The standard today has become, What can I get from you? Where is my piece of the pie?’ We have quickly become greedy and moved from ‘Ask not what your country can do for you. Ask what you can do for your country!’ to, ‘I want! I need! What’s in it for me?’
Not that long ago an entire generation of men and women stood up and said, ‘We will not go quietly!! Where can we help? How can we fight this war??’ That was World War 2, fought on many shores from 1939 to 1945. Six years of ‘I want to help!’ was the standard. Now? That is considered substandard.
We need to once again become a humanity of givers. Not just one nation, not just one group of people, but ALL HUMANITY! I promise you, when we raise the standard to that level and quit living this Poor me, what’s in it for me? Lifestyle, everyone would thrive in life. Why do we have substandard conditions for so many right now? Because we need every single person alive to raise the standard and say, ‘I have enough! What can I give you today?’ When that happens, substandard will be erased because if everyone is doing it, it becomes the standard.
