Halfway through 2020 and we have gone (and still going through) with the following:
- Wild Fire in Australia; destroyed the ecosystem
- Tensed War in the Middle East; Iran vs USA after an Iranian General was killed in Iraq
- Coronavirus spread from Wuhan, China
- Brexit- United Kingdom withdraws from the European Union
- Locusts destroyed crops in Africa
- Looting and Rioting in the USA against Racism
This is, of course, not to include the issues that we have long faced and have now intensified:
- Unemployment rate rises as economies strain from impact of the virus
- Healthcare systems collapse
- Poverty is on high toll
- Education systems transition from physical to online learning strain on 3rd world countries
We all had our hopes for 2020. According to Numerology, 2020 calls for positive outlook in preparation for the changes that will occur. The consequences gets worst as you go down the social ladder, as money has played the part of being the cushion of power versus impending doom. Several (if not unlimited) options are for the rich- the poor only think of surviving, while the middle class remains the backbone of the economy.
Six months in and there is no saying that it will get better soon, in fact, the future is set to bring more challenges that will yank humanity out of the normal routine we are used to. Expect more eruptions to come that will shake us to our core, but it will also come to stop. The timeline is unknown, but I have finally foreseen a positive possibility. When this comes, we have to seize it and learn our lessons from the events that crushed us.
It is the time for us to destroy the social triangle and make it a circle instead. We need to pay kindness forward to survive the rest to come. It must start with us; You, the ordinary man, in order to break this cycle. The rich may hold sway in this world, but we hold the real power. We are the laborers, the minds, the ideas, the actions. We are the ones who can make an impact and start the positive effect. I cannot say that we can cleanse the world of our prejudices; this is something that we should continue fighting for throughout the generations as it is honed into our characters and we cannot just expect that tomorrow will be perfect. But at least- at least we have stood up against it and create the chain of action that will put an end to it in the future. If you have privileges, whether it be by money, race, or identity- this is the call for you to know your role.
In your own way, make the change. Ask for the change. Be the change.
