A Colorless World

Even as spring has come, and life is flourishing once again, it’s hard to ignore that life is very fragile and that countless lives both around us, and abroad, are suffering and dying. Sometimes it really feels like a bleak, colorless world.

Please take a moment to help ease the suffering of others, whether it’s helping a little earthworm stuck on the road, or helping those abroad through special causes. If you can, pray for the suffering dead too, however you see fit,1 that they may find happiness in the life to come.

Everything we do helps put a little color back into the world. Be a light unto others, and even to yourself. You can do it; we can do it, together.

P.S. This post was inspired by this tweet. Warning, this is really hard to read, and has been on my mind since.

P.P.S. Take a moment to give your loved ones an extra hug. 🥰
