“You hear, about some kid did something stupid– something desperate. What possessed him? How could he do such a terrible thing? Well, (come here) It’s really quite simple, actually. Consider life of a teenager, huh? You have parents, teachers telling you what to do. You have movies, magazines, and TV telling you what to do, but you know what you have to. Huh? Your job, your purpose is to get accepted, get a cute girlfriend, and think up something great to do for the rest of your life. What if you’re confused and you can’t imagine a career? What if you’re funny looking and can’t get a girlfriend? You see, no one wants to hear it. But the terrible secret… is that being young, is sometimes less fun then being dead. Suicide is wrong…” – Mark Hunter – Pump Up the Volume
This quote is the quote that begins this post, where we begin, and where we will end. The topic of this post is about two things that have happened in my life, Bullying and Suicide. I’ve personally been bullied, and I’ve personally known over a dozen people that have committed suicide.
I often sit at my computer looking for something inspirational to write about, and yet find it hard to have inspiration. I look at the many topics and I see too many topics that just depress me to no end.
People are too wrapped up in their reality shows, and other distractions. The distraction currently in the USA is the Presidential Election, where one puppet will be replaced with another or perhaps it will stay the same.
In the mean time, people are distracted like rats in a maze with which of the two candidates are better for the country and which one has the best vision. The answer is their vision does not include you. It only includes those with the cash to put them in power.
Scared in a corner unwilling to think, unwilling to act, and unwilling to stand up and say NO. Unwilling to say we are one, and we have a voice, and if you are not willing to listen, we are willing stand up with arms, we have that right.
We the people has turned into sheeple, because no one is willing to put their head up out over the wall to see what is being done to their countries.
Here we are hitting the end of November 2011, and we are now seeing the occupy movements being targeted and slammed against the wall and forced to move out of where they have been occupying.
One city after another has filed injunctions, and ordered the occupiers to move out. Like one big conspiracy between the mayors of all the cities where the occupy movements are in, you can see them topple like a house of cards.
