Jeez! What’s a poor boy to do? Well, for one, I’d put the Bibles aside for a little while and focus my attention on more secular matters, such as the rampant graft pauperizing the country and the total UNACCEPTABILITY of political power without ACCOUNTABILITY. You’re wrong if you think you cannot contribute towards the meaningful changes necessary for a better life in Belize.
Every time you speak of these things with your friends and family, you are in fact “testifying” and adding your energy to the “universal consciousness” which historically has always been the agent of change.
A country is the people and the employers of the government, not the other way around. Maybe if “the elites” went on a diet of Ramen Noodles for a while, their vision would improve.
People can make a difference. Put down your iPhone (this is not the time to keep tabs on empty idols) and embrace your brothers and sisters.
