#NaBloPoMo Prompt for Monday, December 9, 2013
If you could banish one thing from this earth -- tangible or intangible -- what would it be?
I wish I could banish evil. With evil of course comes greed, jealousy, wickedness, immorality, etc... I wish I could see more people caring about one another and helping their fellow men/women in need. I wish I could see people who work hard being rewarded rather than overlooked. I wish I could see those that are always lifting others up being lifted up when they are down. I wish I could witness people giving rather than taking.
Instead, I often see people who expect to be given things they don't earn. Instead, I see people "stepping on others" to get to the top. I see people working themselves to the bone barely making enough to survive while some make more money than they deserve by lying, stealing and cheating.
I know personally even I have had moments of evil. I have said something bad about another person. I've gossiped. I've lied before. We all have. The difference to me is I feel guilty for my personal acts of evil. I just can't stand those who don't seem to be bothered by committing these and even worse acts of evil.
