    The world would be better run by children then our current leadership.

  2. When I see this suffering of human beings , of children, I wonder where are the philanthropists, the corporations rushing forward to rebuild material structures, The suddenly charitable wealthy doling out millions to reconstruct buildings, I wonder when we lost our lost our priorities, our empathy for humanity.

  4. Good question. Not quite as glamorous a topic as a medieval structure.

  5. Sigh. Unfortunately, I think it’s only going to get worse.

    Poverty and starvation are the force of exodus and conflict. The future promises widespread starvation from the loss of arable land, living space, and water sources. What if we addressed this with the same vigor we seek a cure for cancer and heart disease?

    • People don’t want to face those problems and would rather believe they don’t exist. I don’t know how to make it real until it’s too late. No one wants to hear about it, let alone face the hard cold facts. They don’t even want to talk about the bees and what their demise will do to our no longer existing food supply. I wish I had answers. When the shelves are bare and they are hungry, maybe then they’ll ask what happened or BLAME someone else for not stopping it from happening. I don’t have faith in people. They are crying and praying for a building but don’t care about starving kids, raped and beaten women, pollution, climate change, inequality, agism, racism and all the things that actually MATTER to everyday life. Money will pour in for a bunch of bricks but no one will do anything about the other issues. If we become extinct, at least the planet and any remains life forms can regroup and finally have some peace.

        We are a strange animal indeed. We strain at the gnat and swallow the camel. What I do is recognize that I can do something if only a small part. I find an organization that actually does good work and puts most of the funds they receive into the work they do. I give to these people what I can. For myself, I believe small acts of kindness change lives and so for those less fortunate, I show them kindness in meaningful ways. Others often follow. We are followers with few leaders. One good example can spread rapidly but it is too much to hope for a miracle, instead I hope that the blessing of mercy and compassion will change lives; those of the giver and receiver.

  7. I agree. I try to do the same thing. I just think our problems are enormous and time i running out. One at a time isn’t going to save our oceans, or us, for the matter. Still, it’s what we can do and that’s all there is. Thank you so very much for your lovely comments.

  8. It is so true. And what feels even more tragic is that “humanity” seems to have lost the ability to empathize with others. Most don’t even want to bother making the effort, or even imagine what it’s like to be in another’s situation. It is the “glorious history” of humans…

    • I know what you mean. Electronics are more important than heartbeats. Buildings more important than living beings. Everything seems backward. The path we’re on doesn’t lead to anything good, in my opinion.

    A LOT OF “STICKY FINGERS” ON BOTH SIDES OF THE POLITICAL AISLE…CONTINUE TO SOAK MOST OF IT UP! 😦
