What a year? Am I right?
Glad to be alive and truly hoping that all these upheavals we are living through will have a positive effect on the world and in my life. Somehow, someway, don’t ask me how?
And honestly, I’m actually really happy to see the United States trying to address systematic racism proactively. We need to help the communities and people that suffer unjust discrimination before they suffer needless hardships or become a burden.
This isn’t solely a US problem or solely a white and black problem. It’s a human issue that happens almost all over the world. People suffering through extremely difficult lives and circumstances based solely on their looks: their identity, their race, gender, color, etc. How could one not lash out at the world at such unfairness? How can we as a society not expect them to be angry and violent?
And I really hope that we, in the US, can make real inroads towards a livable equalibrium and show the world how to be much more egalitarian and compassionate.
It’s a hope at least. But if the government, corporations, schools, and other institutions won’t do it then it’s our job, as moral, conscious, caring people, to do all we can to support those being hurt by the unfair systems in place. Not turn a blind eye. Not leave it to the next guy. Not pretend it’s not real and go about our lives because it may not affect us all that much.
But the thing I’ve learned is that either a person already cares or they don’t care. Trying to get anyone to understand the pain endured by someone completely unlike them is difficult and it’s usually a leap they don’t really want to take.
I can’t go on Reddit anymore. The sheer amount of vaccine propaganda is absolutely unbelievable. I get that it skews really young so they “need” to be indoctrinated but Jeezus and the censorship and absolute beat down of anyone not “on board” is really stark.
I’m kinda getting over the dating app already and it’s only been 4 days. Here I thought I’d last a few months trying it out and hopefully finding someone cool to hang out with in that span.
I tend to do things spur of the moment, but I did pay for the whole month. Soo……let’s see how long I last I guess. Lol
I really wanted to get our Christmas tree today, but I don’t think I have time. How my days go from excruciatingly boring to a dozen things to do at once never ceases to amaze me. Lol. Bad time management you’d think but it isn’t. These are generally things outside my control. I’m just accepting life as it comes at me and keeping hope alive for some miracles.
