Photo/Writing Prompt: Look Up
For every human life lost to senseless violence recently. Hatred will always breed hatred. Love will always breed love. You and I are the same, my friend. We are each a person made in the image of God, created with dignity and inherent value. I am not worth more than you. You are not worth more than me. We are the same, you and me. Let us not hang our heads. Let us look up, into each other ‘s eyes that we may never deny the humanity we see there. Let us look up, where hope lives. Let us look up and see ourselves in each other.
