“Bad news travels at the speed of light; good news travels like molasses.” Tracy Morgan
This may sound reckless and without care but in fact, nothing could be further from the truth.
I have close friends tell me when something horrific happens, such as the Las Vegas shootings. I contacted my friend that lives in Vegas and then proceeded to pray for those who are effected. The family members, the injured, the people that lost a loved one, the police, the paramedics, the innocent folks that bore witness, consolers, firefighters, doctors, and for the family of the man who did such an unimaginable dreadful act. Sorrow and much love for all who are involved. It is easy for me to feel deeply into the hearts of those effected.
It has been my personal choice to stay away from the news and focus on what is positive, this is why. When the news hit some time ago all about the failure in our economy, the woes, and troubles of “the recession”. I turned the news off and never looked back. I was learning about the power of positive words and the laws of manifestation. All of the news did was hit my fear button. I started repeating every day “I am blessed, I am abundant I can help others” That was my Mantra. Sounds right for the sexlovemantra girl…
Since that time many news stories have hit and I have tuned in. I have watched presidential debates, frightful floods and hurricanes. However, for the most part I keep the news off.
Blame is easy, hate may even seem like a choice.
Rebuilding, loving, assisting in ways that may help is what we are called into do. To participate in a loving ways will always serve those in need. I try to thank police officers for their service. To thank anyone who career is based upon security , healing, and service.
Donating blood, wherever you live. Red Cross is helping victims of earthquake, tornadoes, floods, and the shooting just this morning in Vegas; www.redcross.org. Organize something in your town that can be an outreach for those in desperate need. You can donate to Volunteers of Medicine in Southern Nevada; https://www.vmsn.org.
Some people hate that I don’t watch the news. They think I will not be able to hold an intelligent conversation at a dinner party. I say be a helpful part of the community however it is for you.
From my heart to yours…
My Mantra: “We are a fierce country that comes together in love”
