The Grand Scheme of Things

Sometimes we can get so caught up in materialism, that meaningless arguments, as well as complaints dominate our lives. While of course it is hard to reflect and realize that our complaints usually don’t matter in the grand scheme of things, they are inevitable. However, it is crucial that we stop bottling up our emotions up inside, and we speak out regarding the important topics of life. Topics like these may be controversial, but in life we must stand our ground, and speak up for what we believe in. To follow that statement, arises the topic of Israel. I stand and will forever stand with Israel. No, this is not only because I am Jewish, this is because I am humane, and believe in peace and fairness. A man trying to help out soldiers, soldiers of BOTH parties, by nourishing them with food, and water was killed. A decent act of goodness was greeted and intercepted by death, and evil. A woman ran out of her car, and was left with nothing but fear, and tears as she hid in the bushes to protect herself from the incoming bombs. Amidst all of the destruction, little children are singing happy songs as they walk to the bomb shelter, as they were directed to do so by nearby adults. These innocent people faced with nothing but destruction go on, and continue their lives day by day. They live in fear, constantly. Day by day, hour by hour, minute by minute, they live and breathe fear. Yet, they go on. I understand that Gaza is nearly destroyed, and that it is a living hell. However, Israel must sit in the center of it all, and fear for others. Fear for their brothers and sisters, mothers and fathers, sons, and daughters. While others, strap bombs to their children, and arm them with weapons. These people take innocent children and fill their hearts with nothing short of hate, and war. It is a humane teaching as well as a biblical teaching to love your fellow neighbor, and that is just something we do. We open our hospitals to Jews and Arabs alike, no questions asked. Complaints and materialism dominate most of our lives, but it is crucial to speak up, and take action in a time of need.
