While many people are still struggling to find the right words for comfort following the tragic shootings in Las Vegas on Sunday night, Kelsea Ballerini found the words to eloquently express her feelings on the event and how we can all stand to be a little nicer by spreading the love.
“Still having trouble processing yesterday,” she wrote in her post. “Because it’s not the kind of hate anyone should ever be able to process, understand or accept. Felt numb, then felt scared and then just incredibly sad. But then I watched the sun come up this morning. And I was reminded that each day really is a gift. And that there is still beauty around if you look for it. And that we have the ability to make people happy. To make people feel loved. And heard. And accepted. No matter what career you have or what you believe in or what change needs to happen, we all have that power as human’s right now.
“So while I mourn the loss of the lives of our friends in Vegas, to honor them I’m going to make 58 people smile and feel seen today, I’m going to keep making and playing music like the haven it is, and I am going to challenge myself to love harder. Because right now, that’s what I can do to make the world a little happier.They deserve that. We all do.”
We couldn’t have said it better ourselves. Let’s all try to love a little harder.
