It was World Humanitarian Day last Sunday.
Another time I remind myself for what I aim to stand for.
There’s no denying that this world isn’t a fair place.
War, abuse, poverty, and corruption. Things individuals commonly think of when swiping onto the world’s news.
That part of the news filters the light that is also going on in places- our world.
Global awareness, mindfulness, positive self/public advocation and welfare. Things that open an individual’s mind to the belief that the world can be united. Hope and truth.
You see, there’s even a day celebrated and dedicated to humanitarianism on a global scale.
I believe. Believe in the everlasting works of human welfare, global justice, and world peace.
It’s out there. I see it everyday.
It doesn’t matter about how the hours you need to make, money donated, or shelters visited. It can be as small as a smile to a stranger.
I know a humanitarian when I see one. I feel their every wish and moral intentions when it comes.
I try my best to not miss and lose one. They may be rare to come by but never impossible to find.
Invite yourself into their world, they’d be glad to share and welcome you into humanitarianism.
Always a step closer into making the world into one,
A step closer to humanity.
