As I sit and think about all that’s happened, I wonder. What is this world actually coming to? Why are people cold and heartless for no apparent or obvious reason? When did it become socially acceptable to be ignorant? Let me clarify what I mean… There was a time when people of color were proud of their heritage and lineage. They found it unacceptable for their children to behave poorly when not in their presence. Women cherished and respected themselves and others. In so doing, men respected women.
What has happened to this world we live in? What happened to giving peace a chance? When did we stop loving each other, and started loving and needing things? Why is it that the average American child barely speaks fluent English, but has a million twitter followers? How is it possible that if you’re wealthy in this country, you can have it all, but if you’re not, you’re just NOT….When I say you’re NOT, I don’t mean you don’t exist. I’m making a comparison to the differences that never seem to add up. It doesn’t make sense for this country to have so much wealth, and still have a homelessness problem. How can a wealthy murderer be free, but a poor murderer be sentenced to a life sentence? That doesn’t sound like justice to me.
Since my youth, I’ve considered myself a patriot. Land of the free and home of the brave. I loved being an American. Now, I have begun to analyze what that really means……
