Who would have thought, in our time of technology superiority and medical wonderment, we would shut down our world to deal with a virus from COVID-19? Why did we shut down our world? What were we afraid of? Getting a little sick? Getting a lot sick? Dying?
AHA! DYING! IS IT DYING? ARE WE AFRAID OF DYING? SERIOUSLY?
If our lives are so valuable to us, though, why do we let ourselves be killed so easily? We can live one of two ways: We can lock ourselves in or let ourselves out. We may be able to protect ourselves more from dying if we lock ourselves in but if we let ourselves out, welcome to your world! In case you don’t recognize it, yours is the world where crime runs rampant, murder is an everyday thing, and there’s a pretty good chance you, a loved one, or a friend of yours is going to be hurt by another human being (who is someone’s child) and you will live with the pain of having been hurt by them for the rest of your life . . . and the persons responsible for your pain will never get punished! In order to fix this, we have to eliminate the root of the problem: And that isn’t a virus! You can hide from a virus until you find a cure for it but what about people? How can we hide from them? How do we find a cure from them?
There are nearly 7.5 billion people on earth. It is estimated there are over 4,000 religions and it is believed people speak about 6,500 languages. Yet there is no religion anywhere in the civilized world saying a person cannot kill us or our children. There is no government saying the right person will be held responsible for stealing from us or our family. There is no law of any land saying that a person is not allowed to make a mockery of, tease, bother, insult, lie about, embarrass, or in any way destroy another human being! Each of us has the right – unrestricted – to do anything evil, hateful, harmful, and without justification to any other person on our planet without recourse! How is that?
Because parents do something wrong if their children do something wrong! And that means if their children EVER do something wrong: ANY time, ANY place!!
1+1 should not equal 3 . . . unless the 3 is a good 3!
