People die every day and in every kind of way. People get murdered, raped, robbed. They get beat up, fired and harassed. It’s tragic and scary when children get shot up at school and when some children go missing.
BUT DON’T FORGET…
People live every day and in every kind of way. People fall in love, make love and give to others. They stand up for what they believe in and succeed against all odds. Children go to school to learn and play with their friends.
That even though there are terrors in the world, there is also much more good to counter. People are so use to living in fear that they forget all the good. People are generally good. Play with your neighbors, build a community, don’t be afraid of the unknown person. We as a collective of human beings need to remember that we are the majority and that the 1% would crumble if we all realized what that power means.
We need to find that thing that ponds us all as a team. I’m open for suggestions. Let’s cause a revolution or crawl in a whole and die.
That’s just my opinion.

I want to give everyone a voice, so let me hear it people.
Today I went and got my hair cut. As I sat there waiting for my turn, flipping through a few Cosmos and GQ’s, I noticed that the other three adults waiting for their turn were all on their cell phones. The one kid, waiting for a parent, was eating his sucker and watching the world go by out the window.
We got it wrong.
It’s not youth and their technology ruining society, it’s us adults. As adults we are intreguided by technology. It’s new an interesting and makes life easier. Like any behavior, keeping your face in technology at all times is not something that people just do, it’s a learned behavior. If we adults don’t get it together soon and spend a little more time eating suckers and looking at the world go by, we’re going to miss a lot more than that guy who got out of his car in gym shorts and t-shirt and was steaming. Hilarious. But had I been looking at my phone like all the other adults in the room then that kid and I would not have been able to have a laugh together.
I don’t even know that kid, but that moment was worth not having my phone out.
That’s just my opinion.
