and im pretty pissed.
so when i said i wasn't going to update again....well that statement is now false.
im in the middle of reading a book for english. night. i usually dread being forced to read books for a class, but once i started reading it it imediatly left a mark on me that no book has ever done. its about the holocoust from the perspective of a holocoust survivor. its all fact. and i have never had the desire to cry for someone so much. the nazis used babies for target practice. read that past sentence again. its disgusting what hatred can do. i swear, anyone who complains because they have no plans for the weekend or dont have a boyfriend or girlfrind needs reality to slap them in the face because we are all so fortunate. i know im very fortunate and blessed to even have the knowledge to spell and read the thought that come out of head. and i think...i know that that is why i decided to stop the whole live journal thing. because everytime i go to read other peoples journals all i see is...i dont know what to wear to prom, or there's nothing to eat in my house, or my parents suck and i hate my family, or all i want is a boyfriend or girlfriend. im guilty of this too so dont think im just being a bitch. but seriously, if you are able to read this computer screen, or have a computer...in a house, with your family, and your refrigorater of food, and running water and plumbing where you dont have to worry about getting a cold because it could end your life or worrying about making it to your kemo sessions on time, then you know what...you are so fortunate. children in africa and india and china and all over the world dont have the advantages that we have. they dont have an education, and nice clothes. sometimes they dont even have a family or a home. they have to work 12 hours a day for probably not even 50 cents a week so they can feed themselves and their families. and you know what they're making? do you know what they're breaking their little five year old bodies for? our clothes. our cell phones. our television sets. our stereos.
and you know what we do while they're doing this...complaining to our computer that we dont have plans for the weekend. i know im humilitated at myself because im guilty of it. we are all guilty of it. and it you say you're not than you're lying. so please...next time you think you're job sucks or your family sucks think about the food you have to eat and the roof over your head and the love you have from your friends and family. take all of that and realize how blessed you are. and next time you're thinking about buying the $60 shoes or $50 designer jeans...just don't. because your not impressing anybody. and with the money that you save from feeding it to some big time manufacturer...you can save a life!
if what i just said affected you in absolutely any way....or if you have a heart at all you'll put your time to use and go to these websites and take action!
last but not least, a special thanks to the following people
nicole - heather - vickie - meagan - joe
those people are making a difference! and i love them so much for caring about the world! and i am so grateful that they are my friends!
please dont take any offense to this post...i just really hate seeing people take life for granted.
much love, light, and freedom-
