In the wake of the terrorist attacks in Paris, my heart is heavy and my mind is baffled. Watching in real time as terror unfolds in Pray for Parisone of the world’s most beautiful and scenic cities, I couldn’t help but wonder if there is a possibility of hope on the horizon. It seems there is a marked increase in the amount of violent attacks and hatred spewed around the world nowadays.

From Paris to Beirut, to Baghdad and Mizzou – hatred in all forms need to be eradicated. Everyone should feel comfortable and safe to live their lives. Everyone should feel welcomed and loved. No matter the form of attack, hatred is hatred. It breeds itself. We need to push it out by showing love for one another and showing ourselves selfless.

It’s beyond time for a change of heart.

Our thoughts and prayers are with those affected by the Paris, Beirut, and Baghdad attacks. Our prayers are with the people around the world that live with marginalization, microaggressions, and direct attacks.

We give our prayers.

Let’s spread love.

Love always,
