Justice for All?

Until all are equal
in a society and feel justice
and mercy prevail, the society
remains unstable. We say we
want world peace, yet leave
people homeless, hungry, without
adequate medical care. We
live in our snug homes, drive
expensive cars to the gym
to lose weight gained by
over-indulgence. While through-
out the world, people die of
hunger and neglect.

Why do we sing songs, go on
freedom marches, wave banners for
peace, instead of helping those
in desperation? Peace you want?
Start in your own community, help
those in need, then expand your
circle of aid, including your
prayers for a world that knows no
war, loneliness, or fear.

Peace starts with you
and me
one act of kindness
at a time

    I agree fully with Source of Inspiration. I have lived on the street many years, at first I was forced too. Now I’m on the street by choice, it keeps me ground in life. Yes I should have a job be part of society, this would please family more, however I fully believe there is a reason in which I have such a choice, some how I am to give back to humanity. Which has been haunting my thoughts for years now.

    • Toad, you have a wonderful opportunity to contribute in this lifestyle you have chosen. You must come in contact with many different types of people, some in crisis, some just living their lives, others in hopeless despair. Any act of kindness that you want to share with each person can be a wonderful contribution. Sometimes, just sitting next to a person and being willing to listen without judging them or wanting to “fix” them…offering only loving acceptance, is a huge gift. A smile, a laugh, an interesting story you tell, all lovely gifts that brighten a day. IF you have the opportunity to do more, go for it. Help someone learn to read, get food, a warm blanket, the options are endless. Perhaps you already do these things and do not know how loving and valuable they are. Do not worry about pleasing family or others. If your life is what you want it to be, that is what is important. If it is not, think how you can change it so you are living a life that is meaningful to you. Keep in touch and it is my pleasure to meet you. Hugs, pat
