The Value of Human Dignity

All of mankind holds intrinsic worth because all of mankind is created in the Image of God. This worth is not limited by ethnicity, religion, age or gender. It’s not restricted by who you love. It’s not made accessible by ones’ legal or economic status. It is not bound by ones’ country of origin nor legislated by documentation. This worth is not associated with ones political affiliation nor should it ever be taken away by any human being.

I started to give up on the hat thing, until earlier in the week when he put on a cap in Target that read,” I need my space,” with objects orbiting in space. He refused to take it off. “Cool hat,” I said while screaming in my mind, “Yes! He likes hats now!”

The Art of Abiding

We recently got a new type of remote with the installation of our cable – the type of remote where you speak into it and it changes to the channel or media that you request. The funny thing is, I rarely use it. As convenient and advanced as it is – I prefer to navigate with the buttons and menus to my selection. In that same vein, I rarely use Siri on my iPhone. Why do I do extra work when something that is designed to make my life easier is also accessible to me?
