You can never take knowledge for granted. No matter how much you think you know, there will always be people better than you. There will always be things that are out of your comprehension. In times where we fight against an enemy that always seems to win, the only commodity we have is the knowledge we keep. Whether out of experience or passed down through what we learn, what we know can make a difference between life and death.
In the war against something like cancer, it’s easy to forget that there is plenty more to find out about it especially in the face of trying to set the wrongs right. More often, we’re so overcome with our own emotions that we compromise our judgement, taking the easy road and burying ourself in things that have no basis to work.
Yet separating our objectivity from our, while hard, should be our number one priority, more so when we have a duty and responsibility to keep. It’s not without a price to pay for being cold that we give a chance for the ones we care for to live their life. Maybe one day more of us will realize it. But that day is yet to come.
This year Footsteps in the Mirror will be blogging to raise money for the Association for International Cancer Research which is a non-profit organisation that helps fund cancer research throughout the world. If you’re willing to help, you can sign up on the Blogathon website and pledge your amount right here. Help make a difference, no matter how small it may be.
