BROKEN SOCIETY


cropped-br8ucw8cqaiqz2d1.jpg

I would like to state that this article has nothing to do with religion and it’s only my opinion. I remember growing up in a Country where people used to take care of one another. Where people used to take pride not only in their homes but their communities. Where has the faith in humanity gone?

Today it all seems wrong and out of place. If someone falls in front of us, instead of trying to pick them up and see if they are ok, people just laugh and take out their cellphones to record it and post it on social media. If kids fight in the street people will run to their phones and once again record it instead of breaking them up. Where has the faith in humanity gone?

Have we failed our children? As I look around it seems to me that some children have more control over their parents. I see young children dictating what parents should do and not the other way around. I see children speaking back to parents and joining in adult conversation they should not be a part of.

Growing up things were not this way. Parents did their jobs and the children did their jobs. I can’t help but to question our faith in one another. I don’t think it matters what religion you follow. We should all be better to one another without looking for some kind of reward. We should have more pride in ourselves and in our communities. Our daughters should learn to respect themselves so no man can take their honor. Our sons should take pride in their mothers and remember a woman is more than just a trophy with honors.

Our world seems to have changed with the years. Technology is way advanced but our mental growth has declined. Common sense and courtesy have gone out the window like yesterday’s newspaper. I see people complain about the things they don’t like but they do the same things to others. People will do just about anything to advance themselves even if it means turning their backs on your friends and family. There is no stability in  what people care about. We might care about something today and tomorrow we care about something else. There is no common grounds to stand on. Most people feel as if they are entitled to things just because. Working hard and making an honest living is not good enough anymore. People want to live a reality show life. People want to imitate the Kardashian’s and the Jersey Shore shows but real life is not anyway close to these fictional shows.

People, wake up. Its 2016 and it’s time for people to take responsibility for their own actions. Stop the blame game and start to use your common sense. Be kind to your neighbor and to one another. Life is great. Don’t worry about things you have no control over. Stop trying to impress people who don’t pay your bills. Enjoy your life and please lookout for one another.

In this election year please people lets vote for the person who is going to get us back on track in our Country. We don’t need to be divided we need to be united.

  1. Joe – You have become quite the writer. “We should all be better to one another without looking for some kind of reward. We should have more pride in ourselves and in our communities.” Yes! I have over 70 college students in the student programs I manage — from community college, first-generation college freshman to Harvard seniors (their collective blog is here: http://www.pearsoned.com/higher-education/students/blog/). The common thread that connects them all is their compassion for one another and their passion for making a difference in the world. They give me such hope about our world!! So do the 100+ students I see once a month as a mentor for America Needs You (http://www.americaneedsyou.org/). So while I agree with your position, I’m equally optimistic about our future. I would encourage you to find examples of this optimism and share those stories in your blog as well. If you’re so inclined (and have an hour to spare on a commute perhaps), I’m obsessed with this this podcast! http://www.onbeing.org/program/james-doty-the-magic-shop-of-the-brain/8397 <<< spreading compassion, being kind to one another, can LITERALLY change ourselves and our world. The podcast isn't exactly on topic to your post – but I think you'd like it! 🙂 Keep writing. Enjoying your blog quite a bit.
