Beauty…….but at what expense?

Beauty……..but at what expense?

They say that beauty is in the eye of the beholder, but what if true ugliness, pain and destruction were invisible to the human eye?

What if you could not see the suffering, from which beauty is birthed? And hardship it leaves in its wake?

Does that mean it has not happened?

What if you hear the murmurs, the questions, the restless uncomfortable inner voice that says “you may be buying into an unjust system”, but yet do nothing,

Does that make the answers untrue?

Will you stop in your tracks and and say ‘NO MORE!’ ? Will you?

Do you believe that you can afford to lose a little, so that your fellow man may gain so much more?

Is not humanity and love a higher calling than greed and profit.

PLEASE! Let us work, believe and strive together for a beauty that is not only seen, but unseen. A chain of justice from miner to maker, from shop clerk to wearer.

We all have a role to play.
