Why Are We Spreading More Hate?

Why Are We Spreading More Hate? I woke up this morning to see on the news, all the protests that are going on across this country right now, and it makes me sad. In a country with so much hate being spread, why are we not looking for ways to spread more LOVE, COMPASSION, FAITH, ACCEPTANCE, and KINDNESS. Isn’t that what we all want?

No? Then CHANGE it!
