My fellow humans, this is not good.
There is so much happening in the world. There are some that are so engrossed in their own lives that they neither realize how well off they are nor how grand this world really is. This is a most sad sight my eyes perceived as I entered the lunchroom at work just minutes ago.
Every so often, our company hosts dine and discover events wherein employees come to listen to speakers on various topics. There was one held last night, and food remaining from the event was spread out on the tables in the lunchroom. It was just about quarter to 5pm when I sent the following email to the CEO of this company because of what I’d seen:
I understand that you are busy, so I will keep this brief.
The world is such a grand place with so many who are less fortunate than we in the scope of financial stability. My heart weeps when I look in the garbage bin of the lunchroom here to find that there is food, copious amounts of food from the recent dine and discover, in the trash that could have been given to shelters who need it or to employees who could take home left overs for their families.
We have food so that our bodies may live in this world and when food is simply tossed away like trash, then it is inexplicably unnerving and just plain horrible.
I purposely kept the email brief so that I can await his reply, whether by email or in person. I will keep you all posted on this.
This is disgusting! And for those of you who are new here, I wish to repeat some things I’d already written. We are a mass of people, surrounded by influences made by others. To throw away food is blasphemous, and it sends a wrong message to offspring when it is witnessed by loved ones. The context of kindness is no different, for we learn by the influences of those who are around us, by the experiences to which we come. Harsh words, rude behavior, anything that disturbs the human spirit and his or her environment, are like tossing food to their faces, something that could be given to others who are hungry for kinder, more respectable words.
Fellow humans, we learn from mistakes, from negative moments so that we may grow stronger, but, sometimes, we grow weak and succumb to the dread. Good will always superimpose with the bad, but, as long as we love one another as much as we can, the bad will never prevail. No matter what happens in our respective lives, we mustn’t propagate such negative energies to others, nor to ourselves within, for they have their own hardships to deal with. Because if things continue in this manner, it would rot the nourishment that words should portray, and then it will be like tossing rotted food to others. Food mustn’t be wasted. If not used for nourishment, it will rot.
May we all be spreaders of kindness and of good will. Yes!
