The Dignity of a True Man

65

Every human out there is born with a purpose; They’re born out of love and sacrifice.  Then they are transferred to a family where they learn to grow up and mature through care and comfort. Eventually, they too will repeat a this cycle to their later generation.

We all start off knowing nothing about the world around us. Everything drives the curiosity within  us and as we learn and as we know, our knowledge expands. During this time period, we meet and accept other individuals within our lives and our hearts. Life is basically a special force that binds us together in unity through love and passion.

We all grow up to make friends. As the amount of our friends multiplies, our list of enemies grow. We then develop feelings of hatred, disgust, and jealousy. We abhor and detest the people that we don’t like; who aren’t pleasing to us. I wonder why is that. I wonder why in the human nature does judgement and hatred develop? Why do we walk around the malls and categorize individuals as:

  • Fat
  • Scrawny
  • Old
  • Ugly
  • Cute
  • Ew

Each and every one of them is internally beautiful because of all the love that they acquire from their families and their friends. Why do we only see the outward appearance of them? As a Christian, I am taught that every human is created in God’s own image. Because God is pure and beautiful, that would mean that everyone is internally pure and beautiful as well. It’s SOCIETY’s fault that some of our internal miracle are faded and smeared. It’s the external factors that masks our individuality and our magnificence.

Well the question is, “why do we let society tell us what to do?” I don’t even know the answer to that myself. Like for example gay marriage. In the past, this outrageous idea was completely opposed and looked upon with disgust. I don’t know why… Do they think that they were able to choose who/what their heart desired? Like do you think that innocent people with Down’s Syndrome were able to choose that disability? No. we were all born as  unique individuals. Society basically molds us to what they believe we should be. Like Disney Princess movies. Every Disney Princess is obviously a female and through struggles, she finds the male of her dreams. It basically brain washes children who watch these to be used to the idea of Men & Women being together that they would have to reject anything different.

As for fighting a war, two countries conscript innocent men to fight each other. Sometimes, they don’t even know the reason for killing and they just do it because they were forced to. Think about it, each man being killed in war is generally— I don’t know.. 18+? Throughout those years, think about how long it is to live 18 years. I’m 15 right now and I feel like I’m living an eternity. Through those 18 years, think about their family that loves them, their love of their life that loves them, and also their friends that love them. Think about how much they would’ve gone through and all the future that would be ahead of them. It’s truly beautiful once you think about it… and when all that is taken away…

“But now, for the first time, I see you are a man like me. I thought of your hand-grenades, of your bayonet, of your rifle; now I see your wife and your face and our fellowship. Forgive me, comrade. We always see it too late. Why do they never tell us that you are poor devils like us, that your mothers are just as anxious as ours, and that we have the same fear of death, and the same dying and the same agony–Forgive me, comrade; how could you be my enemy?”  -All Quiet on the Western Front

Basically, everyone is a unique individual and as a True Man matures, they naturally grow out of Love and Dignity.
