There is so much going on in the world today. It
makes you think of so many things in your own life. You begin to analyze every
moment of significance. All the news broadcasts reporting on the attacks over
the world. The immigration deportation worries for numerous immigrants. You
can’t help but wonder how it will affect families. Then you have the drug
wars, the gang shootings & the never ending saga of discrimination & racism.
I have witnessed many people be denied employment because of a background check from decades ago. Some of these individuals served their time and continue to pay the price today. They have extreme difficulties finding employment. I just don't understand.
There are so many people who are worth giving an opportunity to provide for their families. Yet the hiring companies all discriminate when you have a background. I understand that a business owner is going to protect his business however isn't this judging & discriminating for doing so? Some businesses would prefer to give a position to someone who can barely speak English. In a few weeks time you will see them searching for a new person because that person didn't work out. Go figure.
Everyone talks about how they do not judge, nor discriminate. There are people who are judging me as I write this blog. Everybody is quick to pick out the flaws in others but when and I do mean WHEN will everyone stop the bullshit and stop judging everyone for their pasts. Whatever the case may be; everyone DESERVES a second chance at regaining their life back. Everyone makes mistakes. You learn to live with them and strive to move forward. Why can't the discriminators
We are the people of this world, Change is desperately needed and it needs to start with us. Perhaps one day all those who have done wrong can earn that second chance. Until then all we can do is pray and hope the best for them. Don't discriminate; Stop the hate.
Here's praying for a better tomorrow.... )0(
