So if you feel overwhelmed with the world, remember to LOVE. Show other people the kindness you want to feel. Connect with someone else. Chances are good that if you feel lonely, or weary, or afraid, someone else you know does too. You don't have to be alone. Reach out to someone.
Be one of those helpers that Fred Rogers looked for. Help a friend, help a stranger, volunteer for a cause that is near and dear to you. The One Orlando Alliance Acts of Love and Kindness campaign is a really good reminder to Act. Love. Give. The world we want to live in starts with us. Be good to each other.
The world can seem like it's full of horrible things and people, and sure there are plenty of horrible things happening, but look for the hope. Look for the faith. Look for the LOVE. It's there, if you look hard enough. Let LOVE be the reason you get up every day, let it fuel you.
If you are feeling helpless, please tell someone. Your life matters and is worth living.
