We often believe that we live in a world we just have to deal with.
When we complain, we are told that we just have to “get over it”.
When you complain some more, you’re told that’s just the way it is.
When you talk about do something about it, you’re told that it won’t work.
You have the ability to change the way things are.
If you don’t like the violence, do something about it!
If you don’t like the bullying, stop it.
If you don’t like the abuse you see in the world, help others and do something.
If you don’t like the cancers eating up the people in the world, do something to change it.
If you hate that our earth is dying, save it.
If you don’t want to see another animal on the extinction list….stop it from happening.
There are many programs that are in your area that are helping people – seek them out.
When you see things happen that you don’t like, help out the cause: blog about it, you tube it, speak out against the problem on facebook or twitter or tumblr.
There are many things in your school that help people with abuse, trauma, violence, drug abuse, etc. If there isn’t programs – CREATE them!!
When there isn’t a way to help people-it’s up to you to create it. There are so many problems that are crawling around our planet like ants. It’s hard to stop the ants, their billions of miles of tunnels snake through our societal teachings from the US to Canada to Japan all over the planet. But eliminating each piece…piece by piece, it can work. We can solve the problems and end the violence.
Think of all the problems in the world that are already solved…lets keep up the good work.
