Some things are not visible to us, but they are still there and we should still care. They are there in us, and they are there in other people. If we ignore them both they and we, suffer.

I’m thinking of human qualities like Trust, Loyalty and Respect. These act like binding agents between people, in groups, communities and even nations.

Because they are such powerful factors in relationships, when they are damaged or absent, the negative effects can be extremely powerful too.

If Trust, Loyalty and Respect are valued, they can be cherished and nurtured. When they are not the results can be painful and even catastrophic.

Once two people are on the slippery slope that leads to contempt it’s hard to struggle back to a place where meaningful repairs can be made.

But it’s not impossible, where there’s a will there’s a way.
