Rabat - Nowadays, one of the most lethal threats to any country is the loss of its political stability. Dealing with this kind of problem is not an easy task for any government. It is even harder for citizens to cope with political upheavals because they are the first ones to be highly affected and pay the cost.
Rabat – Nowadays, one of the most lethal threats to any country is the loss of its political stability. Dealing with this kind of problem is not an easy task for any government. It is even harder for citizens to cope with political upheavals because they are the first ones to be highly affected and pay the cost.
Recently, a group of Moroccan artists launched a video called “Ounadikom,” (I’m calling you), which they dedicate “to all the innocent people in the world.” This initiative discusses one of the many issues that has attracted the attention of the world in recent years. There have been many events where bloodshed has become a daily routine that creates instability, poverty and homelessness. A major example of this is the events occurring since the beginning of 2011 in Egypt and Syria.
The video reminds us of our responsibility towards those in need- those people who totally lost faith in humanity due to the daily suffering they undergoing. Our duty is to help them in every way possible to alleviate their pain, because if we don’t, it will definitely affect us as well.
“People should remember that we are all brothers and sisters; we ought to fight together against violence and inhumanity. We shouldn’t forget the pain of the other nations,” he added.
The first contribution we can offer to our country is love. Every individual should be proud of his/her own country without reaching the level of being arrogant. It is quiet unfortunate that, in some countries, the cultural wealth is highly valued by outsiders more than it is by locals, or even undermined.
Every person on earth wants to live peacefully in the society they belong to. However, to help our countries become better places, we should first start by changing ourselves to be better individuals and positively affect our environment.
Tolerance towards the other is one of the main pillars of the national stability of any country. When a person stops trying to change others and works more on changing him/herself, the world and society will witness systematical change.
Sometimes understanding the other is more important than being right. This understanding can be achieved by listening rather than just hearing. We don’t only need a brilliant mind that speaks but a patient heart that listens. Also, we need to act responsibly; even the smallest things we do are related in a way or another to our countries.
This responsibility expands even further, for people have obligations toward their fellow nationals more than toward foreigners. Living within a group creates a special relationship, attachment and commitment that enforce the necessity to respect special duties and rights toward one another.
