Looking at what is going on in our world this week I can see that trust has gone in many circumstances. Trust is something that we need to have to live a fair and decent life. Trust is our belief that people are honest and good or that something is reliable and safe. We trust our friends until something happens so that we no longer trust them. We trust others to do a good job, to deliver goods properly, to keep our secrets and to be there for us when we need them.
Animals trust us too. They trust us to feed them and care for them in the proper way. We trust them to look out for us too, those that can like dogs. The birds trust us to feed them when there is no food around.
We trust those in charge to be fair in their dealings with us and we trust them to make sure that we have what we need. Sadly there are many people in power who cannot be trusted to do these things. So what can we do about it? How can they restore that trust?
Do you trust others? What makes you lose that trust in others? What do you think we can do?
