Some of you might say, the world is fine right now. We are so much better off than the medieval times, when there used to be wars all the time. One nation attacking the other, killing and looting the inhabitants, was a common site. At least we don’t have to face that now. Not most of us anyways. Something is going on in the gulf countries, and it sounds depressing, but we don’t need to bothered by that. Right? We have our own lives, our own goals and our own family and friends to keep us busy getting through our lives.
Well. Firstly, we must keep our eyes peeled and our ears open all the time. Sometimes, we just ignore the small crimes that happen around us, but these small things only come together and are the reason behind discontent. Whether it is posting something demeaning on Facebook, or sharing a racist joke on Whatsapp, we all play our part in destroying the peace and harmony of this world. The best part of this is that we are totally unaware of it. We think that it is all very normal. People should just relax and take it easy. No use getting all emotional and angry over these small things. There are so many big problems in this world, like hunger and unemployment to solve.
But sometimes, people do make the small issues really huge for no reason at all. They demand respect and appreciation from other people and when the other person is rude or hurts their feelings, they go all crazy. Well it is not fair, is it. When you do the same thing to the other people, you are doing it just for fun and relaxation. Just to calm your nerves after a hard day of work, but when some other person, most likely just like you, does that, you get all angry and annoyed. That is ego, my friends. It has cost a lot many lives in the past and will continue to do so. But it is not like we don’t have a solution. We do have a solution to everything, we are humans after all. The most intelligent race on this planet.
The solution, in my opinion, and mind it, it is just my opinion. You have all the right to agree and disagree to it and speak up and put your points. The solution, is this. Don’t be silent. Speak up. Whenever you see something wrong happening around you, make the people who are doing it realize the fault in their thinking and you will not be alone in this. That much you need to trust in your fellow humans. People will join you in making things right. People need a leader. You can be that leader. Yes you. The one reading this article on your phone, while sitting all alone in your room.
You may be thinking, why should I care. I don’t even know the person being bullied that well, or maybe the person who is doing wrong is your friend, and you fear that the group will case you out. Well, let me tell you this. They will realize their mistake if you point it out and they will respect you. There is some goodness in everyone’s heart and you can be the one to bring it out. If you keep your mouth shut and let the wrong thing happen in front of you, you are just as much guilty of this crime as the one committing it. You are approving fot it and that is giving that person the courage to commit that crime on the helpless person.
So, please, I plead in the name of humanity and our dying breed. Next time, you see your dad disrespecting your mother or your best friend bullying a puny kid, or some mean and popular girls making a girl feel inferior, don’t let it just happen. Raise your voice and let the weak know that they are not alone and the strong that they are using their strength wrongly.
