Looking at oneself in the mirror is something we all do on a daily basis. If you are homeless you do not even need to look at yourself because as far as society is concerned you are invisible and no matter how bad things get they will only get worse in the future. There are people living in squalor in the richest city in California. Los Angeles the city of angels has now become a hell hole with people living in makeshift tents in the downtown area. I look at myself in the mirror and think At least I can see myself but lately I see worry about the future of the world we now live in. Another mass shooting in a Florida high school. The mass shooting at high schools began at Columbine many years ago.
I grew up in a Christian home and I read the Bible as a child would remember a verse to repeat when asked. I remember people talking about the mark of the beast. There would be a time when the only way you could buy anything is your body had to have this symbol. In the country of Venezuela, the people have to have their fingerprints scanned to buy food in state-controlled grocery stores. The currency is practically worthless.
I now understand what I see in the mirror. I believe we all understand that our world is broken and as it always has been. We all have to start with the desire to not only improve our physical body but also our minds. If you want to change the world begin with yourself.
