Loving One Another

Love Unconditionally


Day 11 in my A-Z series was a day when 11 people were ruthlessly gunned down while in the “Tree of Life Synagogue” in Pittsburgh. My #11 word was Kindness.

How far from that concept was the mad gunman!

And now, on Day 12 of “What Makes Me Happy?” I am having trouble with happiness. I am wondering how Kindness fits into this equation of mass shooting. Surely I must find a way to exhibit kindness as a response to hate. Returning hate will not accomplish anything positive. I must concentrate on Day #12: “L” = Love.

Unlock the love in your heart! Reach out in love. Pray for the Jewish community. Pray for the fallen and their friends/family. Pray for the gunman and his family. Pray for all those who are prisoners of fear and hate.

Listen to the beautiful prayer attached here sung on 9-11 by Cantor Ari Schwartz. Pray for understanding, for peace, for a cessation of hate, a cessation of hateful rhetoric, and the unity of our nation – one nation under God. Listen to this beautiful Jewish prayer for the fallen and ask God to help us know how to be part of the solution, not part of the problem. Pray for unconditional love.
