"That which hurts, instructs."
So, true it is, substantially supporting the basis of motive. Pain compels violence or reclusive behavior. Pain makes war, where pain causes greater pain - such as grieving over the lost. Why must we build walls after pain? Why can’t we openly trust? A defensive mechanism of recluse. Why doesn’t anyone talk to the hermit in the far-off land? What about the lonely student sitting at lunch alone at the corner table?
What about Columbine?
Are we to lock-up the source of pain in a little black box not visible enough in the mind, and not transparent enough to see light? Does mould really grow in darkness?
Is sin a mould, and have we been steadily diverting our pained minds to something much lighter?
So many actions, historical scenes, literatures, etc. derived from this one emotion… Pain through: oppression, racism, discrimination, sexism, bigotry, chauvinism, and the list goes on.
But life wouldn’t be real without pain… And we would not learn without discomfort.
What will you do: today, tomorrow, and continuing onward?
We Are the World.
