The exclamation point is relevant to this topic. Let’s accept the fact that we become what our focused energy and efforts make us. If we push education entwined with directed usage requirements the chances this acquired knowledge will increase our life long fortunes rests at stable certainty. Human kind should be inclined to improve societies by addition through subtraction.
Explanation. Celebrating dignity, respect and kindness at all times makes these actions increase their reach beyond all lands and peoples. Help our media outlets understand that when the story is centered on the rudeness and bigotry of humanity this tends to be reinforced (maybe unknowingly) around the world. Add to our world by highlighting the good in us all and human beings will subtract those unsavory parts naturally.
I must begin with my own shortcomings and how I still must be vigilant with my thoughts. Trouble knocked on my door (at school and in the workplace) recently and I was surprised where my mind took me first. Yes, I thought violent solution first. This, needless to say, was highly disappointing for me because I’m not a young man and I’ve spent many years (vigilance I guess requires a lifetime commitment) resisting those instant impulses to solve my problems.
Eventually I chose to use techniques of professionalism and intellect to defuse and defeat my antagonists. Yeah, my first reactions made that life test a failure. That is why it is critical all of us demand improvement from each other. If someone is behaving badly, we need to have the strength to (pull them aside if possible) confront them openly and demand they change those offensive behaviors! Careful what you unleash into the world because the effects of that decision tends to linger long after you think that situation is over.
