Who? What? When? Where? And most often than not, we forget to ask Why? Why not and that is the question? Some of us are preoccupied with who said this and what was said, but never ask why or what led to what was said or the circumstances. Some shy away from involvement in community programs benefiting all of us. Instead, they criticize. It is religiously common for us to ask whom, but not why? It is easy for us to criticize or point fingers and quite often, forget that he who criticizes another womanís son should bring out his owns motherís son who is perfect. It takes time and effort to serve in organizations and requires civility to deal with the community. Both the rulers and the ruled need maturity and understanding to work together.
Maturity and understanding indicate growth needed within our community. We come together to enjoy ourselves, have peace, camaraderie, development of human minds and so on. When we meet, it is someoneís responsibility to organize our programs without financial gains. What does it benefit a church mouse to live in an empty church? Nothing. Yet we still find them in empty church buildings. I donít believe thereís any financial gains in serving in most community organizations, yet people volunteer their time, energy and in most cases, their money to serve. We need to support the people willing to sacrifice their time, energy and money for the benefit of the community. We need to learn to appreciate instead of criticizing. Learn to give thanks instead of complaining. Learn to recognize instead of bracing ourselves with, or insinuating unfounded innuendoes that destroy instead of bonding.
I thought we had a wonderful convention in Los Angeles, California, for someone to conceive the notion, not to mention that enough time was not allotted to dancing was unfair and improper. A review of the convention video would prove wrong, the individuals floating that news and they should give the deserving credit instead of criticizing.
We should not occupy ourselves with who or what, rather keep open minds and learn to accommodate each other. If you can not serve, help or support those serving, donít be judgmental and presumptuousness should be ruled out.
