It’s difficult to think of the state of the world in crisis as a blessing. But maybe it is, maybe it is a wake up call to us. The earth seems to be revolting in climate because of how we foolishly and selfishly pollute it. People are now up in arms because so few follow the golden rule to treat others as they wish to be treated. Wars rage on with no accountability, inhumanity flourishes, plague spreads, and some think this can all be solved by hateful acts of violence and self important so-called righteous actions. Will we wake up, take stock of what we’ve done and how we came to this? Is there hope? Maybe there is, maybe we will realize we need to change, maybe it could possibly be a blessing.
