61/365: Darkness

61/365: Darkness — The world we live in is full of darkness. We are surrounded by suffering, pain and hate. In my city over the last week there has been a murder of a forty four year old mother, the body of a man has been found in the canal, and another inside a house on a busy street. There have been groups of grown men fighting in the street. My heart goes out to all those families whose loved ones have been hurt or taken from them. You only have to look around the city or town you live to see darkness. You only have to open the newspaper or switch on the news channel to see how much darkness there is in the world. Martin Luther King, junior famously said Darkness cannot drive out darkness; only light can do that. Hate cannot drive out hate; only love can do that. My prayer is that people shine a light in the darkness and share love instead of hate.
