A – Change the world.
Q – How are you going to do that?

Q – Why can’t you be like the rest of us and just find a job and make money?
A – I’m different.
Have you ever thought you were destined for great things? I know I am. I’ve known it my whole life, only I’m not quite sure what it is I’m supposed to be doing. Who knows? Maybe I’m doing exactly what I should be doing by expressing my thoughts in this blog. I really never know who’s reading it. My only hope is to get through to anyone who stumbles upon it.
I see so many things in this world that I want to fix. Too many to even list in this post. I sometimes think we’re doing it all wrong. I wish there was a reset button that would take us back in time, before the industrialized revolution so we could do it right. By saying “do it right” I’m referring to the green way. Working with nature instead of against it. If I could change anything it would be our dependance on oil, which is destroying our only home.
I’ve tried to focus on one issue at a time, but there are just so many things I want to change I often become overwhelmed with it all. I see where our future is headed if we don’t come together to make these necessary changes and it’s a scary thought.
What really concerns me is that so many of us are too distracted by things that don’t really matter (ego, material possessions, status…etc.) to pay attention to what is happening in the world around us. What’s worse is that some of us simply don’t care.
The “let someone else fix it” attitude isn’t helping and I won’t judge and call these people selfish. If they were truly selfish, wouldn’t they want to make a better world for themselves and the people they care about? Not at all, they’d rather just sit in front of the t.v. watching reality shows wasting their lives away while ignoring things that are destroying our planet.
No, I’m not blaming the problems of the world on reality t.v. I’m talking about the fact that our society is based on consumerism. Television is simply the brainwashing medium by which this message is delivered and received by all who become hypnotized by it.
Thankfully, not everyone is like this. Myself being one of them. We are living in a time of great importance. We need to change the way we do things now, or suffer the consequences of our shared ignorance and lack of action in the not-so-distant future.
I’m inspired by others who are as passionate about change as I am. Watch this video and see how a 12-year-old girl silenced the world with her thoughts.
