This year, April 12th is known as National Day of Silence. This national day was arranged by students protesting against bullying and harassment of the LBGTQ community. The first ever National Day of Silence was organized by students of the University of Virginia in 1996.
This day is in honor of those who have suffered from mistreatment for their sexual orientation. Today, there are still many racist and anti-gay people in society. The fight against unjust treatment continues.
In honor of National Day of Silence, I want to plant a seed of thought in your mind about how we treat others, and why it’s so important to be kind. My intention is not to take away from LBGTQ rights in any way, but instead to focus on the importance of kindness and its impact on humanity.
Here are a few reasons why you should be kind to everyone around you:
Please be kind. We’re all in this together. We all have demons to battle, obstacles to overcome, feelings to experience, lessons to learn. The least we could do for each other on this journey called life is to be kind and patient with each other.
No one knows why we’re here, but we are. The most valuable expression on the planet we could have, in my opinion, is the love we give and the healing we provide for others’ souls.
Remember: How you treat others is a direct representation of how you feel about yourself. Your flaws and insecurities are exposed when you treat another life as being inferior to you.
All life is deserving, all life is worthy, all life is valuable.
