We are not superheroes

I rarely speak out on social media but I’ve been so saddened over the last few months by some people’s  ‘reactions to reactions’ that I feel I have to say this.

We are not superheroes.

Our hearts are not big enough to grieve for everyone who dies, no matter how tragic the circumstances.
Our purses are not deep enough to give to every appeal.
There are not enough hours in the day to perform every good work.

We can only do so much, and we each have to decide where we will make a difference and focus our energies there.

Please don’t demand of people that which they can’t do.
