It takes a long time for change to happen

July 23, 2021

Because it takes a long time for change to happen, it’s important to prepare for as early as possible.  Martin Luther King Jr. was born long after slavery ended, but he still dreamed of equality and there are still people dreaming of the day when race becomes as significant as eye color.  M.L.K. devoted his life to change understanding that he probably wouldn’t see the promised land but just like planting seeds, it takes time and effort for anything to happen.  With that time and effort, the fruits can be beneficial to generations and even produce more seeds to go on benefiting for generations.

Seeds for social change can be planted now to put an end to the divisiveness in society by remembering how to work together, instead of against each other in competition.  The roots of our social structure are based on cooperation, which is why we have cities of families and not family territories.  The rat race mentality we currently have, only pits one individual against another and destroys the empathy and compassion in society.  In a rat race, there are no winners because even rich people have problems, only money isn’t one.  Just because people have emotions there will always be suffering in society but when we adjust our perspectives and work for love instead of money we can plant the seeds for a society were, even with all the problems in life at least society will not be a problem for anyone of any class or race.
