I love people. Small ones, smiling ones, old ones, crying ones, thinkers, believers, emotional ones, the ones who are striving and the people who try even if they don`t have to. There is much pain in this world, there are far to many people suffering and fighting for a life that we sometimes take for granted.
Some of these people, I see in my office. Most of them are truly lovely people, that had bad experiences and had to live with that, without anyone to protect them. Some of the most vulnerable humans are the small ones, those who think that if something goes wrong, it must be their fault. If father hits mother, the kid too often thinks: I should have stopped it! Maybe if I`ve been better?
We care about people close to us, and when we open our eyes for the first time, we expect good things. Those eyes drink in the world around them and form what they think of it, shape how their future will be. There are so many ways to live a life, so many cultures and traditions that mold and shape our coming generations, so lets be sure that what they know of the world, is that we appreciate every single human being, we do everything to take care of them, lets show that instead of war we believe in problem-solving, compromise and working together.
Last year I watched a documentary called world peace and other 4th-grade achievements. It’s a optimistic, wonderful movie, based on John Hunters idea that maybe we should try to teach our children and followers, how to do good. He invented a game based on reality, where children had to learn how to negotiate so that everyone was happy and got a bit of what they wanted. The game consisted of real problems, like where to get food, water and other resources without going to war. The movie is now, unfortunately, only available if you order it specifically from educational reasons, but you can hear John talking about the idea here:
I wish everyone a good day. Take care of the people around you, remember that every good word you say to somebody might be a change for the better.
