I find myself having a hard time writing lately, at first I wasn’t sure what it was but now I think I know why.
I am the type of person that when things get tough, I quiet down or shut down completely to what is going on around me so that way I protect myself. I’m not saying this is the best thing to do but it’s something I have taught myself over the years, plus it keeps me from getting too emotional about events and saying things in a manner I know I shouldn’t.
So in light of everything that is going on in the world, the looting, the racism (by both sides), and the total lack of respect for other human beings, I find that I just want to pull away, remaining in my own little piece of the world with my family.
You might think I don’t care but you would be wrong, I do care, it’s just that during times like these people are not careful, they seem to lose their common sense, they get too emotionally charged and begin acting like animals. And if they don’t act like animals physically, they do verbally, labeling, calling names, generalizing, and many more, always trying to point the finger but never facing the facts.
How quickly we forget that mankind was made in the image of an Intelligent Being, that we were given the gift of freewill, and in the process of this freewill, we hurt ourselves and others, sometimes intentionally but mostly we don’t mean to do it. If this Intelligent Being can forgive us, why can’t we forgive each other?
