i think i figured something out....
its not the tvs fault
honestly...all this hatred we're so "suddenly" expressing, isnt sudden at all. imean, during the american revolution, there were kids our ages out
on the front lines killing each other. we've always had to capacity to do such things but as age and the american dream is saying we should be
wonderful children, we're still stuck in the same #ing mindset all the kids were in the american revolution. its just going up and up and up and the
more restrictions and age limits they put on it will seem so much worse...but its not. the only reason it really is getting worse is because we have
bigger guns, sharper knives, and easier bombs. but hate is the same as it was 100 years ago and now we have to step up and realize that its not going
but if its been here all this time and we've been trying to stop it and it wont, then what can we do? what havent we tried?
well, we havent tried just accepting the fact that hate is a human reaction we all feel no matter how hard we try to conceal it. the black kid and the
white kid hold hands, the dork and the jock do a project together, and we think, hate is gone! but its NOT, thats the problem.
to me, this world and so many of the people in it are SO #ING BEAUTIFUL. but that doesnt mean we have to look at it with rose tinted glasses. but at
one time in every single human beings life, the first time they hold a pen they could be the next bradbury, the next joyce; the first time they hold a
paintbrush they could be the next picasso, the next basquiat. the first time we do anything we could be so wonderful at any of it, music, sports,
drawing, making someone smile, ANYTHING! and if to me, bradbury and joyce and picasso and basquiat are beautiful...then every single one of us is.
but when we choose to hide it, its the saddest thing ill ever know. and all the things we've ever wanted to do build up. good or bad, they build up
and one day we let it out in the purest, most defying, most exhuberent way we can.
thats why things like that kid dont surprise me, i see it every day in so many of my friends.
so quit lvoing behind closed doors. or else the day you finally open them, all you'll be able to do is scream.
