Lend a helping hand!

I would like to send my condolences and heartfelt sympathies to any and all individuals affected by the recent earthquakes and tsunamis that hit Japan and the surrounding area.  It is a times like these that we as the human race need to band together and help those less fortunate.
Please take into consideration the multitudes of people that have been devastated by earthquakes, tsunamis, hurricanes, and other natural disasters as of late.  I would hate to sound preachy and say this is evidence of apocalyptic tidings, but what other conclusions can be drawn from these recent misfortunes befalling our world.
These are warnings, from who I don’t even want to take a guess, and the reason, I pass on inputting my thoughts on that as well.  The only thing I know for sure is that we need to all look at ourselves and decide whose side we are on.  Are we going to side with money, greed, and power, or are we going to side with people.  I know that I am on the side of people because we all should help each other and not just serve self.
“Every man must decide whether he will walk in the light of creative altruism or in the darkness of destructive selfishness.”   Martin Luther King, Jr.

Through altruism we will create a social society designed on the betterment of all, instead of the advancement of few.  My dollar is your dollar, my bread is your bread, and my fulfillment is your fulfillment.  These things are true when the need of the many is respected and honoured and outweighs the wants of the few.

Look in your own city and you will see the blight that has corrupted us.  From reports of CEO’s robbing their workers’ pensions, from cities firing employees as political pawns to anger communities to action, or even bloggers trying to make examples of certain individuals and taking a blind eye to the corruptness of others.
We have to get over the trappings of this world as they are fragile and easily broken, as these recent disasters have taught us, and we need to start lending a helping hand to our brothers.

“If a man shuts his ears to the cry of the poor, he too will cry out and shall not be answered.”  Proverbs 21:13

"And when you hear of wars and rumors of wars, do not be alarmed. This must take place, but the end is not yet. For nation will rise against nation, and kingdom against kingdom. There will be earthquakes in various places; there will be famines. These are but the beginning of the birth pains. “But be on your guard. For they will deliver you over to councils, and you will be beaten in synagogues, and you will stand before governors and kings for my sake, to bear witness before them." Mark 13:7-9

So be on the lookout for your chance to help in your communities because the best place to start is at home and then work outwards.  We in Florida have been very lucky in the recent years as to have averted many a natural disaster that have been in our path.  Be blessed and pass it on!
