I had an interesting conversation with some friends the other day and one of the topics that got me thinking was about the negativity in our world, our media and even in our social media. Several people including, I, proudly proclaimed that we did not watch the news or follow much media coverage as our way of not supporting or partaking in all the negativity.

However, the more I thought about it, my thoughts shifted. If we sit back and don’t consume, but silently offer nothing of balance, aren’t we still supporting those who look to divide and create controversy at every turn?

What if we decide to use our voices to share hope, kindness, gratitude and love? Could we spark the change in how we communicate and treat one another?
