I spent some time with my mom this weekend and I learned so much from her regarding the past. She recited stories about her life and I wondered " Could I have been so strong and survived." She talked about hard times that people of my generation haven't endured. Back then people had to do really hard labor to feed and take care of their families. They dealt with extreme racism and they had to use bathrooms for colored people. These people had so much against them but they fought hard to survive.
A lot of the things that we complain about don't match any of the trials and tribulations that they had to endure. What they had in their favor were family and neighbors who cared and was willing to lend a hand. Fighting, fussing and picking each other apart is never going to help us progress in our ever changing world.
We need God and we need each other. That is the key and the glue that will help our future generation to move forward. When we act negatively with our brother, sister or fellow man we create dissension and we move forward to destroying ourselves.
Next time you hear elderly people talk about the past, just listen and realize if they could make it in this world of uncertainty, you can also but you cannot make it alone.
Change your thinking and mindset and create the world that you want to live in. Peace dwells in all of us. Working together is the answer and love each other because God loves you and he will bless you for what is in your heart.
