>Balancing Act

>”How does it feel to be one of the beautiful people?”  Good question to ask folks sitting on top of the pile. How does one answer the same question when they’re on the bottom, being weighed down by the guy above’s baggage and riches? 

Where does one draw the line between too much and not enough?  And when it comes to the “Haves” and the “Have-Nots,” where does one place a judgement?  Suppose the “Have” person worked their hands to the bone to make what they got?  Suppose the “Have Not” didn’t get the same opportunity?  Then what?

Is there really supposed to be a universal fairness? I don’t know….if so it would totally eradicate the notion of things like Karma, reciprocity and responsibility for one’s actions.

No….much as it would be nice, and believe me I’m not exactly living in the lap of luxury, I think just giving everybody everything evenly isn’t such a good idea.  Neither is letting people starve in the streets though…so there’s a long way to go before we get it completely right.

But that’s what we’re here to do….figure it out.

So for today, Fifty Five Is The New Balancing Act….social justice, fairness…..hmmmm.
