This post from @drcarolineleaf is so on point! It is not that people doubt the power of prayer, instead, it's the knowledge that we can pray all day but if we don't take action nothing changes! .
Regrann from @drcarolineleaf - This is too accurate, and too sad. I believe in the power of prayer and the power of our thoughts BUT faith without works is dead! We have to do more than just pray. We have to look for those individuals in our community who are struggling, those people who show signs of mental anguish or instability and pain, and help them! Reach out to them in love! Too often we are quick to judge or fear the things, or the people, we do not understand. When we see someone who is acting “odd” or is “different” we need to love them, not judge them. .
I strongly believe the answer to this increase in school shootings lies in how we as a community help those who are hurting and those who are different. This is more than JUST a gun issue. This more than JUST a mental health issue. So I charge all of you today, and everyday, to look for those who are hurting, for those who are different, and HELP them. Do something! Show them love. .
Maybe it’s the child who is being bullied. Or that person who has only known hate and abuse. When you love someone, you help change the wiring in their brains in a positive direction, and you help heal them, mentally and physically! .
