Society Edition Weekend Coffee Share
As we sit down to enjoy our favorite beverage, I want to ask how your week went. Did you get done the things you had planned? Were there steps to in improve your character or some other challenge? What does this have to do with society? I asked myself the same question. I was working on my book, Forging Character, and I kept coming across quotes and stories demonstrating the importance of personal good character on society.
I hope you are doing well and that you are making daily improvements in your life. If you are having challenges, as we all do at times, leave a comment or email me so we can chat. I don’t have all the answers, but perhaps I can help you find your own.
Do not put on your political blinders. What follows is NOT a political commentary, but some thoughts on our society today.
It’s Gene’O’s fault
Okay, not really, but some our conversations via Facebook prompted me to think about this topic a bit more. Looking at our political landscape today, it is extremely clear that society is sorely lacking. I’m not taking a political side because I feel that none of them are tenable.
Is this society’s (all of us) fault? In some respects it must be. Can we change it? Absolutely, emphatically YES! Will it be easy? Certainly not. Change will require all of us to help. And dare I say, that such change will require us to change ourselves. I can not change the world. I can not change you. I can only change myself and hope that I can influence others enough to want to change themselves as well.
