Our world of chaos, is sad, isn’t it? Look around at the endless war, the hate, the violence, blood in the streets, the greed, the obliteration of the earth, the massacres, the shredding of humanity. It looks downright bleak, and it is. Once you strip away the façade the lies, the greed, the hate, and groups pitted off against each other, you will see the truth. The truth is we are just people.

Take the Arab baby, the Latino baby, the white baby and put them in a room with toys. Watch them all play together. They are just people.

There is no Jihadist

There is no gang member

There is no racist

They are just people

The Arab baby is taught to hate

The Latino baby is taught to hate

The white baby is taught to hate

They are all put onto a group and pitted against each other in constant combat. They are no longer just people but a group. They are no longer the innocent baby. Their hearts, minds, and bodies filled with hatred, corruption, lies, and deceit. Evil has deceived them like it deceives most of us.

We all come from the earth and go back to the earth. We all bleed red and all turn to dust. Ashes to ashes and dust to dust. We are all just people. We learn these destructive behaviors and they dominate our lives.

The puppet masters pull the strings. Sometimes to the left, sometimes to the right, sometimes in the middle. They deceive us all and live off the hate. The Jew against the Arab, the jihadist against the Jew. The black against the white, the white against the black. Men against women, women against men. It goes on and on and on and on.

Meanwhile, the babies play in the room, they are just people. They don’t care about the jihadist, they don’t care about the racist, the don’t care about the gang member. They are just people but as they grow up, evil corrupts them and they cease to be just people.

The puppet master holds the strings, adorned with a crown of thorns, they ride a pale horse, and their mask is death. They are not just people.

Go outside and smell the air, take a walk and listen. Watch the stars at night and listen to the ocean waves if you live by the shore. We are all a part of the earth and it’s our home. We may never learn that we are all just people. Chaos and destruction may be our destiny.

In the end, we are all just people. We are humanity. We have never realized this. It’s about time we start acting like humans and just people. Ashes to Ashes and Dust to Dust is the final end of all people.
