The Listening...

(Photo from Facebook)

I believe this is what is missing from our society, today - The Listening. 

Everyone is so hell-bent on getting THEIR issue/agenda to the front of everyone's mind; that NOBODY is listening to each other. People are just taking sides in the frenzy; and Truth appears to be irrelevant.

I'm not saying either side is lying; but why ARE there "sides"??! Not to take ANYTHING away from #BLM, in any way; but bottom-line, we ARE all in this life, together!!!

Change DOES need to happen - but it will not until EVERYONE starts listening.

Our Country is only 244 years old. By most world standards, we are a baby. Babies must be taught; and then as they grow, learn from their mistakes - to take responsibility for them. THAT is the ONLY way true growth will happen.

We are getting further and further apart, daily (btw, the media is NOT helping); and if we ALL don't step up, it will not stop.

I spent the first 30 years of my life not saying much; the last 28 doing a LOT of talking - finding out who I was, what I needed, etc.

Now, life has brought me to a balance, of sorts. I am able to listen - and am ready to help others get to their "listen-time", too.

I know this post isn't a solve-all; but wouldn't it be a great place to start??!

Have a good day, and be safe... #2020seeclearly
