A life lesson.

We are all in this together.

So often we forget so. As Westerners, namely Americans, we neglect this ideal entirely. We are selfish, intentionally ignorant and mean. I don't know whom we hate more, ourselves or each other. We pretend to hate "terrorists" and crime and evil, but these are just stereotypes that make life easier.

So quick to point fingers, without thought. We are the most irresponsible society in current existence. We worry more about our financial obligations than our social ones. By tending to our neighbors first we not only create good karma, but also relieve ourselves of ego and thus create better selves. Compassion is key. We overlook this constantly. It makes me sad.
