I live in a country where bad outdoes the good. Where corruption and greed are the 'best' qualities you need to have to get that tender, that job, that position. What happened to the good? I was recently reading. 'The Devil and Miss Prym' by Paulo Coelho, great writer by the way . The story was about good and bad and what each can do to a society. In this particular town they were all good people until a foreigner came and asked them to commit a murder and in return they would be rewarded with 11 gold bars.
Countless times I have questioned what the people in power have done since being elected into those positions. They have actually done a lot of good but the bad outshines the good. Our call to action as citizens is to give them the support they need. The support has been offered in many ways, for example we are taught how to be ethical and moral but the minute we step out of class, society really doesn't reflect that. You sort of give up at supporting them and get back to your assignment that should be completed by tomorrow. However, I should be keen to look at the good rather than the bad that goes on around me, for example having a church that supports your endeavors as a youth member.
