Today we are living in a world full of competition, the world that is full of nothing but injustice: They call it the new order.In our day and age, wars, conflict, and political strife are all too common. Because of this, sometimes it is extremely hard to feel goodwill and offer help to those in need.
However, even the extreme small acts of kindness can make us feel more positive emotions than anything else in the world.Capitalism is everywhere, that what makes us human is disappearing into an abyss never to be rescued.Its a man eat man society which was once a theory.
It’s the same old ‘proverb’ the rich gets richer, and the poor gets poor, which is now the order of the day.I walk downtown and what I see is Piccadilly Circus.Humans have tarnished the timeless beauty of mother nature.The point I want to drive home is: Lets us retain that element that makes us human.
Let us be our brothers and sisters keeper,& this is only possible if you are with me on a course to bring down those noncompos mates walls we’ve built.
I wonder when folks tell me’You know what ducknet,I hate that guy,’I reply ‘I get amazed.’Am not trying to act holier that thou but I came to realize that I have that minimum threshold of what makes me love you as human.We must cherish the ideals of our existence, constructive politics and whatever encompasses humanity.
In my previous article, I talked about how art makes us understand what we are, through photographs we can understand ourselves better.
I did not write this article from heaven.
we have humans who go beyond borders and show unconditional love to humanity, these are people I cherish, and they inspire every single part of me to do good despite the evil that surrounds us.
That’s why I’ve compiled this brilliant images that live in me:
