I have trouble with the values that some folks put on things.
Why is a rock that I want out of my field worth so much to someone in the city as an ornament?
Why is a piece of paper worth so much just because of who’s name and picture is on it?
Why do we pay sports stars and entertainers more than teachers?
Why do some people stay up all night under artificial light and then go to bed and miss the beautiful sunrise?
Why do some put so much value on things, and so little value on people?
Why is the opinion of a famous person of more value than that of a scientist or of a farmer?
So much of our world is upside down. I just don’t understand it. Those with hard jobs that feed and heal the world are valued less than entertainers. Art can be worth millions and food worth pennies. Our children are given TV sets as baby sitters because we don’t have time to read them a book or show them how we do every day tasks. People kill each other over an idea or a few ounces of poison. We are so busy giving each other things that we don’t stop to give them our time and our love. How did our world get so messed up.
