Dust to Diamond: a Message for a World Full of Divisions, Inequalities and Hurt

We live in a time of global tribulation where humanity is being swallowed up by economic inequalities, a politics of resentment and a zeitgeist of separatism. Add on top of this a pandemic that has taken our sense of community—the one thing that mends broken spirits—and isolated us behind masks and social distancing, we are withdrawing into ourselves while clinging to our phones. Our abilities to connect in person being curbed by the fear of infections and the risks posed by a clandestine plague, we self-medicate by binging on Facebook, Instagram and Twitter. We are staying connected virtually while we lose connections with friends, family and neighbors in reality.


{As much as I wanted to engage in combat and spit back the vitriol that was coming my way, I finally learned through hard knocks to not take the bait each time someone throws pebbles from the sideline—I just bated my breath and refused to act in kind.}

I've been getting a fair dose of this lately. There's always someone who wants to hate or negate me and or the agenda here. Always seemingly wanting to change the context of my comments and or the agenda while never taking the time to respectfully inform themselves of the group or learning about me before attacking. I learned some time ago to choose my fights, attempting to conduct them respectfully so not to be pulled into the useless rhetoric cycle we see so often.
