In my life, I've been considered a kindhearted person. It's something that I've prided myself on. As a child, I did what I could for anyone without a moments hesitation.
As an adult, however, I've become jaded.
This world has a way of taking those rose colored glasses we were as children and absolutely obliterating them. Our dreams become nightmares and we find that we no longer feel the pull to help anyone without any questions being asked, but that we look at the face of a stranger and immediately write them off.
With all the news these days of the election, of the bull crap going on in North Carolina, of all of the hate, it's becoming difficult to find anything humorous anymore. Everything has become so....serious. Who should use what bathroom, who should live where, who has a right to eat, who doesn't? It's absolutely MADDENING!
Women are being painted as these meek creatures. We are far, far from it. We are stronger than ever, but we are too afraid to show the world. We can't demasculinize the poor mens!! No sir. If we TRY to speak up, we are silenced. It's unfair.
This world has become efficient in hatred. That is heartbreaking to me, because I don't want this for the future. We are going backwards, not forwards. We are separate, not united.
It's time to make the country like we make our chicken wings....spicy! It's time to spice things up and make this country the country it USE to be, one that felt love.
I think we can do it.
Today’s post is a writing challenge. This is how it works: participating bloggers picked 4 – 6 words or short phrases for someone else to craft into a post. All words must be used at least once and all the posts will be unique as each writer has received their own set of words. That’s the challenge, here’s a fun twist; no one who’s participating knows who got their words and in what direction the writer will take them. Until now.
The words I got were: kindhearted~humorous~meek~efficient~spicy
