I would say you made the right choice. Why? First, she could have been silent about it and just died, but she was too scared of death calling out to
you for help. Second, even though it doesn't seem my generation can afford to raise children, it would have been very selfish for her to do that to
My generation has very little hope for the world right now and at the same time very little opportunity to run their own lives. Most of my generation
must depend on others to continue their existence, a state that causes great desperation. I will of course admit to suicide coming across my mind
quite a few times, but I have found one or two realistic potential hopes to help me with this generational depression. I know I have to see this
through to the end no matter what the outcome might be. I don't use ANY
drug to reduce or inhibit my depression. In my understanding I must not
drown out any feeling so as to absorb the meaning of every event no matter how depressing or awkward.
Most of the older generations still don't truly know how bad it is for my generation. We currently don't have the capability to move forward in "life"
like previous generations could. We can't "take off" from the nest like previous generations due to a lack of fuel to do so and at the same time
feathers begin to drop off from our frail wings due to the loss of so much hope. Some of us blame ourselves, but the wise among us know that it is
most certainly not our fault. I'm not truly blaming anyone for this as it is the system, not people, that limits us and we must find a way to overcome
it. However, remember that the older generations, if they survive, will come to the eventual realization of what was done to us and how they were
pathetically blinded to the truth. Perhaps there may still be forgiveness at that point, but remember it will not come easy and you should be
happy if we do as it will not come easy to us.
As for hope... perhaps Ron Paul will win the election and survive long enough to show people the light. However, there are a great many special
interests that don't wish that to be the case and he may be assassinated due to this. All it takes is a single well placed bullet to end a great hope.
Perhaps there will be another potentially greater hope, but this remains to be seen.
Out of all of this remember that my generation has very few resources to do much of anything other than barely making our voices heard and even that
can come at a great price to us. A few of us will stay no matter the cost, but remember by the time things become truly dramatic in the "public" (MSM)
eye it will already be too late for my generation to do much about it. All we have is our youth and even that isn't worth much anymore due to this
system. The older generations may think they have it bad, but the youth always takes the first punches and the harder they are the harder it is for us
to recover from them.
Please don't screw around, we just don't have the time for it.
By the way I'm 21 and going to the local community college. My grandparents are paying for it and I wouldn't be going if it wasn't for that. I'm not
dumb enough to go into debt for a worthless piece of paper. If things do recover, they won't be the same and those pieces of paper will have little
relevance compared to their cost. It is additionally worthless to me due to me being the type of individual who thrives on opportunity not previously
I know there are rough times ahead but don't you DARE
assume my generation as being partly responsible as we are not the ones who created or
supported this system. We will continue on trying to move forward as best we can, but remember we lose a little hope every time it fails.
I do hope the best for everyone in these times and I do hope Ron Paul wins, it would certainly make things a little easier.
