You look into the sky and you see dreams.
You look on the Internet and you see nightmares.
But where is reality? Where is the truth? Where is the justice?
How can you look into the sky and be overwhelmed by the most beautiful sunset without remembering the awful things happening in the world?
How can you look on the Internet and see the cruel, barbaric behavior of the human race without remembering the good in the world?
This world is not either or. It's not night and day, not yes or no. Definitely not black or white. This world is both, dusk and dawn, maybe, and grey. Most of all grey.
It would be easier to understand this world if everyday was gloomy and dark. Horrible storms that match the actions of those around us. But when you look into the evening sky and see swirls of reds, oranges, and yellows, you can't help but appreciate the beauty. You can't help but wonder if God did it on purpose?
After a storm, He often leaves a rainbow. After destruction, He rebuilds. After hate, He brings love.
He gives us beautiful endings to our day after horrors have taken place to remind us of hope. With God, nothing is impossible. With God, the reality is clear, the truth is revealed, the justice is met.
This world will meet peace because it has met chaos and destruction.
With every good thing comes a bad thing. With every bad thing comes a good thing. The first will be last and the last with be first. The blacks with be white and the whites will be black. The world is balanced with grey.
Never lose hope that better is to come and never be naïve enough to believe that nothing bad will ever happen. When an act of terrorism arises, lend a hand to help. Look towards God and see the beautiful masterpiece he leaves in the sky. When an act of kindness appears, remember why it is there. Remember that this temporary band-aid will lead you to greater and better things. This world will heal even if it is a grey one.
