Toward a Fragrant Tomorrow
One can easily sweep specks of dust under the rug and forget. One can also, when the dirt piles up, dig a hole and burry it. However, what one cannot do, is ignore the inevitable. So, when will the now become real?
Truth of the matter is evident. There will be no turning back from this one and that’s the good news. The bad news is that there remains no clear line on how to move forward.
This question requires both, the government and its people to work together.
On the one hand, government officials are suddenly removing themselves from the position that requires them to work on solutions so as not to bare the blame of this foul situation.
On the other hand, the people who are gathering to protest this injustice have not even thought about listing their demands in form of a statement opting instead to express anger and revolt, which in some instances extended to the destruction of public and private property.
On top of this, the media, who in such instances should step in and assist the people in formulating a clear list of demands, is alternatively glorifying this so called ‘revolution’ by promoting string puppets and paper heroes who gobble up live air time by speaking for hours and saying nothing.
The matter is becoming so compounded that if the situation continues not even the vastest landfill will be capable of containing this mess.
Though none of us are the cause of the problem, all of us can be part of the solution.
