No Hashtags Required

Let’s Be One Again!

How sad is it that society now has to make hashtags to let the world know we’re not okay with murder. How sad is it that our country thinks violence makes their voice heard.

If you want a change in this world you have to start with yourself.

You have to start being open minded, and most importantly you have to open your heart. We should all be proud of who we are, and we should be proud of our community, and our country.

The normal of the past is no more, and I’m sorry but we all need to just accept it.

The hate needs to stop, the pointing fingers needs to stop. One bad cop doesn’t make all cops bad. One bad black person doesn’t make them all bad.One racist white person doesn’t make all white people racist.

But, people stereotype everything now.

What makes this all worse is that the media eats it up like pudding! They show all the stories on the many shootings going on and it just glorifies the assumption that if you use violence the world is going to hear what you have to say.

Then you have all these arguments going around social media, “#bluelivesmatter, #blacklivesmatter, #allpeoplematter,” and so on.

COME ON! Do we all seriously need a huge slap in the face? Of course all lives matter! I love and respect the cops in this world. I love and accept the many races, religions, and sexualities that fill our world. I respect our soldiers, and the families that sacrifice their loved ones. I respect women, AND men. We all should!

Where has the respect gone?

I don’t want to see hashtags filling my newsfeed.

I want to see a white man holding open the door for a black man. I want to see a teenager helping their elders. I want to see two men holding hands in the park without people staring with disgust. I want to see a women getting equal pay. I want to see a five year old boy who loves his dolls and the color pink not getting singled out. I want so many things for this world.

Do you?

Would you hold my hand?
