If you could...


I was thinking last night, as I sat and worked, if I could do anything in the world, what would it be?
The first thought that I had was to have peace. I am not talking about "Miss America Peace" I am talking about inner peace, and giving everyone inner peace. If everyone in the world had peace in their life the world would be a better place.
I speak out for the rights of the people who are in the same profession that I am in. I spent the weekend going through a 74 page fax that was sent to me by this person who feels their rights have been trampled on by the government. As I go through the fax, my heart aches, because I know in my heart, this person has, daily, taken the rights from others who have no control on their life. I had to make a phone call, in a professional way, to let this person know that I cannot help them. She needs inner peace to acknowledge that what she has done is wrong, and another profession is probably what is on her plate right now. Yet, I wanted to scream out that she should be in jail for what she has done.
This morning I received an email (and if you are on my mailing list I forwarded it to you) that frightened me, and upset my newly found inner peace. It was a TV clip of a staged abduction of a child. As this child was screaming at the man who was "abducting" her, no one on the street would help. They staged this abduction in different places, and still, people would walk by, some would turn and look, but no one would help.
The worse part of this clip is, that finally when some young men proceeded to stop the abduction, they were the very men that, should I be walking down the street, I would have looked twice at, wondering what criminal activity they were up to. It is sad, but I have made up my mind that I cannot continue to stereotype people. It opened my eyes.
These are my thoughts for the day...what about yours?
