How more screwed up could our world get these days? Honestly! Have you ever sat down and really thought about the things that are going on? Does it make any sense that our troops are still in war over something that doesn't even exist, that all of a sudden we care for all those poor people who died in New Orleans, or perhaps I'll should ask why doesn't a dentist work on his own children's teeth, why is it that a cop's son always seems to end up in jail, a mechanic never fixes his own car, a pastors daughter almost always loses her virginity before college? It just doesn't come together, is there a book somewhere that reads in big bold print to go against people's words; or maybe people don't understand... they don't really know what is going on, they only see and follow.

They don't do what they believe is right or wrong, they do what others think; therefore, if they get harassed, they can blame it on someone else, which happens to make no sense - mostly because our minds have been corrupted by society; we depend on it.

We think if we don't look like the people we see on the television that we will never fit in and we will be pointed out easily by others. That's why people don't blame anything on society... we are all too afraid, we think that there are people watching us, lessening to every word we say, waiting for the perfect moment to criticize... How long is it going to take for someone to step up and say, "I don't care what people think. It's my world and I am not afraid to live it my way."
