Society values honest people


DIRTY hands are a sign of honesty.
Those who sweat and get their hands dirty should be honoured.
However, society tends to overlook them.
Society values those with clean hands and those who do not necessarily earn an honest living.
The ones who get their hands dirty supply us with food and keep our offices and streets clean.
We can do away with the majority of office staff, civil servants and bankers, but we cannot do away with farmers, builders and cleaners.
It is a shame that those who get their hands dirty don’t get enough while those who just spend their day sitting down get more.
We should stop thinking low of those who get their hands dirty.
I wonder what the world would be if we don’t have them.
