If you had to choose between fame and fortune or curing the world of cancer but no one would know that you had what would you choose? Honestly. Think this one through now. You and your family could have an easier life with all of the things that your heart’s desire or you could save the lives of millions but they would never know that you had.
The noble and moral thing for our world as a whole would be to save the millions, but our society puts an emphasis on the individual. Our world is one where the man who pushes the weaker man aside has a better life in the long run. We reward those who are criminals and we criminalize those who are not financially capable of defending themselves.
It is not wrong to want better for yourself or for your family. It is not an evil choice. It is what we are emphasizing today. We idolize the people who have everything in their lives and we long to join them in so many ways. Our world has lost touch with its humanity though. We no longer have neighbors that we bake cookies for and watch out for. We keep our noses buried in our technology and create a barrier from those around us. We further distance ourselves by pushing others behind us.
I miss living in a world where my children can play free from fear. I miss the idea of not locking my doors at night. I worry about our future and I wonder what role I am playing in it as well. Our social media has taken our connections away. We talk at each other instead of to one another. I see people out in a restaurant staring at their phones. What is important is being hidden from our sights. You see it on the internet every day with trolls and hate. We do not respect each other. We live in a world of 1s and 0s that is full of disdain and belittlement. People take offense and spout out vulgarities to tear into the heart of people they have never met before. Who are you talking to? What pain do they face every day? What problems fill their lives? We have stopped caring about others and it is taking a toll on all of us.
Do well for those that depend on you, but care about those who have no connection to you too. We need to respect each other more and live for our children’s society. So many people are broken and hurting and I don’t want my children to grow up in a world where being happy is an abnormality. If you have a cause don’t let it be a “be”cause, because a cause should be something you truly feel deeply about and not something to fill your schedule or give you a feeling of importance. We all have our own worlds but that doesn’t mean that our worlds can’t touch.
