It's day twenty of the Blogtember Challenge link up organized by our lovely Bailey Jean of Brave Love Blog. Hasn't it been fun again this year? I can't believe we're almost three weeks through already! Only ten more days to go! Please catch up with my fellow bloggers all participating today, you'll find today's link up here.
Today's prompt: Something you wish more people knew or believed.
This prompt made me think honeys, there are so many things I wish for the world. Among them are:
- I passionately wish our elderly citizens were treated with the respect they deserved. Here in the UK our elderly ladies and gentlemen have worked all of their lives, paying their taxes, raising their families and are sometimes treated as an annoyance, even by their own families :/ TV and the press call them "bed blockers" and accuse them of taking up precious resources such as doctors appointments and hospital beds. I chat to our elderly customers at work and they can seem so lonely, many of my ladies might only have their pet to keep them company. If you ever see an elderly lady or gentleman sitting alone, why not say hello? chat even for a few minutes. It could mean the world to someone and might even be the only conversation they have that day.
- I wish life was fair. I wish good people never got hurt, I wish kindness wasn't seen as a weakness and exploited so cruelly by the unscrupulous. I wish no child was ever hurt or found themselves facing danger in the world. Ever. I wish cruelty toward animals did not exist anywhere. Ever. I wish every human took the time to look into the eyes of an animal and to see a beautiful, sentient soul looking back.
- I wish the world understood that some illnesses are invisible. I wish the world wasn't so quick to judge others or be so quick to write them off. I wish compassion, respect, kindness and empathy for others were universally taught from an early age and that no one should ever be forced to face life's occasional bumps in the road alone. I wish more people understood the power of a simple hug and that they never felt uneasy or hesitant when faced with another being who badly needs a friendly arm around them.
- I wish every child grew up knowing how special they are, that they are all awesome in their own way and that bullying, in all it's forms, would simply vanish from the world, never to be experienced again. I wish that no child ever feels left out or overlooked, that they all have an opportunity to reach their potential and to follow their dreams.
Till tomorrow dear ones, wishing you a world full of smiles, hugs and happiness always xxx
