The world is coming to an end


The air is polluted, the oceans contaminated


The animals are going extinct, the economy’s collapsed


Education is shot, police are corrupt


Intelligence is shunned and ignorance rewarded


The people are depressed and angry


We can't live with each other and we can't live with ourselves


So everyone’s medicated


We pass each other on the streets


And if we do speak it's meaningless robotic communication


More people want 15 seconds of fame


Than a lifetime of meaning and purpose


Because what’s popular is more important than what’s right


Ratings are more important than the truth


Our government builds twice as many prisons than schools


It’s easier to find a Big Mac than an apple


And when you find the apple


It's been genetically processed and modified


Presidents lie, politicians trick us


Race is still an issue and so is religion


Your God doesn’t exist, my God does and he is All-Loving


If you disagree with me I'll kill you


Or even worse argue you to death


92% of songs on the radio are about sex


Kids don’t play tag, they play twerk videos


The average person watches 5 hours of television a day


And it's more violence on the screen than ever before


Technology has given us everything we could ever want


And at the same time stolen everything we really need


Pride is at an all time high, humility, an all time low


Everybody knows everything, everybody’s going somewhere


Ignoring someone, blaming somebody


Not many human beings left anymore, a lot of human doings


Plenty of human lingerings in the past, not many human beings


Money is still the root of all evil


Yet we tell our kids don’t get that degree


The jobs don’t pay enough


Good deeds are only done when there's a profit margin


Videos of the misfortunes of others go viral


We laugh and share them with our friends to laugh with us


Our role models today


60 years ago would have been examples of what not to be


There are states where people can legally be discriminated against Because they were born a certain way


Companies invest millions of dollars hiring specialists to make Little girls feel like they need “make up” to be beautiful Permanently lowering

 

their self esteem


Because they will never be pretty enough


To meet those impossible standards


Corporations tell us buy, buy, buy, get this, get that


You must keep up, you must fit in


This will make you happy, but it never does for long


So what can we do in the face of all of this madness and chaos?


What is the solution? We can love


Not the love you hear in your favorite song on the radio


I mean real love, true love, boundless love


You can love, love each other


From the moment we wake up to the moment we go to bed


Perform an act of kindness because that is contagious


We can be mindful during every interaction


Planting seeds of goodness


Showing a little more compassion than usual


We can forgive


Because 300 years from now will that grudge you hold against Your friend, your mother, your father have been worth it?


Instead of trying to change others we can change ourselves


We can change our hearts


We have been sold lies


Brainwashed by our leaders and those we trust


To not recognize our brothers and sisters


And to exhibit anger, hatred and cruelty


But once we truly love we will meet anger with sympathy


Hatred with compassion, cruelty with kindness


Love is the most powerful weapon on the face of the Earth


Robert Kennedy once said that


Few will have the greatness to bend history


But each of us can work to change a small portion of events


And in the total of all those act


Will be written in the history of a generation


So yes, the world is coming to an end


And the path towards a new beginning starts within you
