“We in the richest societies have too many calories even as we starve for beautiful, fresh food;
we have overly large houses but lack spaces that truly embody our individuality and connectedness;
Media surrounds us everywhere while we starve for authentic communication.
We are offered entertainment every second of the day but lack the chance to play.
In the ubiquitous realm of money, we hunger for all that is intimate, personal, and unique.”
Where things going wrong?
“When women suffer, marriages suffer.
When marriages suffer, children suffer.
When children suffer, families suffer.
When families suffer, communities suffer.
When communities suffer, societies suffer.
When societies suffer, nations suffer.
When nations suffer, the world suffers.
When the world suffers, God suffers.”
Regarding the last sentence in Matshona Dhliwayo quote- he talks of God suffering, I am not sure what he wishes to convey.Probably he means that people lose faith in God.
