There is a lot of unnecessary pain in the world. I’m not just talking about war and violence, but pain we cause others and ourselves as well.
We make meaningless things important. We hurt others and ourselves giving too much power to things that have no true value.
I think about this as I look at the boy in this picture. His house had been bombed in a civil war. While his parents and two siblings are still alive they are now homeless. What this boy and his family must face on a daily basis makes me ashamed of all I have and how much power I give to meaningless things.
A simple and powerful message.
