Lately…here in our own country…it has occurred to me 

no matter where I look…hate is everywhere I see…


It’s nothing new…for hating others has been part of our history

ask Native Americans, 





the L..G..B..and T.


To show you how easy it is for hate to take hold…

to succeed…to triumph…to win

The moment I say I hate all the haters…

Is the moment I let hate in.


But don’t be fooled by all the hate…for as we ride this carousel

as we travel up and down and round and round…there is much love…as well.


If we can look past all the hate (it’s not easy…I understand)

We will see people reaching out, hugging, kissing…holding hands.


We see random acts of kindness…acts of affection and generosity

We see a diverse amount of people embracing diversity.


So when you start to believe that love is dead…and you begin to mourn

Remember: “I Love You” are the first words spoken…when a baby has been born.


Then think of all the times you say “I Love You” every day

and why do you surmise

are “I Love You” the last words uttered before a person dies?


We begin and end our life with “I Love You” which only proves once more

that hate may win its share of battles…


but love will win the war.
