In 2016 while in rehabilitation a therapist working with me; or watching me work, waxed philosophical on the winnings of a recent Lottery player. This person she felt imbodied all that was wrong with people. Selfish and self-centered. “Do you realize she said aloud, that’s enough money to give every adult in this country one million dollars each!” I held my peace.
But, I thought about all the million-dollar babies of which I had heard, who committed suicide. I thought of all the reasonings given for murder, hate, war, theft, and a mirage of other injustices we heap upon each other, daily. One thing seemed certain, money has never been a deterrent of evil, just as being poor has never been a deterrent from happiness. It is “short-sighted” to believe we can bring resolution by throwing money at a problem. As if prosperity can’t walk glove in glove with misery.
