Anger Vs Love

A friend sent this to me on WhatsApp and I thought of sharing with you.

While a man was polishing his new car, his 6 year old son picked up a stone and scratched lines on the side of the car. In anger, the man took the child’s hand and hit it many times; not realising he was using a wrench. At the hospital, the child lost all his fingers due to multiple fractures. When the child saw his father, with painful eyes he asked, ‘Dad when will my fingers grow back?’ The man was so hurt and speechless; he went back to his car and kicked it a lot of times, devastated by his own actions. Sitting in front of that car he looked at the scratches. The child had written LOVE YOU DAD. The next day that man committed suicide.

Anger and Love have no limits. Let’s choose the latter to have a beautiful, lovely life. Things are to be used and people are to be loved. But the problem today is that people are used and things are loved.

Building Bridges

What is better than bringing two worlds together,
Bringing life and earth over a body of water?

What is better than true friendship
When it blesses all with companionship?

What is better than the scent of the rain
When it brings the reign of droughts to an end?

What is better than the smiles of loved ones
When all times, good or sad, brings satisfaction?

What is better than love in your eyes
When it can bring us together?

Bridges serves people and communities
Once we walk through it, we connect two worlds and their aspirations

When we stay connected to this circle and bridge
Love enhances our compassion for others
If things fail to come together lightly
We may have forgotten that we belong to each other,
So think of building more bridges than walls,
For all dreams depends on a bridge or another
