What brought down the Confederate flag? Riots? Shooting black people? Shooting cops? Speeches, sermons, slogans? Some people may find this hard to admit; that flag came down when the victim’s families forgave the killer. This incredible act unleashed the power of love.
Love can turn people heads around; it can drive them to achieve the impossible. So when we lose all hope, when we sense the end is near, what can we do to save ourselves?
The answer hides in plain sight. It abides in every human heart. No one has to be told about it. It has been pounded into our heads our entire lives.
It’s the power of love – when we have the courage to use it.
