No matter who we are or what we've done we are all interconnected people. Our ups, downs, differences or indifference affects the whole of society. It doesn't matter who we deal with or who we exclude from our lives we are still all interconnected. Cultural differences, racial divisions, language barriers or economic inconsistencies are just things that make the team have to work harder
Fostering love is probably the most difficult thing there is. It requires us to loose our preconceived notions of one another. It requires us to disregard our differences and it makes peace in unstable situations. Love is a simple concept that we have lost. If we could just love many of the world’s problems could be solved. If we could learn to accept the differences of other there would be no racial divisions.
We are working to eradicate every type of thing in this world, hunger, poverty, abused and neglected children etc., when the bottom line is learning to actively love. Picking up where others fall down creates a continuous strength of being. I know it’s Utopia, a perfect place where everything works together for the good of all. As a Christian I call it heaven.
So maybe I will practice loving like I feel like I’ll have to in my future. I will speak life, I will live uprightly, I will trust that God is in control and where my brothers/sisters fall I will help to lift them up.
No man is an island,
Entire of itself,
Every man is a piece of the continent,
A part of the main.
If a clod be washed away by the sea,
Europe is the less.
As well as if a promontory were.
As well as if a manor of thy friend's
Or of thine own were:
Any man's death diminishes me,
Because I am involved in mankind,
And therefore never send to know for whom the bell tolls;
It tolls for thee.
