Journal Entry #593

As long as one person is allowed to suffer in this manner then we have failed as a species. To recognize the suffering in not only ourselves but in others and do nothing about it is a mark of a species on decline. We are capable of understanding, we are capable of solutions we are capable to act but we don’t. Yes there are those who do act but it as a species we do not and this is will be our downfall, maybe not immediately but this is what must change.
What could be more important than providing the basics of life to all?
What could be more important than the safety of all?
Nothing should be.
As long as those we allow to be in power (and have no illusion power is given and powers is taken away) to not solve the basic problems in this world for humanity then we need new leadership. There is no excuse for people to starve if we have the resources to prevent it. There is no excuse for people to die of preventable disease if we can do something about it.
As long as we allow;
To get in the way of empathy and the rights of all humans then we are nothing more than the worst of us. There is no excuse, not one you can think of that will justify this, not one.
We will be known for turning our heads and walking away when we should be running to help. We all need to give up something; anything to help another and our leaders must show us the way. If they do not it is time for new leaders.
I know most of you don’t want to hear this or even care but this will be the bottom line for humanity. This will define who we are. One day we will be seen by others who will look at this moment in time as an example of what or what not to do.
