THE KIND OF WORLD WE HAVE TODAY

Today, we live in a world that demands urgency. People are always in hurry. We want immediate gratification of our urges and desires. If not satisfied, we're hurt. Hence, we fail to enjoy the goodness of life.


Today, we live in a world of violence and chaos. Bombings in the diferent parts of the globe and suicidal attacks frighten the whole citizenry. To localized this scenario, malls such as Glorietta and SM have been the target of terrorist attacks. Worse than this was the blast that had happened just recently in the Batasan. Yes, even the House of Representatives of the Republic of the Philippines, which is supposed to have a tight security measures to protect our beloved legislators, is not free from such violence.


Today, we live in a world whose governments have been instruments of corruption. The moment we entered the society, we agreed to bound ourselves together for our betterment and thus establishing a government that would protect us and build a just and humane society and administration of justice. Unfortunately, more often than not, we are just blinded by the masquerades of those who occupy the bureaucracy. Corrupt government officials should be thrown into the dungeons of lions and tigers alike.


Today, we live in a world of mediocrity. People seem to be satisfied with the average and mediocre things this life offers. "In the first place, why should work hard and excel if I am contented with what I have?", argues the person. This is foolishness. We are created for excellence. Each one of us has the potential to soar above the skies like an eagle. But one thing that we must always remember: just remain humble.


Now, what then? To you, my dear reader, I am telling you: you can make a difference. Do whatever is true, pure, and noble. You have your conscience. Use your conscience. You have your God. He created you according to His image. He may be your Guide always.
