  1. Sometimes I question the countryโ€™s government in so called Third World Counties. Britain is on its knees overwhelmed by its own social problems and the amount of illegal immigrants coming in too. We have always sent huge sums of money abroad which other countries have relied on. In Britain we have working families relying on Foodbanks. I never imagine that happening along with our NHS running on empty and a shortage of affordable housing ๐Ÿ˜ข


  2. Poor babes. I feel for all the helpless – young, old and in between. I can’t believe people in Canada whine and complain – especially when our government tries to step up to help those who are so desperately in need. It is sad and embarrassing.

    • I know what you mean. Sometimes it feels like everyone is so ungrateful and ungracious. Accountability is a rarity and it seems sharing is from the rich and privileged back or between the rich and privileged! It would just take so little to stop so much of the suffering…

  3. Because we don’t care, we suffer. When we care we are happy. That’s the hopeful perspective for possible change and I think there is a gradual increase in awareness already. But it is so important to further learn, practice, and share. Thanks for sharing!!:-) all the best!

    • I agree for me, and obviously you too – caring and helping make me feel good but I don’t think everyone feels like that. Unfortunately we don’t all see or feel the same needs, wants, desires or contentment. I hope I’m wrong. I just see many following money at the risk of everything else, values have changed and all earthlings are jeopardized because of one kind – Mankind…

      • Thanks a lot for your comment. There is a difference in between the individual and group level. All people have a potential ‘good’ and ‘dark’ side. It is the “irrational” group and societal behavior that needs to be addressed, because currently, it rewards a one-sided competitive capitalism, which is exploiting people and the planet, as you say, in a dangerous way. Other values than money could be emphasized more and perpetuated for the benefit of all. People will follow as they socially learn, but maybe some more destruction needs to happen to make this path more apparently a more human, attractive and politically feasible one. Role models creating awareness and examples are key in that process. In that sense, thanks for your work too, like your recent post https://kaitkingthewriter.wordpress.com/2017/04/03/monetize-me-or-dehumanize-me/

      • Absolutely, and yes we have placed value on shiny things instead of real things. I can only hope for change. It’s good to find like-minded people! ๐Ÿ˜Š Thank YoU!


  4. It’s even more shocking when you consider how enough is produced to feed and clothe everyone on this small planet but no-one wants to because it would reduce profits for the elite. We need to stop and look around at the grief we are causing, war and hate have had their time. Let’s give peace a chance to heal the broken, feed the poorest and provide them with an escape route. Feed them now while giving the children opportunities to learn, educate those old enough to earn what it means to feed and clothe themselves. We can do it together so let’s try.
    Love and peace Kait xoxo
