Dark side of humanity

Life leaves its sign of traces, for better or worse,
which even sunrise or sunset can’t hide.

Walk inspired by “Restlessjo” and her captivating “Monday walk” themes.

We ordinary people are only human beings, with all our human shortcomings,
that is why we have chosen politicians with overall responsibility.
To make the right decisions for everyone including the earth
The history is full of examples of they not lifting the common yoke.
That war against civilians isn’t part of the solution, but part of the problem.
The wounds around the world often end up becoming museums instead.
We don’t get smarter but mostly end up in doing business as usual.

One of all these “museums” is the french village of Oradour-sur-Glane,
a monumental image of the shadow side of our so-called humanity.
Untouched since 1944, around 650 inhabitants were executed – only six survived.

On your own

Morocco on the road.

Always been told that “Life is a road”.
Sometimes a highway, mountain road or secondary road.
We often see what we want to see from the road.
– and sometimes we forget seeing what we can see.

People take different roads seeking fulfillment and happiness.
Just because they’re not on your road
– doesn’t mean they’ve gotten lost
*H. Jackson Brown, Jr – american author*

 

Ongoing journey

On a drive across Morocco from west to east,
– a very impressive experience full of exciting impressions.
Although the road actually is okay both paved roads and gravel roads.
Much more asphalt than expected, but quite a lot of dust is also seen.

For the nomad tribes it is often if not a desert walk
so an ongoing journey to find food for the important utility animals.

Huge difference between urban and rural life.

United coexistence

In a way, some of these ancient tribal cultures, they have
a more “inclusive social politic” than hypermodern technological cultures.
Everyone has a function in the community – part-time work isn’t that modern.
It has been known for many, many years.

Ask not what your community can do for you
– ask what you can do for your community
*a with one word rewritten John F Kennedy quote*
(everyone can do something if they are allowed to show it)
