Because of technology, we have become enlightened about more of the wrong doings and terrible crimes happening behind closed doors. And what we must realize, accept, and deal with is the fact that these things have been happening and will continue to happen if we do not do something about it. “Injustice anywhere is injustice everywhere”, as the great Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. once said. If someone is willing to be hateful, unfair, unjust, unkind, rude, mean, judgmental, or otherwise negative toward another, they are more than willing to be that way toward you.
No one wants to be mistreated or harmed. So now that we know more and see what is happening toward our fellow beings (humans, animals, and the Earth), we need to act. Use your voice, use your hands, give what you can, where you can, how you can to whatever cause that helps to garner the necessary help needed by others. Whether you can do a little or a lot, help is help, care is care. We won’t all be able to understand all of the struggles of our fellow beings, but the least we could do is try to understand, try to grasp the position that they are in and help in any way we can to amend the unneccasary problems they face.
There are two major things we are solely responsible for in this life, how we treat ourselves and how we treat others. If you don’t know how someone else is being treated, you find out, and it is wrong, do something. It does no good to you or anyone else to sit back and be blind to the detriment of others. We are all in need of care, respect, support, and love. Let’s do that for one another. Let’s help each other. Let’s give each other the leg up we need. So much is backwards and wrong in this world, let’s have a hand in changing that.
Things are happening, all the time, things that would make you happy and smile, and things that would make you cry tears of horror and give you nightmares for the rest of your life. We should all be active in the solution and enforcement of making it harder and completely unacceptable to mistreat and harm others. None of us can do this on our own. Those who wish to rule over, conquer, control, and harm others are not being lazy, taking breaks, or giving up. Why should we? We have something worth living and fighting for. We have something worth all the blood, sweat, tears, and work this life has to offer. We have love and one another. You are worth it all. I am worth it all. Animals are worth it all. This Earth is worth it all. We are worth it all. We are worthy of love, kindness, goodness, acceptance, freedom, and happiness. So fight for it.
We are no longer blind or unaware of many things, so now it is time to face them and deal with them. No matter how uncomfortable, hard, or difficult these issues may be, we need to come together and work these problems out. No matter how long it takes, it is in everyone’s best interest to solve these things while we can. These issues should not be left to our future generations to solve when these are our burdens to bare and deal with right now. Let’s get to work.
