Our Community is always in need of loving support. On the outside all seems wells but to anyone with eyes knows better. We have segregated ourselves, to the point where we do not know how to treat one another. We disrespect each other, instead of helping lift each other up we find creative ways of keeping each other down. Differences are objects of ridicule instead of celebrated. Stigma continues to thrive as we further push away those who need us the most. Letting fear control how we choose to live, and push away those who would support us?
“How do we change that?”
This is the question I pose. Strike that, “How do You change that?” If it were in your hands to make a difference, and your actions could change fate the world. How would you do it? Think about it. If you could make the world a better place, without racism or stigma. Where people treated each other with mutual respect and without bias. There’s no one else that can do it but you.
I can hear the answers now. I’d kill ALL the Stupid people lacking commons sense… That said I re state the question if you could change the fate of the world… without using violence. How would you do it?
I ask because it is within your power to do. You can make the world a better place in the way you treat people. How you treat yourself, your friends and family, how you treat your neighbour and those in your community. Choosing to acknowledge the homeless and aiding them if in your power to do so.
Treating people with the respect that human being deserve. The roles could reverse at any time, and you be the one sitting on the curb having lost everything. Wouldn’t you want to be treated with respect? Wouldn’t you want to be seen as a human being? We’re all the same, some of us might have more or less but it doesn’t change that we are all human beings. Just because one might be rich, doesn’t automatically make one wealthy. Having more doesn’t mean anything. How one chooses to live could greatly affect ones quality of life.
In this day in age it has become habit to be selfish and indifferent toward our fellow man. I would admit that I have committed such act of indifference. Treating people irrelevant to my personal existence, those who neither improve nor lessen my existence that there is no point for me to engage you. There is no one more important than myself and acknowledging you is simply a waste of my time. That sounds all too familiar.
Imagine the effect, should you open yourself up enough to care about the people around you.
That’s how you could change the world.
