Our world is a beautiful place and we should be very grateful for it but yet some people are ungrateful and are taking everything for granted, even their own lives. Let us take a minute to worry about ourselves. Are we the grateful ones or the ungrateful? It’s time we knew about our purpose on earth, which is to make a positive mark on the lives of others. Let’s remember ourselves the series of events that happened and which we continue to let happen.
Today, too many murders and brutalities are taking place in the world, whether in America, Asia, Africa, Europe or Australia, the sad thing is that they keep happening. The countries in these continents seem to be prospering in terms of economy and other developmental projects but greediness and lack of Peace and Justice have resulted in inhumane acts occurring globally where huge sums of money we tirelessly work for are dedicated back to resolving conflicts and wars. People in authority commit serious offenses which are liable to punishment but we tend to cover such offenses with big vocabularies. For example, when a minister or state official steals state money, we term it as corruption and the individual can admit on public media to refund the money without being arrested but an ordinary citizen steals a phone and he or she is termed as a thief and imprisoned for two years or more.
Humanity, Justice, and Peace are the things that balance our world, but we only see our future leaders on streets instead of being in schools, begging for arms due to poverty created by our own selfish and greedy deeds.
The Earth is bleeding and continues to bleed when innocent future leaders are killed through abortions, where young teens decide to enjoy an act but fail to take up responsibilities. Some use of money (power) to separate future leaders from parents and train them to be threats to society. Others engage in social vices just to feed themselves, killing their conscience to make a living. An event of injustice from 1960 is: Carlotta Walls LaNier was the youngest of the Little Rock Nine, a group of African-American students who, in 1957, were the first black students ever to attend classes at Little Rock Central High School in Little Rock, Arkansas. On February 9, 1960, four weeks before graduation, a bomb exploded at her home. Carlotta, her mother, and her sister were at home but no one was injured. Police arrested and beat Carlotta’s father in unsuccessful efforts to coerce a confession. Police then arrested two young black men, Herbert Monts, a family friend, and Maceo Binns, Jr. Carlotta never believed either man was responsible, but both were convicted and sentenced to five years in prison.
We have improved globally when it comes to peace, justice and humanity issues through the implementation of the United Nations’ Sustainable Development Goals (SDG’s). Those who slept are still sleeping, we must not be a living dead but a living, living, thus having a mindset of making an impact in a society where our names will be remembered by generations to come even when we are no more. We must strive while living to be remembered for the good things and not bad ones and it can start only when we make the effort to start. We must all make it an effort to educate ourselves about the benefits and importance of having a society with peace and justice and this could be accomplished when cooperating societies like; USAID and UKAID help in this education process.
Together, we’ve got the power to live in harmony and unity. We can make peace with each other and it’s time to save our planet and nurture it with peace and justice!
