Where is the Love?

by Leticia Seviraneta

For some of us, life is not a fairy tale. It may be a daily story of survival. How people work hard to have something to eat. Just something.. anything that can be eaten for that day. How people may find it difficult to dream.. since what they see and feel are just endless calamity. There are always people who need a loving hands to reach and spread the warmth of what we called L O V E.

I remember the words which were spoken by Christine Caine about the human trafficking which she put effort on to save many people who are trapped in slavery. She said that there was one woman who had been a prostitute and when she came to save her, the woman simply asked, "Why don't you come sooner?" Chris said that this question should probably be answered for each of us as well. "Why don't we come sooner?" "What other things that more important than this and keep us busy?"

I believe that everyone of us has different role and calling in this life. Yet I believe that it is everyone's role to be the agent of love in order to make difference in this world no matter how small it would be. There is a seed of greatness and uniqueness in each of us longing to be released. Don't let it becomes dormant for the rest of our lives. We are created simply to help others too. Your contribution will mean a lot to these unfortunate people. This is not merely about the human trafficking, it could be also the poverty and injustice.

So.. the million dollars question might be, "What can I do?" And the answer probably will simply .. "pursue to do good" Big things always started from little things. Pursue to do little kindness daily to anybody. The word 'pursue' emphasizes on our active action to seek and find a need then try to fulfill it :) When this has become our habit, then we can dream something bigger and try to expand our reach to meet bigger need somewhere out there. Imagine.. what a wonderful world it would be if each of us do that?

In order to let love flows naturally from you, we may need to have conviction that.. we ARE love. Love is hidden potential of every human. It means that every one CAN love when they WANT to. Some poets may stated that love hurts, love is pain. Yet the truth is love definately HEALS. Do not fear to release love ... ever. Let's meet the need of those people who may wonder "Where is the Love?" and answer them, "Hey.. It is in US. Let us show you NOW =D"
