Prayers for Everyone

I look at the news and I can’t understand.
I refresh Twitter and I keep shaking my head.
It doesn’t make sense.
I can’t understand.
How does this keep happening?
How can there be that much hate?
How do we stop it?
What can we do?
We can’t keep posting “Prayers for ______” and then walk away.
It’s something.
But it’s not enough.
One person isn’t, but many people are.
One person doesn’t have all the answers.
Maybe there’s more than one answer.
Maybe the answers are different than what I think they should be.
Maybe it’s as important to listen as it is to know.
Listen to all sides, about many issues.
Talk without yelling.
Then do.
Do something.
Try something.
And pray.
Prayers for Las Vegas.
Prayers for Edmonton.
Prayers for Paris.
Prayers for Columbine.
Prayers for Spain.
Prayers for Moncton.
Prayers for Orlando.
Prayers for Sandy Hook.
Prayers for everyone.
