Today is Good Friday preceding Easter Sunday, following Palm Sunday, and coinciding with April Fools Day. I’m not aware of Islamic, Buddhist, or Regional Native Tribal celebrations for this weekend, so feel free to add comments addressing whatever may be taking place alongside the aforementioned Judaochristian festivities.
Take away the ideology and what is left behind is an underlying reason for people to celebrate their lives together. Whenever we promote gathering as community with a reason to bond, we move our species forward. Why do we make the excuses for every other reason to not become closer? Love is a force that enhances what it touches, yet destroys what it corrupts. Peace is finding the balance between understanding the difference.
Take the time to peer beyond the surface level shit, and search for the love and good behind those people you hold dear in your life. If you find yourself absent of such people, take a look around at the people you intervene with on a regular basis, someone matters in your life. Share that acknowledgment with them.
Be kind to others, especially the ones you know.
