Ignorance Is Not Bliss
Ignorance is said to be bliss
But is it?
Surely there must be something inside us
something screaming, "Why are you not looking around?!"
Instead of acknowledging a homeless man starving
or the children in front of the store collecting money for children in Haiti
most of us will just look the other way
As people we have the ability to help others
and there is no reason
there is no excuse
as to why we cannot take a second of our day buying a meal for a homeless man
or dropping at least a penny in a donation box for children in Haiti
There is no survival of the fittest
nor are the rich superior to the poor
If people continue to look the other way then they have lost their sense of humanity
they have disconnected from the world
because they have neglected to acknowledge the people in it that needed their help
One can have all the riches and fame
but they will never truly be happy unless they invest their money and power into something meaningful
It is time that we stop thinking of ourselves and start investing our time into helping others
because if people remain ignorant
they will never know bliss
