I have been alone for years. I haven't put up a Christmas tree in years. I couldn't bring myself to it. There is too much going on in this world. It's impossible for me to be jolly in a world where money triumphs over justice and common sense, where children are killed in the name of religion or because some megalomaniac bastard thinks he's God. On 23 December, 300 people were bombed in Syria. A fighter jet against people waiting in line to buy bread. Blood stains on the rubble, body parts. No, I can't be jolly. They are people in the first place.
The Gulf of Mexico is no more. It's a dead zone. There is no way you can ever bring it back. There is no amount of money that can repair nature. Nature cannot be repaired, only preserved.
I wish I had the power to change things, but I'm just an average Joe who goes to work every day and who pays his bills. An average Joe who cares deeply about this beautiful Earth and the people living in it.
I pay a lot of taxes. But what good are they if they don't serve their purpose? Helping the needy, the sick and the weak in society. Instead, I see all that money disappearing in the pockets of the same corrupt bankers, politicians and corporate hawks.
To them, we are just assets. They will be eating at the fanciest tables and laughing through their hideous teeth, while somewhere else, not too far, families are struggling to get buy and children are wondering why Santa will not come to their place.
This world needs a makeover. It's something I think about every day. I spend hours wondering what I can do as an average Joe to contribute. I do small things, but I feel that its not enough.
There is good in people, everywhere. We need to get together and change things. The "officials" will not do it for us. The time to do what's legal has passed, we need to do what's right.
Merry Xmas to ATS.
