Journal Entry # 42
April 20th, 2010
In my 19th journal entry I offered my first challenge. This challenge was to the religions of the world. I have not received one response from this challenge. I have also offered this challenge in my published articles, again no interest. This shall not deter me from my goals because without direction we are lost.
I have tried to take a different approach in looking at the difficulties of the world. There are so many problems that need to be solved that range from an individual to global that the task seems impossible. I admire the person who tries to solve just one problem such as helping a child in a developing country get food and medicine. I admire the person that dedicates their life to helping the needy. I admire the documentary filmmaker who sees an issue and risks their life to bring this issue to light. The problem I see is that no one is really addressing the core issue which leads to all other issues that are manmade. Now I don`t know the exact cause but I believe it deals with a fundamental way we think. We are so divided by so many issues such as geography, religion, economics and race that it would appear we will never unite as a species, never the less that is exactly what we must do. We must change the fundamental way we view each other, the fundamental way we think. We must seek the truth in all matters and have compassion and respect for all humanity. The greed must stop.
I will speak although few if any will listen but there will come a point when we must listen.
My 2nd Challenge – ONE DAY. One economists estimate to solve the problems of poverty and disease is 180 billion dollars. Each year the combines military cost of the world is 3 trillion dollars. I challenge all of humanity, each citizen, businesses and governments to donate their income for one day. Also for one day I ask that we all unite in this common goal and also have one day of complete peace. All humanity with a common goal. This would be a start towards something fantastic
Seek the truth always
