The older I get, the more I hear my parents speak when I open MY mouth. And sometimes it’s annoying. Other times, I feel so incredibly blessed to have been raised by two very compassionate and considerate people.
I cannot, for the life of me, understand how some people were raised lacking the values my parents taught me. Respect, kindness, consideration, courtesy, and other values that seem to be disappearing before our eyes. Regardless of religion, one major principle that exists is to treat others how you wish to be treated. Yet so many people treat others with such disrespect, such ignorance. It’s disgusting. It’s disheartening.
I am doing everything I can to teach my children the same values, but I’ll be damned if the people around me aren’t contradicting my every lesson each and every day. How are we supposed to handle this? How does one person fight the masses? What has happened to our world?
I know this blog is mostly my poetry and has very few followers (which is just fine with me!!), but I needed a place to speak on this topic and not be chastised by others. So if you don’t agree with my thoughts, by all means keep on moving. However, if you do, reblog this!!! I cannot be the only one feeling this way.
