Dear world leaders

Dear world and national leaders,

This is what's happening.

Many countries are in a not-so-optimistic situation. People aren't comfortable about recent developments. Many rumours are wandering around as for the next move of certain world and national leaders that will affect people greatly. As this time of turmoil, people are suffering from loss of direction and disappointment of our governments and certain leaders.

Can we do something about it? Are we obliged to? As leaders of the nations?

With great power comes great responsibility. We hope our world and national leaders can do something positive, wise, and useful for the societies.

And we believe honesty, openness, truthfulness are traits of wisdom. And these traits can surely help us to move on better.

People are asking: Why are so many world and national leaders corrupted and irresponsible?
Too much power and desires. Power and desires make any human lose their minds. This is especially true when the power and desires in hands are deep-rooted.

So the people ask: How do we get more clean, honest and responsible leaders?
Go for a simple and dignified life we live. We live a righteous being. We die a righteous being. Everyone does that then all societies will have clean and just people and leaders.

Quick say about money: Money is a tool. Can do angels, can do evils. We can use it to buy mostly physical things. Unfortunately, we can use it to buy people too. When we do that, both parties are corrupt. Punishment will come in sooner or later.

Some people are easily bought with money, regardless if they think themselves poor or rich. It's again the issue of lacking of integrity, lacking of honesty, righteousness and self-respect.

How do we come back to the righteous way of living?
We pray to live a simple life with dignity. We beg for no one's money in bribery way. We pray for human's awakening. Naive but righteous. We pray for calmness and resilience.

We do all the right things right. In this world, too many people are doing the wrong things right. Show them the righteous ways, please, our leaders...

At the end of the day, when we go home and see our young children, our old parents, we hope to have made them proud. We hope to say we've done something righteous...

Would my granddad have been proud of me of my life? Have I made my family proud? Have I contributed to society peace? Have I been a good child to my mom? How do I want my children to have remembered me? "Dad, I want to be exactly like you!" "Dad, why people say you're a lousy leader?" "Son, what have you done to our nation?" "Son, could you have let the people down?" "Son, I'm proud of you."

Who are we in the eyes of people? Who are we in our own eyes?

Someone once said of this: "If our aim is to be rich financially, don't become a leader of a nation. If we become a leader of a nation, we shouldn't be rich financially."

There are so many ways of becoming rich. Why do we become rich by stealing money off poorer people than us? Stealing money off public resources? What's the meaning of "leader"?

Many so-called leaders claim they're exercising their power for the benefits of certain groups of people. We wonder if they mean the benefits of they themselves, or their relatives, or their personal friends, or their cronies...

The morality and integrity of leaders are pretty low in this world of desires. We can't help but wonder of their true sinister intentions.

By the way, a true human leader does good things for all human beings, not just for a particular group of humans based on race, colors, religions, languages, backgrounds...

Talking about race, was it about 500 millions years ago a chimpanzee-like and monkey-like mammal called Lucy the common ancestor of all modern human beings these days? Lucy or whatever the name, we human beings have a common ancestor. We should all be brothers, sisters, uncles and aunts in a family. Why are we not? 500 million years is quite likely a long time. We could have rightfully forgotten.

I see... All of us, red, yellow, blue, green, purple, indigo, orange, black, pink, white, grey, fluorescent or metallic; we are family! We need to pass on the message!

As of world religions, humans are born humans. Gautama wasn't born a Buddhist; he was born a human baby. Prophet Muhammad wasn't born a Muslim; he was born a human baby. Jesus wasn't born a Christian; he was born a human baby.  Lao Tzu wasn't born a Taoist; he was born a human baby.

Just merely 3000 years ago all major religions these days didn't exist. How exactly our human common ancestors lived their life? Honesty, kindness, integrity, truthfulness, righteousness have always been around before any religions. Can we become a better human first before becoming a better religion follower? The answer is surely YES.

Human beings die one day. Be it 1, 5, 10, 30, 50, 70, 80, 90, 100 years old... We all have to go away from this life one day. We can't bring with us big houses, luxury cars, diamond rings, fancy bags... What we may bring along are integrity, memories of our short journey on earth. People may remember us as good or bad leaders, or some good some bad. One thing most of us may not realize: the law of cause and effect is always true. We do good we'll be rewarded; we do bad we'll be punished. It's the matter of time and some other ingredients of life. Nobody wants to die tough. Go ahead and pay a visit at many big hospitals and see how old folks die dying slowly and miserably. And so many of us suffer everyday from chronic illnesses that never seem to go away. And these health issues will simply deteriorate when we get older. If we've been kind and helping and live a righteous life then the torture may reduce. Otherwise we see ourselves dying in great pain and insanity. Quite a number of people become insane and crazy toward the end stage of life.

We world and national leaders have bigger responsibility bestowed on us. How are going to die if we betray the trust of people? If we just rip money off tax payers' hard earned money how's the punishment of the law of the universe?

Ancient teachings of life before the existence of any religions already talks about heaven and hell. Then it's the hell waiting for us. Hell waiting for our children and our grand children because of our bad doings, our corruption, our irresponsibility...

Dear leaders, please do something righteous fast for the societies before it's too late. For our parents, our children and to redeem and salvage ourselves from endless miserable torture in hell.

We make the people living in hell on earth, then the real hell will surely be waiting for us.

Act quick. Redeem fast. For peace, truth, love on our societies.

Say sorry to people. Ask for forgiveness. Thank the people. Without people there are no leaders. And love the people as our children and family.

We wish all human beings dignified life to live.

- A world and national leader
