re-discovered it. I didn't post it at the time but on re-reading it, I
found it impactful. In the first sentence I reference 'those people.'
So a fair question would be to ask 'Who are those people?' But let me
avoid the question. I would much rather you fill in the blank
yourself. Let me just say that I have found 'those people' everywhere
I have gone.
Sometimes I want to shout at those people. Stand up! Don't you know
you're human? Don't you know how special that makes you! Don't you
know how powerferful you are? We are the stewards of the world! We can
think and feel and create! Stand up! Why are you just sitting there!
Don't you know what you are, what you can do, the freedom you have?
Don't you see life in all its richness and texture laid out before
you? Don't you want to protect that, admire it and enhance it? Stand
up! Why are you sitting down! This life now is the chance you have
to... do something. Don't be passive. Don't be nothing. Don't you know
you're human? Don't you know what that means?
