Illuminate the Darkness

Light from light-8485

Everywhere there are shadows, yet the very nature of light is to defy our sense of what is possible and to illuminate the darkness… We must be the light and, through our words and deeds, penetrate those dark places, spreading compassion, practicing empathy, sharing ideas that make us stronger, casting out those ideas that make us smaller, embracing people for their differences, changing minds, and driving out darkness. This is our Virginia. Those strangers among us who would intractably cling to darkness and hate, you demean us…leave your hatred behind and let the light into your souls so that you may join the Human race…It’s about time.
