What is the matter with us? Why do we think that we have such power that we can rip families apart, judge those that are not of the same national origin as us, suppress those that have not come from a background of wealth and education? What is a matter with us that we think that someone else will always step up and say something, do something, be the person that can stop that which everyone sees but no one seems to be able to stop? Do we really believe one person can stop the insanity that is swirling? Do we not see that our moral compass as a culture has broken? Do we not understand that those that see the breakdown of humanity are afraid to speak? We have allowed the bullies of the world to overtake those of us that want to do what is right. Do we not see this?
Please people, this is not right. The human contract is being broken. Life’s most precious gift is that of a child. How can we stand by and watch as those gifts are torn from the people who created them? That we sit and wonder why we have suicide rates rising and yet we watch as a stoic news person is brought to tears because of the horror of what they have been tasked to report. That we watch the news of school shootings and are numb to the pain that once was when we first heard of Columbine. That after Sandy Hook we thought that would be the end and it wasn’t. How many more have happened since? Do you even know? Do we even care about our children anymore? Do we even care about any children anymore?
Please just stop believing the problem will be fixed by others. Please just stop believing that you have no control over the decline of the human condition. Please just stop pretending you are not a part of it. Please just stop letting the bullies of the world keep your voice suppressed.
Please just stop believing the problem will be fixed by others. Please just stop believing that you have no control over the decline of the human condition. Please just stop pretending you are not a part of it. Please just stop letting the bullies of the world keep your voice suppressed. Humankind deserves better. Our children deserve better. You deserve better. It’s time the power of the silent “we”overcome the power of the “they” that is breaking the moral compass of many. Who will be the David to step up to the Goliath? When will we as a culture ban together to show our true strength against the evils of the world around us? When will we as a culture admit there is a problem so we can begin to find the solutions? Please let it be soon, humanity depends on it.
