I’ve decided to take part in the Daily Prompt a day late. (Does that make it the Yesterday Prompt?) When I read the original prompt, “Remember the seven cardinal sins? You’re given the serious task of adding a new one to the list — another trait or behavior you find particularly unacceptable, for whatever reason. What’s sin #8 for you? Why?,” I began thinking. And thinking. And thinking. And then it hit me. Our society has way more than just 7 “deadly” sins, as the Catholic Church calls them. We go day to day completely blind to what is actually going on around us. This is frustrating to me because I grew up in a religious school and home setting. Prayer every morning and every night, like clock work. It wasn’t until I graduated high school and got put into a world where not everyone had the same beliefs as me that allowed me to expand my thoughts and vision in a way I had never been able to experience before. There’s so much out there that is more than we know, more than we’re supposed to know.
My 8th Cardinal Sin: Being blind to what isn’t right in front of us
Because if we open our eyes, it’s amazing what we can see.
