I try very hard to keep my opinions to myself most of the time. It’s not because I’m afraid people won’t like me, I really don’t care if you like me or not. I keep them to myself because people have become so closed minded that they refuse to LISTEN to what others think and say. However, due to the recent events I have decided to share my thoughts. Society has become so blinded that they have forgotten about the things that are actually IMPORTANT. Take the Dakota pipeline for example. How many people actually know what is going on there? How many people have taken the time to find out? Just because you see little memes on Facebook doesn’t mean you know the whole story. The stuff you see on the news is nothing new. We have been dealing with these same issues since forever. Racism, corrupt politicians, inequality, hate, greed, homelessness, murder, to name a few. All you have to do is know your history to know nothing with these issues has ever really changed because we are still seeing them on a daily basis. Everyone has a right to their opinion, but everyone also has the RIGHT to be respected no matter what they think or choose to believe. This society is broken, the system is broken and what is worse, the people are broken. You want to see changes made in this world then start by changing yourself. Let go of the mentality that you are right, that your way is the only way. Until the people decide to start looking at themselves as being part of the problem nothing in this world will change, and nothing will get better.
