After a tumultuous week for the world I could quite easily have chosen despair as my word of the week but instead I’m choosing hope.It’s probably obvious that I purposely steer away from blogging about current affairs and my view and opinions about things like politics and religion. I have no desire to write controversial content but I will say that many events this year have just made me feel sad and worried for the future of our society.
I started thinking about how I could make a difference in the world, I’m only one person and I’m never going to be able to change the world. What I can do is hope and as they say be the change that I want to see.
My children will grow up in a loving, accepting and tolerant house. They will learn about diversity and equality and why it is so important for the whole world.
They will learn that they can fall in love with whoever they choose and make friends regardless of gender, colour or creed.
I hope that we as parents will be a good example to them. I hope they will always choose love over hate and kindness over cruelty.
I’m linking up with Jocelyn from The Reading Residence for Word of the Week.
