“The opposite of love is not hate, it’s indifference. The opposite of art is not ugliness, it’s indifference. The opposite of faith is not heresy, it’s indifference. And the opposite of life is not death, it’s indifference.”
Elie Wiesel was a survivor of the Holocaust and a recipient of the Nobel Peace Prize, so I would say he was an expert on how to save our planet. Indifference, he said, is the cause of injustice and violence.
Indifference at this time in our history is especially dangerous, and that’s why I encourage you to vote in the upcoming election — if you haven’t already (Proman and I voted by mail two weeks ago). The opposite of indifference is to care, to be involved, to make your voice known, and as insignificant as voting may seem, it’s one of the most significant, caring, and transformative actions you can take.
Make a difference in our world and in your life.
