When the doorbell rang, I looked through the peep hole. There was a little person from the neighborhood standing there, so I unbolted the door and opened it. “Can Mary come and play?” “She isn’t here today.” “Then, can you come and play?”
What is wrong with this picture? Are the parents not home, or not able to be?
Years ago there was a lot of interaction in the community. There are places today “that” still happens. They didn’t lock their doors. The biggest worry wasn’t what would the neighbors take, but what they would leave, cucumbers, squash, apples, etc. Children were safe back then.
People were open and friendly, and would help each other. Today older people are afraid to open their doors to strangers and young people. If young people come to your door, what might happen to you, or what might happen to them?
The basics to a moral community are:
Don’t steal from others.
Don’t hurt other people.
Help your families.
Care about others.
Have respect for others.
Do good. Do Right. That affects others and their actions. Then it continues to reach out, and others want to do good, too.
Wouldn’t it be nice if we could trust each other, and count on each other? That is what makes the world a better place.
What is the opposite. The way the world is now, we don’t have to look far to see how bad it is. Let’s all work towards “Peace on earth to men of good will”. We all need to work towards improving our own lives, family, neighborhoods, and the world.
