I am a Murderer

by Darwin Bedford, Spiritual Reality Therapist


Twenty-four thousand people die of hunger every day and I am killing them. An equal number are maimed for life from not having enough food to eat--and I am responsible for their suffering. I make mothers must decide which child is to be fed and which child is to go hungry--and possibly die.

My actions allow this to occur. While I try my hardest to make myself comfortable, fellow members of my own species are suffering and failing to survive. I know that something is wrong here. I know that this is not my vision of the world that I want to live in.

I am responsible for this mass suffering and death by not acting appropriately to prevent it. If I were "in action" enough I could prevent death and suffering from poverty, but, instead I choose to enjoy my time and let others suffer. How can I live with myself? How can I tolerate my selfishness?

I'm OK, you're OK.
I'm dysfunctional, you're dysfunctional.
I'm a murderer, you're a murderer.
