Sunday Inspiration: We are made for goodness

we are made for goodness

“We are made for goodness.

We are made for love.

We are made for friendliness.

We are made for togetherness.

We are made for all of the beautiful things that you and I know.

We are made to tell the world that there are no outsiders.

All are welcome: black, white, red, yellow, rich, poor, educated, not educated, male, female, gay, straight, all, all, all.

We all belong to this family, this human family, God’s family.”

Archbishop Desmond Tutu

    I despair sometimes that so many people can’t absorb this basic truth. We are one. DNA proves this., and history displays where inhumanity to others fails everyone.
    Emilie, thanks for bringing this lesson home to us again.

    How true. Especially with this sick man in the white house who has caused so much havoc. Looking forward to peace and the world getting back to normal and COVID coming under control.

    There should be no room for the hatred and violence that happened this week. Unfortunately, more is planned for the next week and a half. It won’t end there—not until lies are no longer accepted as truths. Flags are being flown at half staff today over the US Capitol and in other areas—but not over the White House in honor of the DC officer killed by protesters on Wednesday. How can the US accept this?

    This has been a week that will live in infamy. I have been so careful in the past few months to not repeat the old adage that it can’t get any worse than it is because no sooner said that it seems to get worse.
    I guess the only thing we can continue to do is isolate and try to not get steamed up over the news as it unfolds.
    Other than being bored and that I can remedy by firing up the sewing machine, my life is pretty much stay away from others and keep breathing. No one of us is better than any of us.

    Thank you for posting this, Emilie. It is so true. We are all equal. Great man, Archbishop Desmond Tutu.
