I wait for the day…

I wait for the day true equality blankets the globe. Where there are only have’s, no have not’s.

The day children don’t starve in one country yet struggle with obesity in another.

The day corporations are not allowed to infect politics and write the laws which cause the suffering of so many all for the sake of profit.

The day worldwide health care is everyone’s right, not a privilege for those who can afford it.

The day we get past our need to endlessly consume without restraint. When we strike a healthy, sustainable balance with nature.

The day we realize our full potential as a species, and treat our fellow species with the same respect we show ourselves.

The day our years of scientific endeavors allows us to surpass the limits of today and allows for the exploration of the vast expanse of the universe.

I wait for that day.

I like to write. To observe human nature. To envision what the future might hold. Fingers crossed for immortality and friendly dragons capable of both speech and interstellar travel.

    You put that into words well. Despite studying social policy and social stratification as one of my modules at Uni, I still can’t seem to express my feelings like you have other than to say something lame like “I want equality and for humanity to respect the earth.” See – lame 🙂
