|The Burning of Troy, by Johann Georg Trautmann (1713–1769)|
If you think about a mother and father taking care of their family they are very careful to make sure there is food on the table, everyone gets to their doctors appointments, holds hands in the parking lot, buckles their seat belts etc. They realize that even one slip up could mean disaster, the loss of a life, a family member gone because of an avoidable accident. We humanity need to learn to view our entire global family the same way and find it unacceptable for these kinds of massive avoidable problems to persist. Obviously with the way things are now its hard to even take care yourself and your loved ones much less try to tackle these massive problems on a global scale but I think if the responsible and strong willed citizens of the world were to make up their minds to band together and make a change you would see things start to happen. Unfortunately I don't see that happening anytime soon. Which is very sad because that means more of the same with this system which is obviously not working. And that much more likely that the next there is a war or a crime or a disease the victim could be you or someone you love.
