Please forgive us.
We’ve been as unconscious as it gets, as distracted as it gets. We have not concerned ourselves or taken seriously enough some profoundly significant things. Like responsible citizenship.
I’m sorry we’ve been too busy, too stressed out, and exhausted from running on empty to have the energy to think about important things until it’s too late. The truth is, you weren’t our priority. We’ve lacked some serious depth. Been living at the level of superficiality, where drama and chaos dance. And we are paying the price. Because in the absence of that depth, in the absence of that concern and vigilance to weed what should not thrive, we have been taken over from within. The weeds of the individual and collective narcissism we have engaged in have taken over the garden while we’ve been taking selfies.
