EDIT: Somethings in life are not pretty, but that is the reality man has made, and come to accept. If we wish to change we would have begun a massive transformation years ago. Sadly what used to make us weep is nothing more than a curiosity. Mental illness is real, suicide is all to real. When is the last time you offered a hand to a stranger in need? Before you criticize or pass judgement, make sure we are at level on a level playing field.
Yesterday I helped a stranger. A young African American kid that I came to meet and he told me that he thought his life was predestined to poverty and meaninglessness. I sensed he was very bright. I asked him if he considered going to college. He told me there is no way he could ever get into college. I told him he WILL get into college and next week I made an appointment for him to see a financial aid counselor and academic adviser. He will not be a statistic.
We all can change this fucked up planet and deliver it from mediocrity and pain to a god damn utopia if we only pull together.
