The State of Things as They Are

“We are, as a group of individuals, comprised of such an utterly grand and infinite possible use of our time, our efforts, our love, our strength, our compassion, anything that we deem to be a positive presence within our deepest reaches of longing. Yet, it is often that we choose not from the array of fulfilling, positive and enlightening actions that would lift another's spirits in a time of need. We, as a collective, have lost our hope for the world. Instead of helping a neighbor, we steal from him or spread destructive rumors of him, and what purpose does this serve?

We as a people have lost touch with one another and in doing so have began to harm our own kind as well as everything around us. The world needs more people who help without expectation because they know its the right thing to do.
