Most of us are crossing over from one season to another, in different parts of the world. Some may travel to other parts of the globe to escape the harshness in one. It is nice and predictable. It keeps us busy preparing for the next course of action, and yet another.
What happens when we see nothing at the other end?
That is today’s one-word prompt to challenge your thinking, folks…
According to some the gap between the haves and have nots is unbridgeable. They usually are those people who have created this gap. Right now the divide between the rich and the poor is widening into a chasm and the middle class, which is the most important part of the society, is shrinking rapidly.
The statistics say that the top 5% of world population holds around 75% of the total wealth of the world, while 95% of population holds the rest of 25% of the wealth. ( Source; Wikipedia)
So apparently, it seems that indeed this gap is unbridgeable.
But is that really so?
Can we not share the resources and funds with those in desperate need of them?
It really is not an impossible task. We just need to think humanely. As they say “sharing is caring” But do we really care?
Do we care that millions of people go hungry every day?
Do we care that millions of children cannot go to school because they can’t afford the cost of education?
Do we care that people fall sick everyday because they don’t have clean drinking water?
The number of philanthropic people and organizations working to better the lives of these people are not enough to make a significant impact on the situation.
We need more people to join in in the efforts.
We need more awareness.
We need to care more!
Do we care?
Incorporate the word in your piece – be it fiction, poetry, essay, anecdotes, memories or any other format that you choose. It is okay, if you do not include the word, but capture the spirit and let it reflect in your work.
