Ignorance is Bliss?

They say ignorance is bliss, and a lot of people agree with this notion without even noticing it.
You agree with this when in a sense, you don't do anything to make this world a better place.

When you turn the other way when somebody steals something.
When you throw away your food knowing that there are people all around the world who do not have food.
You agree when you don't think of anybody but yourself.
You agree when you spend your money on the latest trend, although it was not necessary.
You agree when you take an hour in the shower when in reality, there are people around the world who have to walk miles in order get a sip of water.
How about when you see somebody suffering and you don't tell them about God? When you have the answer?

I ask you, what have you done to make this world a better place?
and if we are not fixing a problem are we part of the problem?

I don't want to be just another young person who is simply wasting their youth. We have one life, and our youth only comes around once. We are only this strong, this willing, this ready to serve, NOW.

"Teach me to do thy will; for though art my God: thy spirit is good; lead me into the land of uprightness"
Psalms 143:10
"Flags" by Brooke Fraser

"Come, tell me your trouble
I'm not your answer
But I'm a listening ear

Reality has left you reeling
All facts and no feeling
No faith and all fear

I don't know why a good man will fall
While a wicked one stands
And our lives blow about
Like flags on the land

Who's at fault is not important
Good intentions lie dormant
And we're all to blame

While apathy acts like an ally
My enemy and I are one and the same

I don't know why the innocents fall
While the monsters still stand
And our lives blow about
Like flags on the land

I don't know why our words are so proud

Yet their promise soothing
And our lives blow about
Like flags in the wind

Oh oh oh oh

You who mourn will be comforted
You who hunger will hunger no more
All the last shall be first
Of this I am sure

You who weep now will laugh again
All you lonely be lonely no more
Yes, the last will be first
Of this I'm sure

I don't know why the innocents fall
While the monsters stand
I don't know why the little ones thirst
But I know the last shall be first
I know the last shall be first
I know the last shall be first"
