The world can feel like a pretty corrupt place. It seems no matter where you get the news, it is a reminder that there are bad people all around.
It’s hard to stay level headed, let alone sane.
Sometimes it takes stepping away from the news and just avoiding the internet altogether.
Then there are times when a poem, email forward, video or meme remind you that the good in the world far outweighs the bad.
Acts of kindness. Respect for fellow human beings. Hope for the future. And most of all love very much exist.
Love is patient, love is kind. It does not envy, it does not boast, it is not proud. It does not dishonor others, it is not self-seeking, it is not easily angered, it keeps no record of wrongs. Love does not delight in evil but rejoices with the truth. It always protects, always trusts, always hopes, always perseveres. Love never fails.
The only way to really assure yourself that the world isn’t full of corrupt jerks is, to not be one yourself.
