The Future of Us All

I sat and thought about the future of all of us; as Jamaicans and as individuals living in the world.

I came to the conclusion that there is no hope left in the world. People no longer care and things will only get worse from herein. Nothing will ever change and forever remain the same; there is absolutely nothing any of us can do about it.

Still…wouldn’t it be great if one day we could wake up to see a world we’ve always dreamt of? If one day crime no longer became an issue in our country, communities or even our homes. If one day the people became first priority, instead of political self interest and who can do the better job. If one day opportunity truly existed for us all instead of saying it does when it doesn’t. If one day we started caring more about each other instead of only ourselves. If one day morality and integrity was the driving force of our nation and those who led it. If one day each person helped another better themselves and live a fulfilled life. If one day love for self and others was second nature. If one day the lives of our children and others were seen as the precious gifts they are. If one day we realized that we are all greatly made and therefore can achieve greatly. If one day we were no longer limited by what we think we can do but by what we know we have already done in the future?

Know what we have already done in the future??? How can you know what you have done if you haven’t done it yet? Simple, all it takes is a mere thought that it has already been accomplished; it’s just a matter of doing the action to support that thought. Every ‘What If’ started with a thought that led to a dream that became a reality. Martin Luther King said it best…”I have a dream”, not “I have a plan”, because plans can be broken, changed, strayed from or lead to inaction through difficult trials, but a dream is everlasting, it never dies only transforms to a reality.

What if we could all be “One nation under God, increase in beauty, fellowship and prosperity, and play our part to advance the welfare of the whole human race”…this is my dream.

What if we could make that one day right now? If we all came together as one; one goal, one nation, one future. All it takes is one person to believe, and I believe that it can be done, which is why I have sacrificed my life to seeing it happen.

One person, with one dream, making one step, one day at a time.

At least think about it.

All the Best.

Give others hope, pass on the message so that others can believe too.
