The world has increasingly become more hateful, violent, selfish, negative, etc… We are our own biggest threat towards extinction and also our only hope of surviving. We, as a civilization, need to start making more small positive changes right away. The human race depends on it and seems that we have forgotten about humanity.
Yes, the human race. Not just the whites or blacks, Christian or Muslims, man or woman, tall or short, etc… Everything that has happened and will happen in the world affects everyone, no matter who you are. With that being said…we can’t let the fear mongering people continue to take us down the dark and evil road that we are currently on. There is a difference between fact and fear. Fact is clear and logical whereas fear is emotional and illogical.
I am a 5’4” white Christian man that lives paycheck to paycheck. You know who scares me the most? Bad people!!! That’s right, doesn’t matter color, race, religion, sex, or any of the other things that we use to separate us from others. Am I concerned about ISIS and other terrorist threats? Heck ya I am! I am not too concerned about Muslims or the refugees. You might be thinking that I am crazy but look at it this way.
There was recently a white man that shot up and killed some people at the Planned Parenthood in Colorado. I do not condone that and never will. Just because I am the same color skin as him doesn’t mean that I will do the same thing. Also… if there were groups going around killing people and I felt it was not safe to live there anymore, I would hope and pray that I would find shelter without any kind of prejudice. How would you feel? How would you handle it?
The one word that has the biggest impact in our lives. Great things are accomplished with it and chaos is fueled when it is absent. I have many people in my life that are of different color, race and religion. We get along great because we have respect for each other. We see each other as a human and not a description. There are many white men that are scumbags but I am not them or a scumbag. ISIS may be “Muslim” but not all Muslims are like them. The ones I have come across are funny, polite, caring and want the world to be a better place. Yes, there are Muslims that do inflict harm on others but there are also whites, black, Christian, Catholic, Asian, etc…. that do the same thing too!
Yes that is correct! People are stupid and think illogically because majority of the time they do/say whatever the masses tell them. A person is intelligent, logical, and empowered. A person has the super natural powers of making their own decisions and thoughts. This is the beauty of having free will. The positive changes that need to be done begins with you and only you. All it takes is just one person to get the ball rolling. Will that one person be you?
We can’t let the current and future events to cause us to forget about humanity. One by one, we need to start locking arms and telling the world that we stand together for what is right. We will no longer be controlled by the bad people in the world. This might seem impossible to you but look at all the great accomplishments that had been made throughout history. One last thing before you go….a challenge. Take a moment today when looking at people and repeat the following:
True self lives in “Who am I” not “What am I”
Be sure to show compassion, patience and hope towards others. Till my next post…Share. Inspire. Conquer.
