On one hand ✋🏾
We agree that it is valuable
But of course it is
We’ve worked pretty hard to improve its quality
Groundbreaking medicine, luxurious shelter, subsistence farming and enhancing practices
For those of us who are lucky
We get to create it
And just to make sure it isn’t threatened
We’ve managed to create metals to defend it
Most of us, admittedly or not, will take someone else’s in able to keep ours
On the other hand 🖐🏾
We destroy it so mercilessly
We determine its value base on skin color, religious beliefs, gender identification, cultural practices, level of education, and other irrelevant circumstances
We allow jealousy, envy, greed and hatred to cloud our judgment
And somehow, always find a justification for our impudence
So my question is
Why do we get to dictate to start or end of someone else’s?
Why do we get to decide when it is valuable or when it isn’t?
I love mine and I want it to exist for as long as possible
Just like you do, right?
So, if we both agree
Then, Why can’t we stop 🛑
