Approach conflict with love

opinion

In favor of firearms versus against them; Trump versus Clinton; logic versus morality… we live in a society where opposition is encouraged and prevalent.
We have become caught up in making sure our beliefs on each issue are known, and there is nothing wrong with that–but as a society we have become too focused on the violence and chaos of society and the reasons behind them instead of promoting the idea of loving one another.
We recognize that life is filled with chaos and unfortunate events and these things cannot be stopped with love, but we, The Ranger staff, would like to take the time to remind you of the importance of loving one another.
Whether or not you are in support of firearms or completely against them; for Trump, Clinton or neither, it’s undeniable that we focus too much on opposing the other side, becoming consumed with hate and violence, screaming so our voices will be heard. We focus on the black and white sides of things both literally and figuratively.
South African anti-apartheid revolutionary, politician and philanthropist Nelson Mandela once said, “No one is born hating another person because of the color of his skin, or his background or his religion. People must learn to hate, and if they can learn to hate, they can be taught to love, for love comes more naturally to the human heart than its opposite.”
We live in a world that has become consumed with hate, opposing sides and the notion that this is how it should be. We are here to take a stand and change that belief. We must not sit idly and accept that our world is ruled by hate and violence. We must spread the importance of loving one another in spite of our differences.
The more we love one another and preach tolerance and acceptance, the more our environment will become a kinder place filled with less panic and anxiety, with less aggression and desire to lash out at the opposing side. We encourage you to go out and spread kindness instead of abhorrence. Spread love.
