We all have heard the quote about change. "Give me the courage to change what I can change and ...". These words are part of a quote known as the "serenity prayer". Change of any kinds upsets our equilibrium and change that traumatizes a person that we care about should SHOCK our SOUL some or else we are not much of a human being. Our serenity is shattered. I think that the least a person deserves is to hear words that say an injustice has occurred and we are all in danger. A warning bell should be rung and everyone within hearing distance needs to realize that they are not as safe as they thought.
Naturally, if we stand up or shout against injustice, we endanger ourselves, but we humans do that sort of thing. Deer have a tail that has a white underside. The tail goes up and the other deer are signaled and that ONE deer is endangered. We are humans and we are more complicated, but I believe that we are hardwired to care for the herd and to take risks for the group. I hope I die before I crave serenity more than I crave justice and lose all efforts to further a just and caring world.
How do we know that we cannot change anything before we try? Offering concern may be small, but it can mitigate some of the injustice. Offering concern and showing care is really a huge thing to the person who has been injured or harmed. We are humans and that is the way we "roll". When one person negates our worth and value, one person can negate one person's power and that is why Each and every one of us can make a difference.
Maybe I am not wise. Maybe I am foolish, but I have to rant and rail against what I see as injustice and do what I can before I can have any kind of SERENITY. I wish I had less wisdom and more courage, because there is a whole lot that needs to be changed and I am not doing enough to change what can and should be changed. I still try to share the pain of my loved ones and give what comfort that I can, else I would have no serenity at all.Recommend0 recommendations
