Responsibility Exists Whether You Like It Or Not

Responsibility exists whether you like it or not.

Most of us equate it to being responsible directly for something or someone, with no real thought to what might come after.  Most of us also view responsibility as a negative, with fear of wrong doing or blame, just a small step away.

Yet, how far you are willing to see your responsibility in all things, depends on how wide you allow your perspective to be.

Consider the internet for example.

Every time you write something on the internet, it becomes part of human recorded history, forever.  

In times gone by, only those to took the time to preserve the written word, in books or on tablets, succeeded in affecting future generations of humanity.

Today, anyone can do it.  

Write a little something on your blog, and it is there forever more.

So in light of this, how carefully should we consider what we write on the web?  Do you write with a mindfulness of affecting future generations?  Are you careful to be truthful?  Factual?  Honourable?

As members of the human race we have a responsibility to think; we must care and we must love with our whole hearts.  As mothers, fathers, families and friends, we must be willing to help each other.

“When we write anything to the foundation of human history we must view it as a type of responsibility entrusted to us by a thousand, thousand future generations.  Our messages will persist, with their effects, long after we are gone. Global data and communication has elevated the position of writer to one of humanity’s highest, most sacred, offices. I can only hope each of us, in our capacity as a writer, approaches this work as humanity’s friend.” Keith Raniere
