I am so sick of this trend. No one person is completely evil or completely angelic. We are variances of each; situationally. And all life is… is a bunch of situations.
I just don’t agree with it. It reminds me of burning books. Maybe you don’t like what’s written in them, how it’s written or who said them but it still deserves a voice, if only for the fact that it existed and deserves to have its space and time acknowledged.
We all fucking make mistakes but what we need in this life, now more than ever is understanding and tolerance on ALL SIDES.
And the more people believe they have the high ground, the moral standing, are in the “right” the less apt they seem, to even try, to understand any other side but their own.
You know …..
People like to dismiss American Anglo (white) culture as almost invalid or non-existent. And I get that it has been a melting pot with influences and help from many cultures along the way, but it is its own thing too. Just like each region of this country has it’s own culture as well and its own history.
I think it’s a matter of representing all of history accurately. That I think makes a difference and letting people have their hero’s, no matter how sordid they may be.
I’ve talked to people that idolize Hitler.
There is no harm in getting to know each other. I have enjoyed getting to know so many different kinds of people in this world. I don’t and can’t hold people in contempt. I mean…. I truly try not to, it’s not my place to judge. Is it? It’s only at the point we are truly harming each other that I can point to some errors in judgement. But right now there seems to be harm or contempt coming from too many sides.
And I love this country too much to keep letting that happen. I would like so much to bridge gaps. If people could open their hearts more and just take a really good look around and see.
From the famous Boston accent to the bohemian Hollywood vibe, from the fun and sun of Miami to the breathtaking awe of the Pacific Northwest.
This country is so damn beautiful and soulful in its own unique ways. I am truly glad to be part of this amazing place. I truly am. Doesn’t make me proud of its problems; like racism and the other travesties happening in this country….. but really all around the entire world for that matter.
So my point is….. can we please stop fucking cancelling things and each other out. There is a place for everything. We must simply find that place. Together. There must be a win/win.
We are the most intelligent creatures we know (supposedly 🤷🏽♀️) and yet I can’t believe our fucking stupidity sometimes.😒🙄
