Okay kids, I’ve had enough. The rants roll on through my mind, but they’re not the whole truth. Sure, I am bothered by the utterly whacked drivers around here who somehow mostly manage to avoid death despite the cellphones glued to their heads while banging u-turns going the wrong way into a one way street.
Sure, I am bothered by the petty gossip and manipulation and lies that make up our working social structure. Sure, it pisses me off that so many kids don’t seem to give a damn about anything but self-gratification.
And, yeah, it disturbs me on a deep level that the absolute idiot got re-elected and now I have to witness my country being driven to financial and moral bankruptcy so the war profiteers can bankroll their seven generations of inheritance.
The truth is, it breaks my heart.
I have been both gifted and burdened with a heart that doesn’t seem to have a shut-off valve. I think my Grammy is responsible for that because she had one, too. I am a ridiculous optimist, a true believer in the good of humanity… a lover of love and damn the repercussions. And I can no longer let things escalate into oblivion without attempting to wake the good people up.
C’mon guys, WAKE UP! We can do it. I know we can.
