I Am Blind….


At this previous post, Today Is A Beautiful Day, But I Cannot See…, the Power of Words are portrayed in a sequence of graphic drawings.

I received this YouTube video from an old friend which is a scripted video of a blind man on the street, genteel begging for some dimes and quarters.
The world may still have a lot of sad stories to tell, there are still many horrors of terrorism occurring daily, there are still a lot of corrupt dictators and heads of government robbing the nation of its wealth, plundering and raping the lands and depriving the natives of its harvests, there are still a lot of religious bigots who believe in only their own religion while condemning others and there are still a lot of racist who thought that the world owes them a living.  There are still a lot of people who treated those less-fortunate and handicapped people with disdain. There are still a lot of people who torture and maim lovely and harmless animals. And the list goes on.

But out there, it is still a beautiful world.  I believe that more than 99.99 percentile of the world is still populated by those who believe that religion divides while spirituality unites, that to respect each other religion is the true measure of the worthiness of a man or woman, that this 99.99 percentile have compassion, empathy, sympathy, love and kindness for their human fellow beings more so for those less fortunate, that despotic dictators, corrupt government servants and terrorists will have their own calling one day, that one day the world will live in peace and harmony among the Homo Sapiens and the animal kingdom.
