There is too much horror in our world. Too much pain. Too much suffering. And too much hatred.

I have to believe in love.

I have to believe that somehow there is more good than evil. That love will conquer all. That even as crazy people do what I consider to be heinous things, there is space for healing, for hope, and for love.

I know what it’s like to know that you have the TRUTH, and to be willing to live and die for that. I know how intoxicating that is, and how it leads to wrong, wrong choices.

I also know, at least for me, that there is no TRUTH, and especially no truth that professes violence and death.

I have to believe that love can conquer all. That we need to fight for justice and acceptance and humanity.

But that love can – and will – conquer all.

I’d love to hear your thoughts, and please share this post with others if it resonates with you!
