We're all human. When you dig down deep to the core, we're all the same. Any way that we fathom to solve problems must not be met with force. It's
like Self hurting Self... it doesn't make sense. An important aspect to resolution is seeking an understanding.
For example, the crack head family member. Let me ask you, how do you treat a bee... a snake... how do you treat poison ivy? Do you cast judgement and
turn your back on such things? No. You understand that a bee can sting, so you calmy usher it away as to not cause it stress. You slowly step back and
walk away from a snake. You walk around poison ivy. You understand a thing, and then you can better interact with it. When the thief comes around, put
your valuables away and lock doors/draws ahead of time. Show them love, and understand their nature. Perhaps your understanding and friendship will
save their life or someday help them change for the better.
I don't know. When I understand that we are all one mankind... I see solutions without conflict. Self shouldn't hurt Self.
Look at how our medias and societies separate us and polarize us. I am different than you because the color of my skin, my I.Q., my religion, my bank
account, my country, my neighborhood, my political ideas, my taste in music, and I am even different than you because of what sports team I like.
Wow. It is crazy how much we separate ourselves. We must start little campaigns of unity instead of separation. We can't wait for a messiah, or a
savior, or a righteous president, or a disaster, or chaotic change. Each of us must work our asses off to promote Peace and unity, just as hard as
"others" are promoting disunity and separation. Jump out there and show everyone you are their fellow human being. Acts of kindness and understanding
are more powerful than bullets. We forget this because we watch too much violence on t.v., movies, and games.
What are your further thoughts on how to effect the kind of change you wish for the world? It's a big responsibility, but it's one we all must be
mindful of together.
