I think a lot of times, in life, we ask ourselves what would make the world a better place. We all have an idea of what, in our minds, would make life on earth more bearable and pleasant for everyone. Of course, all those ideas differ, but variety is the spice of life, right?
I have a hard time trying to figure out what I’d do away with. My faith tells me that everything happens for a reason, so changing one thing could put events in play that are way worse. My practical side says get rid of bigotry and hatred, and we’d all be a hell of a lot better off. It’s a crap shoot, really. If we didn’t have bigotry and hatred, who knows what the world would be like. I’d like to think it would be better, but in reality something else might creep up to take its place that is far worse.
Every day, with the current events going on in the media, we’re constantly inundated with images of how hatred for others, hatred for different races and ethnicities, hatred for different religions threaten to tear apart our humanity. I still believe that, without it, we could all live just a little more peacefully. I look forward to the day where I can see if my belief is reality.
