offer; one of my favorites from some of my favorites, and I hope that it resets your mindsets as it has mine.  It starts with one, and it starts with love.

 

There’s nothing you can do that can’t be done.
Nothing you can sing that can’t be sung.
Nothing you can say, but you can learn
How to play the game
It’s easy.
Nothing you can make that can’t be made.
No one you can save that can’t be saved.
Nothing you can do, but you can learn
How to be you in time
It’s easy.
All you need is love, all you need is love,
All you need is love, love. Love is all you need.
Love, love, love, love, love, love, love, love, love.
All you need is love, all you need is love,
All you need is love, love. Love is all you need.
There’s nothing you can know that isn’t known.
Nothing you can see that isn’t shown.
There’s nowhere you can be that isn’t where
You’re meant to be
It’s easy.
All you need is love, all you need is love,
All you need is love, love. Love is all you need.
All you need is love. 
All you need is love. 
All you need is love, love. Love is all you need.
Love is all you need.
Love is all you need
-The Beatles-
 
(And dancing bears because right now, we could all really use some dancing bears)
 
Let’s do it better next week, shall we?
