There’s got to be a better way.
I keep telling myself this as I watch the world evolve into a caricature of the Orwellian novel 1984. Living in the woods keeps me from having to deal with most of the insanity.
Still, there’s got to be a better way.
There’s just got to be. A way for us to come together without division. This madness is out of control. Burning down cities without even questioning the rightness of their actions. Assaulting the elderly, creating autonomous zones, and assaulting the police-where does it end?
There’s gotta be a better way.
Violence begets more violence. I have seen it over and over in my lifetime. In Iraq, if a father is killed, the son more often than not follows in his footsteps. It’s not just the Middle East, it’s happening right here at home. Let me ask a simple question: Why does one group of peoples lives matter more than another group? We all were made in the image of God. Therefore, all of us are valid in the sight of God Almighty.
There’s gotta be a better way or we will not recover.
I would suggest that we start by finding some common ground. Regardless, of how minute the common ground is, it would give us a place to begin. We must have accountability. ‘It’s racist’ can’t be our first response to someone’s wrongdoing. We must realize that some people are just evil. Life is not fair, nor are we promised the same outcome. However, if we fail to right the ship, we will drown in the madness sweeping the world.
God help us.
