Gone were the days

Gone were the days that being virtuous was a natural inherent thing for us human beings. Neighbors constantly watch your back, strangers lending hands to one another with no qualms, less incidences driven on by greed by taking what is rightfully not yours, just to cite a few examples.

Now it is a big surprise for you to see be able those things again. Some of us barely know our own neighbors. Why so? because it is not the norm anymore and everyone is suspected of doing us harm instead. We have grown wary of our surroundings; constantly on guard for unscrupulous beings.

Is it right to say society shaped us into what we are today?
but why let society shape you?
We shall shape the society instead.
Much like "Ask not what the government can do for you, Ask what you can do for the government."

It might not be much, but we need to start somewhere.
Make it a point to be the change you want to see, although the rest of the rat race is otherwise.
Sometimes a small change is what it needs to start the ball rolling.
And that small change might be you...
