Learn to see the beautiful
In sensitive times like this, it can be confusing what to write about. I hear about great migrations due to war and other sadder stories. But times have always been sensitive. In my own home, there is a child who misses her parents every single day because they chose to work away from home. There is also unreported animal cruelty when one of the cats died because a careless driver ran over it while it was sleeping. However, we cannot settle for sad stories because we need to always look for the good side of things. If we don't, then there would be no reason to even write this.
But where do we see the good side of things? We see them in little fingers turning little red flowers into something else. We see them in adorable little cats who crave for nothing but food and the feel of you. We see them in green bushes that sprout everywhere despite not having enough rain. We see them in sweet homemade puddings you share with family in the afternoons. We see them in innocent children who knows nothing about the wars of the world but only in loving you.
In any case, we must always learn to see the beautiful. Wars and struggles eventually end but the sight of beautiful things don't.
