The vexing social decay that is spreading across Belize has become an increasing cause for alarm and indeed, deep concern about the future well-being of our nation. Such state of affairs gives even more compelling reasons for needing, as the theme of this Lions’ conference states, “Many hands, One Heart, All eyes” in service to others, and as the Lions Club continues to distinguish itself in doing. So much evidence continues to stare at us through reports in the mainstream and social media each day. Criminal activities and all forms of abuse and violence continue to endanger individuals, families and communities. The increasing poverty and socio-economic disparities; apathy; high unemployment; increasing incidence of diabetes, cancer, alcoholism, drug abuse and other major health problems; breakdown of family and community values; quiet and disturbing increase in incidents of self-inflicted death especially among youths; unlawful sexual behavior; deeply embedded discrimination by race, ethnicity, class, gender, sexual orientation and religion; and declining standards and quality of leadership; all strongly warn of a bigger social storm that is brewing ahead. This social disorder that we are seeing is really only the tip of the iceberg. Mindfulness: A way to transform the collective mind-state and make Belize a much better place
