Love Your Neighbor Day

I may have made that one up. Or maybe it really exists and is just on a different day. But it seems like the right message to send out at this juncture, so, love your neighbor today.
    Due to time constraints and feeling too tired to write much, I'm going to be a bit lazy this time, not writing a full post, but don't let that take away from the message here, dear readers. (I at least took the time to track down some good media for this post, if that can be permitted to assuage some my guilt at said laziness.)
   Stop being angry. Stop being vengeful. Stop being cynical. Stop being critical. Stop being resentful. Stop doing everything that hurts someone, especially if that someone is you. If everyone put a little more love out there, maybe the world wouldn't need saving all the time.
    We can't prevent these emotions all day, every day, but for a few minutes, let it all go. Need some inspiration?
    Just push play.

love it haha! it seems so cliche when you try to tell people to emulate these ideas but I don't care I love hearing other people say it and I will keep saying it forever -- "let it be"

also there is a cocacola commercial that is like grand theft auto - and the criminal character goes into a convenience store buys a coke and suddenly he's the Mother Teressa of the ghetto and the song that plays is "give a little love and it all comes back to you, you're gonna be remembered for the things that you say and do"

I remember this commercial! One of the many reasons I love Coke more than Pepsi is because they have better commercials. I love the line too, "give a little love".
I know it is cliche writing stuff like this, but I feel like it needs to be said every now and again. But, I won't dodge part of my reason for doing it--I wrote it last night and Tuesdays being my long, sucky days, I was too tired to come up with anything more substantial. But I do hope the videos say what I was too tired to say. Peace, love and bean sprouts, man :)
