World events are getting closer and closer to home, I am guilty of going a tad overboard especially on the oil spill catastrophe, not because of the
spill itself, but what it has begun to breed.
Its fine when we watch it on TV and it being someone else's problem, we have all done that, sure most of us feel a little twang of disgust or horror
at what we are witnessing, but now its on the door step of a lot of us, and people want to vent, but the targets are wrong, I always thought that
being like minded individuals that this site offered up answers to the problems of the World, how they effect us, and what we need to do about it.
Anger is building up in the vast majority of us, I lost it when I saw people standing on the Union Jack while protesting BP, I felt that it was
becoming an attack on everything British, and just like people from other countries take offence when something is done to their flag, I became the
same, and I apologise for that, it still does not alter the fact that we seem to be losing our way a little, and I thought we were better than
Steady would be the right word, I have become so confused as of late, we seem to be turning on each other when I thought we where supposed to be
fighting and trying to prevent the situation from getting worse, bringing the information, discussing it, and dropping possible solutions as we went
Look at where recent events have taken us, have we fallen for the propaganda? have we fallen for what they expected us to do or react as they expected
us too (TPTB) I really do believe we have and are, we are reacting to what is closest to our hearts and Families, we are turning on each other, and
it really does need to stop before we destroy what we hold dear to us.
Many of us come and we post our words of wisdom, our opinions, and we forget why we share those words, if your honest you can only call it as you see
it, what you have seen, give your insight on how you saw in your eyes the things which are effecting us all, it becomes hard to keep the personal
anger from entering our opinions, but as I said, we are targeting the wrong people and taking it out on ourselves.
If we are to help anyone including ourselves, then we need to see the bigger picture, the way I see it not a single member here is responsible for the
Woes of the World, we have a pretty good idea of who is, so lets get back to getting that information gathered and out to those who will listen.
Maybe it is time for that break away from this site I have been promising myself for a long time, it does make a difference when what you come and
share is appreciated, but does anyone feel their contribution is any more?
I feel sometimes what I share is just waved away like some tripe, as unimportant which is fine, maybe I am just afraid that if anyone did take any
notice, they would find a lot more truth and pointing to truth within what I try and share, I am no better than anyone else here, I keep my ear to the
ground, I absorb, I witness, I share, I feel some sorrow, and sadness, I try and understand, I even try and imagine how I would cope if it was on my
doorstep, terrible feelings sometimes.
Again I rattle on, so much to say and share, complete trash maybe, but it comes from a place so full of hope, am I dreaming?
