Perhaps I didn't fully understand the meaning of this quote when I first heard it spoken, but I liked the images that went through my mind. I pictured the bullies falling to the ground, incapable of causing my friend any more harm simply because he was kind to them. After getting discouraged over all of the anger and hate I see spread through electronic media, the questions still nag at me. Can that really happen? Can we really disarm angry mobs through benevolence? I think we can, but it will take some work.
This blog is an attempt to kill the negative, divisive tone that spreads too quickly across social media, news outlets, talk radio, and other outlets. Please join me in celebrating the best in people. Let's kill the anger.
