Eleven people shot and killed and multiple others wounded in a workplace mass shooting by a longstanding male employee of a Virginia Beach public utilities office. This is the 151st mass shooting in the U.S. in 2019. And it’s only May.💔 L.R. #VirginiaBeachshooting … Yet another day filled with tragic news. From mass shootings to natural disasters to man-made humanitarian disasters, our world is reeling from crisis after crisis after crisis. It’s easy to feel overwhelmed. It’s easy to feel helpless. It’s easy to comfort ourselves with simply sending thoughts and prayers, believing we can do no more. But the reality is that our thoughts and prayers need to strap on a sturdy pair of work boots and pull on a well-worn pair of work gloves to be effective. Our world needs us on our feet, not on our knees. Prayer is only as powerful as the faith we use to walk out into the world and take action. Whether it’s feeding the hungry or healing the sick or answering phones or raising funds or campaigning for change or running for office, everyone can do something. Let’s all stand up and walk out of our doors and reach out to humanity with humanity. We are the answer we’ve been waiting for.💞 L.R.Knost ————————————————————— Please respect the work of authors, photographers, and artists.
