The discord that’s popping up like plants in the desert is a reaction to criminally unkind actions. Perhaps it’s a sign that enough is enough…and not simply when it comes to police misconduct. Maybe we’ll respond the same way when rhetoric is based on hostility instead of hope. On dislike instead of reconciliation. Or when it’s inspired by people who could use a lot more kindness of the heart. Each of these are branches of the same poisonous tree. Why don’t we channel our outrage to stunt its growth? Peacefully, and with purpose instead of blind anger. Pay it forward and pass it on.
