55 Years On And Still As Poignant As The Day It Was Delivered

It is amazing to me, that a speech delivered way back in 1963 can be still so poignant in 2018. Whilst we should celebrate the progress that has been made, we should be ashamed and embarrassed at where we have failed; and we must continue to strive to deliver freedom and equality to all people in this land, not just the privileged.

100 years after the emancipation proclamation, people were still not free. 55 years after this great man’s speech, people who are different; be it color, religion or sexuality are still being issued a bad check by our nation.

The Problem is Love?

Is the world burning?

Are these the end times?

Look at the news

Look at social media

What has happened?

Where are we heading?

 

Murder, rape, slavery

Terrorism, prison brakes

Pirates, dictators, kingpins

 

Money laundering, tax evasion

Political corruption, corporate corruption

Capitalism, communism, socialism

Fuck-it-all-ism

 

Domestic abuse

Rampant prejudice

Bullying, pedophilea,

 

Common decency? Where is that?

 

Preachers with private jets, telling the world that the biggest problem we have is two people loving each other? really?

People have a right to their own beliefs, just because you do not share them does not give you the right to judge or hate. Especially if you are claiming to do it in the name of Jesus. People claim to be defending the word of God, doing what is right. Did you ever stop to think that if God is really who we claim He is, then how arrogant would that make you, to think that He would need you to defend Him? Share the gospel, not some hate message delivered through false piety.

At times I despair at the world, other times I ignore the world. I wonder sometimes why I write less these days, sometimes it is because to write I need to observe & sometimes this world disgusts me so much that I just want to switch off, to hide in my own little bubble. Then other times I feel like I should rant, because I have the right to my beliefs too. The right to think that each and every person is equal, created with their own path & their own unique beauty. It is not for anyone to judge another, simply to love, help them on their journey if you can. If you cannot comprehend the choices of another, if they are not hurting anyone, just step back & wish them well, they probably don’t need or want your approval anyway.

Peace & love my friends
