So here I am back. School and newspaper work keeps me tied down for most of the time, although I’ve learned to balance my time once more. I can’t remember that I ever dida New Year’s Resolution; after all, I am not exactly the kind of person who makes elaborate plans for myself, relying instead on scribbled lists and pure intuition to see what is needed to change. However, I remember that I wished that there will be more peace in the world, and thus far, it seems that the wish has not been manifested in a concrete way.
Does anyone want to start with ISIS, the bombings, the suicides? I mean, hey, why does these problems never seem to end? Is it just because everyone is so helpless? Or is it because that no one cares?
I really hate it when I need to rant and talk about negative things, but I really wonder why can’t just people live in harmony and tolerance. I really wonder why black men need to be killed, why people can’t accept differences, the like. I really wonder why my own countrymen insist on being like a crab even though they see that it does not work!
I just don’t understand the culture of hate that permeates the world today.
Do we really need an apocalypse in order for us to realize the meaning and the value of being human?
Do we need large cinematic-like events in order to remind ourselves to smile, to be content, to laugh?
I know that it is not a good thing to talk especially as a lot of people are having holidays.
But we must learn to be human. If that means ripping the heart apart, then so be it.
Because no one knows when it will be too late for change…and when that time comes, there will be nothing but endless pain and regrets.
Thanks for sailing with this blog!
