Thought for Today: We have failed… – by Rosaliene Bacchus

Rosaliene BacchusFROM: Three Worlds One Vision

We have failed…through our lack of responsible awareness…and thus added to suffering around the world. All of us are cripples—some physically, some mentally, some emotionally. We must, therefore, strive cooperatively to create a new world. There is no time left for destruction, for hatred, for anger. We must build, in hope and joy and celebration.

~ Ivan Illich (1926-2002), Austrian philosopher and former Roman Catholic priest, as quoted in Wisdom Through the Ages: From Great Minds by Gary Girdhari, A Guyana Journal Publication, New York City, USA, 2018.

    The world is adopting hate against races, but we are not like that. I am very friendly towards people.

    One of my relatives is posing with the Venezuelan girl in the photo. We are not all tribalistic and xenophobic like certain sections of Guyanese:

    I’m not going to divulge too much because certain Guyanese expect kind-hearted people like me to storm into the shacks of the Venezuelan squatters and conduct an AmeriKKKan mass shooting against them for the “fallout” of Venezuelans and Haitians.

    We are a hospitable people. The people living in Pradoville mansions are the rude ones!
