This is an excerpt from a novel I am reading.
Interesting isn't it how fiction is more real and honest than apparent non-fiction.
I read this novel and experience so much reality and truth. I pick up a newspaper and read fantasy and absurdity.
Shocking isn't it how the shirt on the back of £100,000 a week footballer was probably made by someone who can hardly afford to buy a shirt for their own back.
Disgraceful isn't it that the oil used for the petrol to fill my car to drive to a polling station to vote might have come from a oil company that drills in a dictatorship country that uses slaves to build their pipelines.
Heart breaking isn't it that the food thrown away by supermarkets in the West could feed the billion starving people around the world.
Our actions have a deep impact around the world and whatever our faith we are each called to help shape a better future for all. We are called to move away from exploitation and greed. We are called to stand up for justice and destroy manipulation. It is a calling to stop seeing ourselves as victims and to open our eyes to the real victims of this world.
