  1. I don’t think we have to save everyone or fix people or things. We can be responsible by looking inward instead of always searching for someone to blame. We can be responsible by truly, truly trying to acknowledge the issues and just accept them as they are without constantly fighting over who is right or wrong. We can be responsible by trying to make choices and act in a way that is bigger than us, in a way that sees the good in others. But that takes a lot of self awareness but man is it a beautiful and liberating place to be when you begin to discover it.
  2. Well I won’t speak for your reality but I hope it’s not gone forever I see people coming together all the time. It might not be all at once. It might not be on gun violence. It might not be the way you or I might totally envision But I’ve seen people of all walks of life come together to help others. I see the good in others daily and believe everyone is trying to do their best by what they know
  3. Your statements and responses to my comments are very black and white. Your blanket statements are grouping people and not acknowledging individuals. “All media outlets are basically leftist. single parent homes are causing gun violence?” I’d love to have a conversation but not under those conditions.
  4. I hear you and assumed I understood what the root cause is from your perspective and you had great suggestions of how to invite change. I agree with you on working harder to be better individuals because at the end of it all, we can’t control anything but ourselves— no matter how much harder you love your spouse, teach your family, etc etc. we can’t control others.
  5. Thanks for sharing. I’m really quite moderate in this particular discussion and don’t know enough about it from either perspective and appreciate you explaining.
  6. I believe we prepare for the future by living in the present. Use the future to set goals but live life in the present and connect to others
  7. It will always be that way if you believe that. I don’t believe it will always be this way. I am someone that does not fit into US or THEM and am so happy to have a longer conversation with anyone, no matter what they believe, to understand them. The questjon Of “do we need to find someone to blame” was rhetorical and your statement is mostly true, especially with this issue having a lot of complex juices. . But not all of Society looks for blame, I do not look for blame. I truly look for understanding and I take action to the best I know to create change. An individual can create change.
  8. It might be a waste from your perspective, but you aren’t them. Instead of assuming they are just roaming and not being spiritually fed, you Could talk to them. There are many ways to be spiritually fed. My foow yo question Does them roaming the halls have anything to do with your personal Spirituality? Why are you worried about it being a waste to them? Why worry about it at all? It could be a door to grow your own love by talking to them. Im writing from a very objective mind and not attacking you. I wish he internet could convey my tone of voice haha

  13. Help me understand why it’s only leftists? I love a lot of what you’re saying because you are calling to action the need for people to start taking responsibility. My question is, do we need to find blame for this or the root cause? Many of your statements are personal beliefs and not fact. Do we need to find a single source to blame, or can we just accept that it’s happening? i totally believe the more people who feel like they can make a change, then change will happen. Having open and understanding conversations is what will create healthy environments. It’s not single parent homes who are causing gun violence. It’s not rampant sex parties (which by the way there has been an overall decrease in young adults being sexually active highly correlated with the increasing access to porn). It’s not the dissolve of families. It doesn’t matter what the root issue is because knowing the root issue doesn’t make the change. Society has to take responsibility as a whole. We have stop creating US verses THEM with every political and social issue. an aweosme eyeopeinig book to read would be Braving the wilderness by Brene Brown.
  14. I think we surrender ourselves everyday by acknowledging and accepting where we are in the present. Guilt and shame are from the past, fear and anxiety are from the future. We can seek to improve ourselves and we can learn from the past. But we are enough in the present when we surrender the past and the future thinking.
