Love Thy Neighbor
Today I want to talk about why we don’t follow this simple practice anymore. Why is it so hard for people to share a little care and kindness to your fellow man? This is something that has really been bothering me lately. I was raised to treat others as I wish to be treated by them. All I gotta say about that is so far people have shown me that it doesn’t work that way. My husband and I have always been nice to people, even if they didn’t really deserve it. And still, we seem to always get treated badly by those people. The last two people we lived with did us that way. Just kicked us out on the street with a baby and no place to really go. Why, you might ask? The only thing I can think of is selfishness. Or possibly, they are just the kind of people who get pleasure out of seeing others suffer, because it secretly makes them feel better about their own pathetic lives. But then again, what do I know? The only things I know are that I love my family, friends, and God, that we always make it out okay, that I believe in Karma, and that you can’t give up. So far, people have shown me the bad in this world. And believe me it has not been a pretty picture. Our world sure can be an ugly place. But I know that it can also be a nice place, where people are still kind to each other. A few people have shown me this. So there is still hope, and I won’t give up. I do, however, hope that other’s are like me and don’t give up either. Now is a good time to stick together because a few can make a big difference. Well at least that’s what my Papa would say.
