All of us, every single person, is born with amazing potential for growth!
Each of our lives – so very precious,
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)!
valuable commodity there is
“Every single one of us!”
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?
