Dear readers, all of us have tried to become better persons during our lives.
We live in a society where violence is present from the cartoons are children see to the violent crimes we get to witness through social media, that make you wonder where is our world heading?
It’s easy to understand how easily our values can succumb in these scenarios.
We flip the pancake, as so to say, to accommodate our feelings in a way that our actions are justified. Or better said “our lack of action”. Specially when we agree with this anarchic way of life by remaining bystanders and not trying to do anything about it.
We don’t have to become Rev. Dr. Martin Luther King, or Dolores Huertas to do something, the only thing that we need to do is take action in one of the simplest ways, educate ourselves first and then share what we have learned with others. To counteract ignorance helping others see things differently.
We are bombarded with hatred, criticism, bullying, and many of the vices of humanity. It’s easier to destroy than to build bridges of communications on the grounds of understanding and respect. This way we are dismantling violence one step at at time.
Like Stephen Shwartz wrote, “hope is frail, but very hard to kill” in the lyrics of the song When You Believe. I want to hold on to that hope to believe in humanity and the choice we have to become better persons.
We can all attempt to construct a better world for ourselves and future generations to come, specially if we teach by practice one of the basic values of human race, RESPECT.
Just a little something to think about.
See you next time around, and thanks for stopping by.
