LETTER: Love isn’t division

2016-04-19 06:00

I would like to comment on Dallas Broughton’s letter in People’s Post of 3 April (“No mercy for those who rape, murder”).

It is hard to fathom that Mr Broughton believes a better world can come about when what he proposes is but replacing one evil with another. Creating even more division in society than there already is can only contribute to more of the same problems, no solutions.

I believe that it is only when I can let go of my fear and take a genuine interest in another fellow human being that change can possibly come about. To condemn another’s actions is to not understand. Love does not divide. Trust begets trust. I, too, can fail and go astray. The potential for evil is also in me.

May Mr Broughton one day find that where love rules the world is changed, one small but significant moment at a time.

Cobie Roelvert, Kenilworth
