Wonderful Wednesday #18 [Love Trumps Hate]

I tend to write down a list, in my notes app, of all the Wonderful things that happen to me over the week, so that when it comes to typing it all up, I don’t forget anything. It seemed so futile, however, talking about my own personal wonderful moments, when there have been so many terrible injustices going on in the world. It seems to desperately hopeless and horrifying that this could happen, yet despite this, there have been wonderful things going on in the world, acts of solidarity, in response to such atrocities. For this week then, I wanted to rally the gang and highlight the wonderful things that have been happening, across the globe, proving that love indeed trumps hate.

While it may seem like it is helpless, and you may want to avoid reading the news, it is vital that we remain hopeful. A long four years lies ahead, so it is incredibly important that we do not become apathetic and that we continue to carry on the conversation, no matter how difficult. By focusing on these wonderful things by people all across the globe, we recognise that there is hope.

My horror and despair is a small price to pay for the privilege I hold, and I don’t want to ever forget that.

These ‘Wonderful Wednesdays’ you have seen scattered all over the bloggersphere have been inspired by the lovely Sally Tangle. If you want to read more then check out JoMichelle, Kate, Cat, Sam, ElKerri and Carina’s blogs and let us keep this cycle of happiness and good intentions spinning!

  • Yes yes yes yes YES!! Can’t believe I missed the Dutch off my list, as a nation they’ve been tip top. Canada too.
    Thank you for continuing to talk about it. I couldn’t agree more that apathy is the worst possible reaction, I don’t begrudge those wanting to escape but I will absolutely always use my voice as loud and as often as I can when faced with such hate.
    Have a great rest of the week.
