Every great city has a history. Every great city has experienced change, growth, advancement, tragedy, rebuilding, success, failure and taken on its own personality. Some great cities are transformed and grow so fast they split into multiple cities. Some great cities experience massive influx of residents and some experience massive exodus.
But no matter how great the city, how technologically advanced, how great its sports teams are, how fast its growth or the size of its productivity and profit, all great cities still retain the one most important thing of all: Every great city has its own soul.
Why is it these days when someone does something wrong and you call them out on it, they don’t admit it and apologize, but instead they retaliate by doing something else wrong? When did our society become so backwards? Why can’t people look themselves in the mirror and truly admit their faults as well as their strengths? Why can’t they accept they have weaknesses and work to improve and overcome them?
All we need is some quiet reflection, alone, away from Smart phones, net flicks, internet, wifi and outside influence. It is only then that we can contemplate who we really are and what we need to do to strive to improve to make ourselves better people, to better society. If we can be honest with ourselves, we can never be honest with others and our whole society will become one, endless farse. Don’t let that happen.
