LETTER FROM THE EDITOR – Antigo Instances
The essence of humanity
I remembered a narrative from AA Milne, the writer of the Winnie-the-Pooh collection, a few knight in magnificent armor boldly driving the countryside. In all places he went, he pressed passers-by, passers-by and nearly everybody in his path, even to the purpose of threatening them with bodily hurt.
This knight spoke and even shouted out his talents and challenged everybody to steer him to their sure defeat.
Properly, defeat goes each methods. Sooner or later, as inevitably occurs within the historical past of the human situation, he encountered one other knight in a joust which rapidly knocked him off his horse and laid him flat on his again. When the Loud Knight eliminated his shiny and intimidating armor, the reader discovered that he was not a sturdy, sturdy fighter, however quite a thin previous man scratching his head questioning who and what he was.
Quick ahead to the current and to us who reside past the land of fairy tales and fashionable occasions – aren’t we generally like that knight in shining armor? Will not we “arm” ourselves with jewellery, necklaces, watches, Mont Blanc pens, Prada, Polo or another merchandise that can permit us to parade like a daring knight?
It is somewhat comical to suppose that we are able to thrust back assaults with the glare of valuable metals and gems, or the mushy glow of designer garments. We do not have to go down that highway. We now have to look inside and discover ourselves – what are we standing for? What can we consider in? What are our key expertise? What’s our place in a small nook of this nice universe? What can we do with it to make issues higher? Who can we depend on to assist us?
Trying to the horizon, we see so many alternatives to assist our fellow vacationers in life. There’s a lot want on the market that gives such an opportunity to those that are ready to assist. We will take the armor off and actually be a part of the material of life. That is the true battle, in opposition to poverty and oppression, to assist as a part of the goodness of mankind.
