It is easy to be cruel and/or take our anger out on those that are subordinate to us in any way. It is so easy to strike out against those that are weaker than us or in a position where they can’t protect themselves against our attack.
The true test of a person is how they treat those they have few repercussions for treating others badly and even more honor goes to those that don’t go along with people that are indulging in abusive and violent behavior…. even when they are being pushed to do so.
We don’t seem to be taught or shown by example a real sense of personal honor and courage in this world beyond patriotism and group allegiance. Which is so very sad to me.
That’s why I do all I can to be an example to my children and to the world of doing the right thing at almost any cost, of following my heart above any crowd, of staying true to myself against any storm, because that shows who I really am, much more than my bank account, my physical appearance, or who I rub elbows next to ever could or would.
My deepest wish for the people of this world is to have the courage to be brave (and truly themselves) against any odds…… I believe all souls would benefit and flourish so beautifully from that. And that this alone would be enough to save this world from the trajectory it seems so unfortunately fated to….. its very own demise.
