#LoveoverFear #BeWoW–Writer’s Quote Wednesday

On Monday, the four men behind weekly Generation Y Not videos shown on YouTube, staged a demonstration of love and solidarity in a Montreal subway station.  Derin from Turkey was their cameraman and the other three propped up placards, held hands, and wore T-shirts identifying them as friends, brothers, and roommates, from Paris, New York City, and Egypt.  Their messages were:

Love over Fear

They cannot separate us.

Here is their video:

Love over fear is a powerful message and directly confronts what terrorists aim to do.   Focusing on love and resisting fear, we refuse rejection of others based on suspected ethnicity or religion; we refuse to hide; and we care for those who need our assistance and prayers.

I believe that every single event in life happens in an opportunity to choose love over fear.

  1. What an amazing video! I loved it! Oprah’s quote hits the nail right on the head. This is what it is all about. My haiku for this week was about humanity too: “My refuge is love – for color has no meaning, just humanity.” I think many of us feel the same way. Thanks for sharing such a powerful message! Well done!!! ❤
