We did well, but we can do better
Always room for improvement right? of course. Improvement has been part of the innovation formula from day one. The human race is full of brilliant minds without doubt. Look how far we have come with architecture, technology, education and much more. We walk this earth with computers that fit in our pockets. We have developed vehicles that run on electric instead of gas. We’ve been to the moon, built pyramids and flew across the sky with the invention of planes. Surely, sky is the limit and nothing can hold us back except our very own imagination.
With all the wondrous inventions we have today, one cant help but wonder what will come next. How can we possibly top our current state and become even better? Here’s an idea, help others in dire need. With the iPhone, we are able to access and do certain task we were once only able to do from a desktop. The upgrade in television resolution has brought clearer more entertaining visuals we can enjoy from the comfort of our home. The way we stay fit has become more comfortable with the technology of more breathable and sweat wicking clothing. The list can go on and on but this is not about what we have done, but more so what we can do and how we do it. With all the the gizmos and gadgets we have making our lives more productive, fun and easier, we still have a problem. The problem still exist and hasn’t subsided enough (at least to me) to truly have a positive affect.
How is it that we have so much but still have nothing? We are one, even though we all come from different parts of the world and speak a different language we still have the connection of being a human-being. With the abundance of advancements we continue to create, how are so many afflicted by poverty? How can children go hungry and fresh water not be available? I don’t want to hear “that’s just how the world is.” No its not just how the world is, its how we are. The world is not destroying itself, we are the cause and the solution to the worlds many problems. We have the power to change and make a difference, all we have to do is put forth the work. We are equal in species but not living. Some eat three times a day while others scavenge for scraps. Mansions provides a roof for the wealthy while the homeless search for shelter. I cant seem to fathom why some are better off than others. I’m not bickering about wants, I’m referring to needs; the bare necessities of everyday living. Clean water, shelter, clothing and food should be accessible to all and not something one would have to struggle for.
There is plenty of good in the world, I haven’t completely lost faith in humanity. There is an abundance of charities and organizations that dedicate every waken moment to a better cause, I just want those numbers to increase substantially. We invented the wheel, sliced bread, and the internet!! I think its time to create something greater, something far more meaningful that will put all the past accomplishments to shame. I’m no billionaire and I’m not the one to judge or tell someone what to do with their own money, but we have people who are beyond rich that can help a great deal from a financial standpoint. If all the millionaires and billionaires came together, we could build schools, construct some type of access to clean water, supply clothing, shelter, medical treatment and much more.
Progressive Being is all about bettering ourselves while doing the same for others. I feel success is much more profound and fervent when not only we as individuals make strides, but when we can bring along those less fortunate for the ride as well.
