In Canada, Since 1872, the average length of an election campaign has been 50 days. It must be nice. They seem to have a handle on streamlining the process.
What if it went away, what would people do? Sometimes it’s a distraction. People somehow have made a fortune from it. Maybe posting pictures of your food on your blog would be good or better. Jennifer Aniston took forever to get in on the action. What’s your position on “the Gram”?
The worst attitude is to say I got mine and forget the rest of you. Selfishness is a moral issue in as much as anything. Restricting the rights and freedom of anyone means that everyone is at risk. People are making decisions from a place of their own perceived power with the sole purpose to make life hell for others. There is nothing great about this.
Universally we desire love, peace, companionship and comfort. Specifically and individually we have needful things like romance, faith, spiritual awakening and sex. It’s good for humanity for justice and reconciliation. How we realize those desires is a deeply personal thing.
Everyone wants to be heard and we fear these things we want not being realized in our lives. Desire is something we communicate through our words, looks and language. People need things that make life worth living. We feel desire in our bones and in our souls. Let our desire come from a place of goodness and never evil.
No one should live in fear for their lives or the lives of people they love. Using threats to scare people is not what civilization is about. Keeping the status quo by violence is just plain wrong. It’s serious when instruments of destruction are used to harm or kill. There has to be another way, maybe not being selfish and being kind is a start.
One of the most adult things one does is pay bills. They add up fast and money doesn’t grow on trees. Trying to keep up can be a challenge when you have everything from mortgage/rent, utilities, medical, education, car, TV/Internet, food, phone and insurance. When its due all it once you find your bank account screams at you. I’m not a fan of spending money on all that but you know it’s what we do to keep the lifestyles we have become accustom to. We work sometimes just to pay to live. Nope, don’t like adulting this much but its gotta be done.
Freaks and geeks are in the circus that is life. They are the not the side show but the main attraction. Home is in the center ring under the big top wherever that might be in their lives. The thing about it is that they are not everyday, hum-drum, average, no they are much more. God gave them gifts that are so special and when used they can change the world. That freak and that geek is a human with a heart that is big and a soul that is deeper than any ocean. You too might just be one without even knowing it.
Some of us sacrifice in different ways for a higher purpose. Many have given careers, money, relationships and their lives so others can have a better life. To me sacrifice is personal and to say one person’s sacrifice is not the same as another diminishes the whole notion of giving up something for someone or something else.
