So many of us look at the world and wonder
what's gone wrong. How did everything get so messed up? Why is there
so much hate in the world? What are people thinking? Why can't
anything be easy? Why can't we all just get along?
optimistic of us continue to hold out hope that things will get
better. Wars will cease, racism and other forms of oppression will
fade, diseases will be cured and people will all get along.
But how all this will come to pass remains a mystery. Will it happen
because we simply wish it to be as if by magic?
So, I was talking with a friend the other day who was appalled at the cost of organic food. With this frustration, she was having trouble remembering the reasons why she buys organic food. This frustration is completely understandable. The cost can be ridiculous and the mark-up can be outrageous. Her other concern was how organic food is out of reach for some families who just can’t afford it because they can barely pay to keep shelter over their heads. Without a doubt, this is unfair.
