My monthly contribution to the Writers Vineyard is less about writing and more about a simple lesson we already know well: More love, less hate.
Here’s an excerpt:
As I listened to news coverage of the bombings at the Boston Marathon, and the investigation and pursuit of suspects that followed, forgiveness wasn’t uppermost in my mind. I felt the frustration of lack of comprehension and the anger of helplessness. And the exasperation brought about by yet another tragedy visibly dissolving into a venue for social divisiveness and political posturing.
People, I wanted to shout, the answer is simple. More love, less hate. That’s it. That’s all we need to know. More love, less hate.
