Before, I was not very enthusiastic when power outage and slow broadband connection combined to disrupt my internet use. You could say I was often furious.
Lately, I have come to accept the reality that progress and development do not ensure that my satisfaction will be achieved. Or, it will ever be.
Why my sudden turnaround? Mine is just a trivial concern compared to global problems.
News of ongoing wars keep me wondering if we will see the day when this home planet of ours is finally at ease. We quarrel about land, influence, commerce and almost everything we humans believe as important to stay ahead. We never learn from previous mistakes. We continue our errant ways.
Say, we achieve all we crave for. Then, what? Happy now?
However, have we asked ourselves why we cannot stay united for the common good of mankind? Instead, we seem to indulge the opposite. We create reasons to make war not peace. Sometimes, I feel, we silently gloat at the misfortunes of others.
I have many faults as a human being. I will also admit that I am scared of the day we will destroy our home because of our unnatural malice.
But, I pray that I will be proven wrong. That, the good in us will finally prevail in the end.
