It's not all about you!

You know, it’s not all about you!

My facebook rant today: I am absolutely amazed, confounded, and concerned by so many, esp. in the 20-30 age range, that don’t know our world’s history, nor even know what’s going on today. I feel we’ve become such a self absorbed culture that it’s turned us into a zombie-like nation. I’d like to think we weren’t that clueless when I was that age, but maybe I was blind. Reaching out to a neighbor, the idea of “putting yourself in someone else’s shoes”, taking time to listen to & learn from the life lessons of your elders (whether you agreed with them or not), respecting others’ differences or opinions, traveling abroad in order to serve, just looking to help anywhere, anyhow… wearing yourself out for OTHERS. All this was encouraged, expected even. It was all part of gaining perspective, becoming a valuable citizen, a person of integrity & character, a person your parents, and God, would be proud of. ‪#‎broadenyourworldview‬ ‪#‎servingremovesselfishness‬ ‪#‎turnoffthetv‬ ‪#‎putdowntheiphone‬ ‪#‎getoutsideofYOU‬~ Tammy
