Put a little love in your heart is an old 8Os or 90s song that we had to sing for one of my school choir concerts and it’s all hippie and stuff. Let’s just say I hated it. But thinking about it, it really is something our generation needs to learn to do; put a little love in our hearts.
These days people don’t care much about others and could step on your heart like they’re casually walking on grass but that isn’t right. There’s always so much more to a person and there’s no need to put them down for who they are.
Just take a moment to think about this alright? The boy you laugh at for crying, his mom– the only person he had left is gone. The girl you call fat is starving herself just to ‘fit in’. And that ‘nerd’ you’re always tripping in the hallway, she’s already abused enough at home.
So tell me please, why do we do these things to people, why do we bully them ? Is it simply because everyone is doing it or because you want to have ‘fun’ ? Well how would you feel if roles were reversed and it was you being pushed down the stairs? Horrible I’m sure. Just like they do.
If hurting someone makes you feel good about yourself the I feel sorry for you. There’s a thing called Human Rights and bullying is actually a violation of this. Human Rights means that everyone should be treated equally regardless of who they are or where they’ve come from. It’s when all humans should be respected since birth. And not just because we have to but because it’s the right thing to do!!
I’m pretty sure majority of us have been bullied but it doesn’t need to end there. If only we could come together and all love each other for what we truly are, the world could be a better place.
So let me challenge you all this week and hopefully you could apply it your daily lives. Give that boy a friend, that ‘nerd’ a hand, even just a single complement to that girl to make her smile and maybe put just a little bit of love in your heart.
