The depressing thing about this daily prompt is that there are infinite things to write about like women’s equality issues, the recent increase in gun violence, Bloomberg…etc. I don’t think there will ever be a time when we stop having these kinds of issues until we learn to consider other people.
Growing up in a 3rd World Country allowed me to think about what was best for my family / community first. The self importance and indulgence we can get caught up in, of being American with the benefits that come along with that seriously makes regular people believe that their beliefs, morals and thoughts should be the standard for everyone else instead of a more “let’s agree to disagree” stance.
The people we come into contact with everyday have their own feelings and problems and they don’t want to be told by you to change their morals. Period. You’re not more qualified by them to make a decision for their own lives. As long as there is no harm done to another person and you are respectful and compassionate I think it would solve most of our societal issues.
