Focused on the Cause

I liked girls, I liked dating, but I was focused on the cause.   In fact, contrary to the norm I was getting worse at socializing. I knew that one could work for the cause and still socialize but I was not good at this and tried to be better.   I didn’t see how pictures of starving children, and dictators who were our allies torturing people, and incredible opulence in the hands of people both foreign and domestic was okay while hundreds of thousand shivered through the cold of the night.  I didn’t understand how color of your skin made for the hatred that was so prevalent, or that a small religious group mostly keeping to themselves but friendly when introduced to a stranger could be blamed for the world’s ills, and that blaming turning into a program of eradication.  The good, unfortunately was rarely followed by more good, and that there remained so much evil in the midst of so much good.  That greed and jealousy existed in the midst of such good, of such caring, and that greed and jealousy were responsible for so much bad. I understood why some devoted themselves to the cause and some didn’t, and it often was not an answer to good and bad.  That being part of supporting a family was a noble cause of its own and being good often begins with a simple smile.
