Am I the only one who thinks the apocalypse is already happening? Everyone seems to think it’ll be like one huge event of mass destruction. Personally, I think we’re IN the event. We’ve demolished entire species, we have earthquakes, volcanoes, war, tsunami’s (I really don’t remember EVER hearing about a tsunami as a child yet now it has a name). China is a huge country and they have apparently been so overrun by their government that they would rather step over a dying child than attract attention to themselves. We have taxes on taxes on taxes. Our sky is dying from our contamination and so is our water. Millions of people die every year from starvation, dehydration, or overexposure to the elements because we are unwilling or unable to protect them. We’ve reached the apex and we’re standing on the precarious brink of having to choose between us and them. We were all originally born into a world where the strongest and fittest survived, and now it’s the richest and most devious who rule. How far have we really come? Either way you look at it, we’re still being bullied to death. At least the strongest and fittest were honest about their agenda, kill or be killed, now it’s slave your life away to serve the betterment of the rich. Some of the some highest paid people in our countries ALL work in our governments. Are they worth the price they cost?
Oh and did I mention the ever increasing suicide rate? Not to mention the avg age of those committing it is decreasing, meaning more and more young people are choosing death over life. And why? Perhaps because with every passing year we lose more of our ability to instill hope amongst our youth. We can’t reach them, don’t reach out to them. We’ve separated ourselves from them. If you were/are 18 today, how does the world look to you? What does your future look like to you? We used to live with multiple families sharing an open cave, now our children sleep on separate floors. We cannot let this world scatter us, we must regroup, we must return to what matters, community.
What’s next for humanity? Where will we stop? When will we wake up and see the big picture and not just the one the media and government want to sell to us? Is this the time for mass panic? If not, when?
Okay so that was likely a bit depressing but it’s something we need to hear once in awhile. Not so we can sit around and feel bad for ourselves, but so we can move forward. Create goals, make changes, cause some ripples. Mostly my message is for us all to take on the responsibility of giving not only our children, but also ALL children, hope. We need to let them know that whatever this world brings, they matter to it. That they are right there with us, slugging it out, holding our hands. A world without hope is a very dark and depressing place to live. Let’s shine some light. Let’s get outside every day, get involved in our communities, join Big Brothers, adopt, VOLUNTEER. Stop huddling behind our laptops, pc’s and video games and rejoin the community that surrounds us. Let us all change the world one child at a time. Are you with me? 🙂
