Getting one’s act together

May 07,2017 - Last updated at May 07,2017

The situation around us these days is nothing but sad and bleak.

All over the globe, human beings are sad and unhappy; we have lost our basic humanity for cheap values.

Were we not taught by our parents and teachers that peace, love and care conquer everything?

Why, then, do we behave against such teachings?

This planet was shaken by World War I and II, but today it is facing an even wider-scale conflict.

Despite all the progress made and all the organisations created to keep the planet healthy and peaceful, we have, sadly, made it worse.

The United Nations has lost its legitimacy. Erratic, immoral and immature leaders around the world make their countries misbehave while the rest close their eyes to their deeds.

Our future is at stake.

Future generations will suffer tremendously as we are going towards self-destruction.

Leaders of this world should promptly start to serve their countries and the world at large selflessly, caringly and in earnest before it is too late.

Humanity should work to sort its problems out, by focusing on major issues: wars, climate change, famines and water crisis, amongst many.

Leaders should work to help people become self sufficient, productive, educated and healthy.

The UN and US (the superpower) should solve the Israeli-Palestinian conflict once and for all, not by taking sides or keeping silent.

And we, individuals, should do our part.

Silence may be gold, but not speaking out against injustices near or far is evil, and makes one automatically a participant in the crime.

THIS IS THE BEST POETIC FACTS THAT I HAVE EVER READ AND IRONICALLY, IT IS COMMING FROM A WOMAN AS WOMEN ALWAYS REASON DIFFERENTLY WITH FACTS CONTRARY TO MEN THAR RUNS ON THE STEROID OF TESTESTORONE. SHE HAS CLEARLY STATED THE FACT WHY THESE MADNESS MUST END NOW OR ELSE WE WILL BE HEADING TOWARDS CATASTROPHIC DESTRUCTION OF OUR PLANET. IT IS SAD TO SEE PEOPLE ALL OVER THE WORD LIVING O LESS THAN A PENNY A DAY WITH NO HEALTH CARE, NO COUNTRY, NO IDENTITY, NO HOME OR LAND, NO LOVE BUT BOMBS AND GUNS. OUR LEADERS LIE TO US BUT ACTS AS DOUBLE AGENTS AND MARCHANTS OF DEATHS AND DESTRUCTIONS BUT THE POOR AND THE HAVE NONE'S DIE FIRST. WHY CAN'T WE ALL LIVE IN PEACE, SHARE THE GOOD AND ABANDON THE EVIL. AS ANIMAL FARM STATES, POWER CURRUPTS AND ABSOLUTE POWER CURRUPTS ABSOLUTELY. ITS TIME TO THINK AND DO THE RIGHT THING.
