I will fight!

I am not going anywhere…unless I want too! I will fight you! But I will fight you in a way you can not comprehend or compete. Yes we know you exist and we see the rising of your hate but I see something bigger. I see the rising up of love from all around the world. You are in your self impossed cage and the only reason we hear you is because you are loud…Oh yes you are so loud and of course we hear you. We hear you yelling from your cage of hate. That is why people think you are so big. They think you are so big because your voice is so loud…oh but if they could see you. When they actually see you they will see what I see. I see how small you are. I see you crying in fear of a changing world. I even see the diversity amongst you in your cages. I see the poor ones, the rich ones, the short ones and the tall ones but you all are all the same. Oops I almost forgot…I also see the so-called powerful ones. They think they are powerful but really they aren’t and they know it. They are loud because they know they are small. Small minded, scared and loud. You know what I also see. I see people acknowledging that you exist but choosing to ignore you and move on with their lives. I see people choosing to love one another regardless of race color or creed. That really gets to you doesn’t it! I don’t hate you. Actually I feel sorry for you. Ok, well maybe I do hate you a little but I don’t like the way that feels so I choose better feelings like compassion for the ignorant and disdane (not hate) for the willfully oblivious.
I will fight you by loving my neighbor. I will fight you by not sharing your hate or rhetoric. I will fight you by voting. Good people will fight you by building better schools in underserved neighborhoods. Loving people will fight you by inviting all people into their places of worship and looking past their fear of the “other.” Many people will fight you by starting businesses and building wealth and moving into your neighborhood. Yes, we know you will eventually move to the moutains or something like that just to get away from us but guess what, we will have the resourses to move there too if we choose to. We will fight you by having great careers and building a great life. We will fight you by working our minimum wage jobs with a smile on our face even though we may be tired. We will fight you by praying for a better future for our kids even though we may not know how we are going to make it another day. We will fight you by raising kids that are loving and compassionate and they will go to school with your kids. Your kids will see that the lies you taught them through the goodness displayed by our kids and they will momentarily hate you for it. Then they will learn that hatred is too draining. Your kids will be impressed with our kids’ love and compassion and some of those kids will fall in love with each other and build futures together (you are not invited to the wedding unless you change). We will fight by getting and education and going back to help others get an education. We will fight by volunteering to serve others. We will fight with science, prayer, respect and loyalty to mankind. We will fight with love. Love really is the answer and nothing can stand against it…Love wins in the end.
