Introspection: We Are Broken by J. L. Walker
Humpty Dumpty sat on a wall, Humpty Dumpty had a great fall. These familiar words may seem like a simple nursery rhyme, but they hold a profound truth about us. Just like Humpty Dumpty, we find ourselves shattered, in need of repair, fallen, cracked, and broken.
But how do we begin to restore brokenness, to rebuild a shattered community? It is not enough to simply provide our children with education; we must also be their role models. We need to instill in them a sense of hope, a belief in their own potential. For it is through our actions, not just our words, that we can inspire them to understand that things will indeed get better.
The truth that there are no simple answers.
It is disheartening to realize that even the kings' horses and kings' men were not able to put Humpty Dumpty back together again.
We must look beyond the strength of the kings and queens who rule over us, but turn our gaze to the hills and seek the strength of the Lord. A divided city functions like self-serving individuals, but a city united functions like a village of hope.
We cannot ignore the pain of a mother who has lost her child. The empty arms she holds so tightly, seeking solace and a glimmer of hope. It is our duty, as a compassionate society, to empathize with her sorrow and extend our love and support. Let us not turn a blind eye to the struggles she faces just to create a popular post on social media, but rather uplift her with genuine care and understanding.
We can no longer ignore the family that has experienced the tragic loss of a loved one due to struggles with mental health, we cannot abandon them in their despair. Instead, we must provide them with the tools to find hope for the future. Let us create an environment where addiction is approached with empathy, and those struggling are met with open hearts and resources to help them recover.
In our communities and schools, safety must be paramount. We cannot turn a blind eye to the growing concerns and fears that plague the everyday lives of our citizens. It is our collective responsibility to work towards improving and ensuring daily safety for all.
So, whatever happened to Humpty Dumpty after the great fall? Was Humpty eventually lifted up from a shattered state? Our story does not have to end in broken, fractured and shattered pieces. Let us draw strength from each other, inspire one another, and forge a path towards a future that is defined by unity, compassion, and hope. A community is a place where every broken piece has a rightful place.
