“Things were made to be used, people were made to be loved”-(also in audio)

“Things were made to be used. People were made to be loved. The world is in chaos because things are being loved and people are being used.”

When I saw this quote I just knew I had to write about it.  It hit home. Really hit home. It was perfect in speaking to me about what’s happening in our country.

First, it has totally taken over  our political system.  A few billionaires running our country with all of their wealth.  Wanting to rule it for them and them alone.  How can we change that?  How can we become more human?  How can we stop using people and bringing in more love into our lives?

Why do we feel we need to manipulate, control and use people for our gain?  It feels naive of me to ask this question, but I have witnessed a society crumbling in their values and ethics and passing it on to their children. Do you feel the
