Kiwi Lockdown

Instead of compassion, we think of ourselves.
Instead of empathy, we display greed.
Afraid of what we may lose.
Afraid of inconvenience.
Get a grip.
Grasp perspective.
Stop judging.
Show good judgement.
In sickness and in health.
New Zealand.

This is the leadership I haven’t seen in over 50 years.

Hopefully, it will inspire a generation of politicians who are in touch with themselves and the people they serve.

This is the Prime Minister of New Zealand, comfortable with spontaneous interaction with the everyday Kiwi because she doesn’t see herself as anything else but a Kiwi.

It is time for a change.

From one grey-haired, middle-aged, man to the rest.
No matter what your occupation, it is time to let go.

To step aside and make good what we failed to deliver and assist those better equipped to make the changes for a better world.

It is difficult to hear, but we must put away our ego, control the testosterone and take ownership of our shortcomings.
