Where is the L.O.V.E.?
as most of you know who know me (and this is by no means meant to sound braggish) know, I have always and will always try to do my best to help someone who needs it. Even if it is a simple smile to a passerby on the street. I feel like sometimes all it can take to change a persons day or maybe even someones outlook is a kind word or a kind action. I know that kind, good people are out there take the incredible MJ fam for example..a great example of people who will go out of their way to make someone feel better or to help but i have to say for awhile there I was starting to get disenchanted with humanity as a whole. It's disheartening to see a person drop a bag and people walk past them like they aren't even there, someone broke down on the side of the road in need of help and at LEAST 20 cars fly by before one even attempts to stop & help. I started to wonder, where is the love anymore? or at least where is the compassion. Have people gotten so jaded and cold that they can walk past someone in need and not even take a second glance or even care? Do they just tell themselves 'it's the persons fault they're this way' or do they just simply shrug and say 'why is this my problem?'. When did it become all about ME and stop being about WE as a whole as a group? Unfortunately, for the time being there will continue to be people who think like that & as disheartening as that is to me I think I have found the love. I volunteered earlier this year at a "soup kitchen" & saw people of all ages, races coming together to help people who might have not had a meal otherwise. As i'm sitting here taking a break from packing & boxing supplies to send to the people of Haiti I am again seeing all ages, races ...people of low income & those who look wealthy again coming together taking time out of their day to lend a hand to help people in need. & I smile as I think, there ARE kind hearted compassionate people out there. the world hasn't truly been taken over by cold uncaring people WE are still here, WE still care & I think that WE can make a change! I think and hope change is coming. I Pray that 2010 is just the start of spreading love and compassion. That it's just the start of people accepting each other & loving each other for our differences. 2010 a year where change is going to come :)
