CHANGING OF THE GUARD


It is the end of an era and we have now entered into a new decade. A moments in time as the world changes we begin a new chapter, a moment of reality. Conflicts are already here, it is only a matter of time before we see the effects of the decisions and the conspiracies that has been made. This is the time to stop and consider as we ask ourselves: Where do we go from here? Global warming is a fact that we cannot deny. Look at the disasters we are faced with; wild fires is on the rise, the atmosphere is out of sync with nature, the earth is in chaos. Our neighbors are facing destruction from earthquakes and volcanoes, our lives are in situations of unease. We ask questions but there aren’t any answers. Where do we go from here?

We have entered into a year when pertinent decisions will be made. The time has come and is upon us for real soul searching; we cannot waver because the choices we make will determine the path we take. We have seen the results of the past, history will never tell us a lie even as it repeats itself. This might not be where we want to be or how we want to be judged by future generations. However, we have decided the role we play on the stages of life therefore, it is up to us to make the changes, preserve our heritage and turn our backs on the negative things which separates us.

As we consider the future where we are, what is ahead of us: what we fear is coming to light in this new decade! We sometimes reminisce, we asked ourselves, where have all those years gone? What have we accomplished? Less we forget; the journey has started and we have no way of stopping or jumping off this train. We consider those moments in solitude hoping for the best. It was not too long ago that we looked at our elders and blame them for the situations we inherited but at last we have become the elders of today. Who are we going to blame? We had the opportunity to make thing right but stood in silence without trying to help. We were the youths of yesterday now we are the elders of today. There is no one we can blame anymore for the things left undone. Even though we never considered the urgencies of those moments, waisted times has come back to haunt us.

Let us look with a new perspective to the future as we approach this decade knowing that in just a few short years we will need to be taken care of. The caregivers of the past are now the being taken care of themselves. As frightening as it might seems, there is no way to avoid this impending danger. Some will be well cared for while others will face the mercies of their caregivers. However Heaven help us all as we move on with confidence that it will be alright.

Consider the lilies of the field how they grow; they do not toil or spin yet our father provide for them. Even so as we observed the changing of the guard, we can do so knowing that inspite of our fears and apprehension of the future, everything’s going to be alright.
