Darkness cannot drive out darkness; only light can do that. Hate cannot drive out hate; only love can do that.
I feel like these are dark times.
I find myself sat at the computer for hours trying to find the right words to write. I get angry and upset and just leave it for another day.
Perhaps my blog isn’t the right space for this? What type of place do I want this to be for a reader and most of all myself?
What I’ve had courage enough to write so far is that I’ve never been directly affected by the events that have happened in the UK over the last few months but that doesn’t mean it hurts any less.
Westminster Bridge. Manchester Arena. London Bridge. Borough Market. Grenfell Tower. How many more times will I wake up in tears?
There are terrible events happening all over the world and when those in power say they will protect you, it’s hard to carry on as normal and stay silent.
Love & light will carry us forward and conquer all, I know that much but we must rise up out of the darkness.
I know writing this won’t change things overnight; it will take time and lots of it. I just hope the world doesn’t go mad before we get there.
