I just watched “Hotel Rwanda” For the first time. It was hard to watch, but it made me realize even more how lucky I am. “Hotel Rwanda” is about the genocide of the Tutsi’s in 1994. This has also helped to motivate myself to do as much as I can to help those less fortunate. To stand up for what is right not just for me and mine but for all humanity. I am tired of being afraid, of the hate that has run rampant through this world. I feel we as Humans need to join together to stop the fear, and hatred.
There will always be those who will feed on the weak minded, the poor, and the other. What we can do is minimize the control they have. How can we do this? You might ask.
1. Stop putting profits before people
2. Be kind to one another even when it is hard to do so.
3. Get to know people of different races, cultures and religions.
4. FInd our positive similarities and build on them.
5. Start to build an atmosphere of cooperation instead of winner take all.
We all share this planet together. None of us is better than the other, we all have strengths and weaknesses that can help us build a better world for the future us all.
To some empathy, kindness, and caring are seen as a weakness. They would even consider me a bleeding heart. I say fine let them I WOULD RATHER HAVE A BIG BLEEDING HEART THAN NO HEART AT ALL.
Why do I post what I post on my facebook? It is because I feel that we should have as much information as possible, to better understand the world we live in and hope come up with ideas to make this world a better place for all; not just a few.
Though the Rwandan conflict has has been over for 20 years these old rivalries can always pop up, as we can see here in the states. We see how Trump is rallying white white supremacist around the country. Even if Trump does not win the presidency the fire will still burn with in these people. This is why we must stand together for the RIGHTS OF ALL HUMANS. This way they can not feed the anger, fear, rage, and hatred that comes with little education, high poverty, and desperation.
WE MUST FINALLY REALIZE THAT WE ARE ALL BROTHERS AND SISTERS ON THIS PLANET, AND STAND TOGETHER AS ONE TO FINALLY ACHIEVE PEACE AND PROSPERITY FOR ALL in this time and well into the future.
