We live in a world that often gives us back what we put forth.
We share light and it returns to illuminate us.Love brings us patience and the ability to heal.
Faith builds hope (for some it’s the other way around).We give compassion and it’s opportunities silently creep from the shadows for fulfillment.
Trust brings us loyalty.Dreams build opportunity.
Effort brings achievement.Friendship builds bonds.
and so forth…or so it seems…
There are a pair of wild cards that are prevalent in our world, and they appear to trump my logic.They are unfairness and greed.
These elements unravel our society, starting on a personal level at home, and expanding exponentially throughout the whole globe.They divide us into the "haves" and the "have-nots".
Some individuals, organizations, governments, corporations, and religions, force their needs, objectives, policies, mandates, and beliefs, ahead of an individuals right to live with comfort and dignity, thus impeding one's freedom of choice in making moral decisions, and obstructing principled rules of honorable conduct.
They are the "haves".
What’s left are the burdened, voiceless, weak, and victimized, who are left to their own devices, and whom often fall through the cracks of our social fabric.
They are the have-nots".
Unless our world learns to become communal (on an epic scale), with a sensitivity on becoming our brother’s keeper, and placing another’s needs ahead of our own, nothing can ever change. But changes are possible. It all starts with one person, and with one foot being placed in front of the other.That’s why I say "NO" to unfairness and "NO" to greed. And that’s why I hope you will join me.
My Wishcast for Wednesday March 10, 2010 is that we all join together to say no to unfairness, and no to greed.
