We are Earth’s Children … shall we grow up now? August 17, 2013August 17, 2013 / Penny L Howe ~ Please read! All of us, every single person, is born with amazing potential for growth! Each of our lives – so very precious, and necessary! How can we know the significant difference any one person when given love, opportunity and education might make in the tomorrow of our days, when we, like children, base many of our (adult) decisions on our personal emotions and preconceptions; and not on intelligent reasoning? Poor “life changing” decisions are made: … in the name of intolerance, … in the name of indifference, … in the name of power, … in the name of religion, … in the name of greed, … in the name of hate! It defies intelligence and logic to not preserve the most valuable resource we possess. The human race (in it’s entirety)! The most valuable commodity there is “Every single one of us!” Together there is nothing we can’t accomplish If we work as one! We are Earth’s children! But are we still growing? Faith can shape us, filling our souls with untold riches … … unless fashioned into a weapon to be used against others. Our global citizenship can become a harvest of abundance … … unless we stratify and divide within ourselves deciding we are superior based on the false premise of entitlement. Our capacity for loving (and forgiving) can expand our futures! Our capacity for hatred and fear can destroy it! Shall we grow up now?

In a word, FABULOUS! 🙂
awwww,,,,, thank you! 🙂
It is a worthy thought my great friend, and in time who knows
how the world will adjust 🙂 Have fun today and this evening too 🙂
I think so Andro. It’s a thought that needs to happen my friend, so I continue to hope (my programming I guess) and do positive things, and so on, towards this end! 🙂
Having a positive mind with optimistic thoughts definitely helps, and a combined effort can really help, this is a fact not speculation so we all need to find that extra pulse of energy and use it wisely 🙂
Have a delightful rest of evening Penny 🙂
I agree, good night sweet and caring friend of mine! 🙂 xo
Good night, and sweet dreams Penny 🙂
This is hauntingly true, and very direct, though wrapped up in the beauty of poetic flow. A wonderfully thought provoking piece – thank you:-)
Thank you very much for your lovely comment. It is important to me, us, everyone, life, the future! 🙂
I also! 🙂
Reblogged this on The ObamaCrat™.
I truly believe it’s time for growing up, indeed! Jenny
Thank you Jenny, we are in complete agreement with each other!
Lucid and profound – a difficult combination to achieve. 🙂
Thank you. I woke up early this morning thinking to myself, as I sat outside and listened to the quiet peace of nature, if we are so intelligent that we can do these amazing things with technology, etc. Why are we not doing the same for the wellness of humanity, we must still be children then, in many aspects of how we live and conduct our lives! Just my thoughts! Again my thanks for stopping by to read! 🙂
Some body who introspects has the potential to change the world.
The innocence of a child is the final stage in the development of a human being. So you are perfectly on course.
Loved this interaction 🙂
