We Need To Heal The Cause, Not The Symptoms!

Nothing more to add to this! I was waiting for this post for a couple of days now as I knew Erika was working on it. I think it’s exceptional!

After the terrible happenings in the past weeks, I thought a lot about what causes people to act in violent, disrespectful, arrogant, devastating, hatred ways. Yes, it is racism, frustration, fanaticism. But those are only the symptoms. But what is the cause for such aggression and hatred against innocent people? I know this is a very delicate subject and I don’t claim to know the solution. There is so much about it. But to me, there are three important possible causes standing out.

I might get myself into dangerous territory here. But there is one thing that I need to get off my chest. Actually I already did a little while ago with this post.

Live And Let Live

It just annoys me when people can’t accept someone else’s opinion, just because it is different to theirs. I am not saying that we all have to agree with each other. Not at all. I guess it would make life pretty boring if we would all think alike. But what is wrong in having a different opinion? Why do some people think everyone must agree with their ideas?

It is one thing to argue about a different opinion but getting to the point where you threaten others that is just plain sad… To say the least.

You don’t have to put a knife in front of me to threaten me. Your words can be enough. So choose! And choose wisely. I understand that not everyone tries to live after the three words acceptance, tolerance and respect. But I am still convinced that the world would be a much better place if people would incorporate them in their lives.

Before you speak, before you write, choose your words wisely. Think about what they might do to others and never underestimate the power of words.
