I know I am going to get a rash of negative feedback about this post but I am going to write it anyway. I have to wonder what the world would be like if we took all of the time and energy spent by people on Facebook and spent it on becoming awake and aware and begin trying to solve the worlds problems! It is just plain frightening to see so many people oblivious to what is going on in the world. People are living on Facebook, listening to the nightly news of propaganda every night and reading the trash being put out in news papers. This has become the tale of two worlds. Reality vs fabricated BS. I know everybody loves their FB and the communication with people it provides, but how can we be a bit more responsible with it and use it for the good of mankind rather than just posting what is going on in our own small little worlds?
America is so distracted these days by the internet, social media technology, television, and trying to figure out how to stay afloat in a sinking world. It seems like everybody’s mind is in full swing concentrating on everything but what is going on around them. They know all about the fake news, what is on their friends Facebook pages, what television shows are on when, but they know very little of the truth of what is going on in the world. How can Facebook postings be more important than the fact the Gulf Oil spill is still spewing forth and destroying the life of everyone living down there? How can we not care about our fellow American’s lives being destroyed as well as the Gulf? What? You didn’t know it was still going on? Exactly my point!
I am not putting everybody into a big lump sum, I know some people are more aware and responsible than others and I respect that. I just think it is time for America to think about what it is doing, how it is spending its time and energy, where it is headed and what we can do to turn things around. It seems time to jerk our heads out of the sand and take a look around. I keep an ongoing list of websites on my blog where people can read the REAL news and hopefully awaken. I’m not saying to stop Facebook or tweeting or texting altogether, just back off a bit and use your free time catching up on the truth of what is happening to this country. If we don’t pay attention and begin to make changes who knows where we will all end up.
It is time as we enter into this new world we are creating, to pay close attention to our lives. If you pay attention you know what is going on, you know yourself and you know what direction you need to take your personal life in. You also know where your country is failing and what needs to be done to move it forward. If we don’t care, who will? If we do nothing and do not take a stand how much longer will we be free? We must stand up and make it clearly known that we will not be oppressed any longer. It is our unalienable right to be free to pursue the lives we dream about. Up until now we have not known we were being oppressed, now we do, what are we going to do about it?
Blessings to us all,
