Contemplating strange situations 

 

By Mira Khatib

 

When pets are cherished more than family…

When death is valued more than life…

When university dropouts are more successful than graduates…

When politicians are honest…

When the occupier is victimized…

When divorce is normal and marriage is not…

When children don’t respect their parents…

When people die seeking a living…

When the sound of guns put kids to sleep…

When money is valued more than friends…

When friends are virtual…

When there are more singers than scientists…

When greed nourishes greed…

When for every new millionaire a million more people go hungry…

When hate overtakes love…

And when diversion replaces inclusion…

This is a sign of time; time where all of us need to rethink why we have reached this low? A time for change.  Baby steps leading to bigger change.  Hope over fear.  Equal partnership between men and women.  The rich respecting the poor.  The conservative and the liberal meeting half way.  The strong supporting the weak. The rule of law prevailing.  AND we all remember that we are humans.
