I threw my TV set out the window, so I could finally listen to the silence once again. The constant bombardment of racism, biased reporting and general negativity was unbearable.

An Eckhart Tolle quote comes to mind when he said that your job is not to save the world, but instead bring peace through a peaceful character and awareness whenever a conflict arises in your close environment. I can’t remember the exact words but I believe I captured the essence of his quote.
