I wish this song had been released…
Its been to long. In the 1960’s the youth of that time started the civil rights movement, teenagers all around the country played an important role, they were young, spirited and passionate. In the 1970’s the youth rose up against comforty and told the world we are bad asses and we will not follow your path but our own. In the 1980’s the style of the day took over we as youth were strong and were our own person. 1990’s we started dialing down our rage, but we still knew how to fight for what was right, we were inventive and creative. So now we are in the 2000’s, but we have done nothing. We are docile in the face of a world that is crumbling around us.
America was attacked, we went to war, sexism is raging, countries are killing there people, we are being poisoned by our food, people are starving, people are dying, and worst of all our youth is doing nothing.
I always thought i needed a cause to start trouble, but it took me till now to realize I have more then enough to choice from. What happened to fighting for what was right, for doing something noble, for being courageous in the face of total evil. Lets not start with the problem but the problem solvers, where are they? Why arnt they calling out?
So this is what I have to say to my generation . Stop thinking these problems will be solved by someone else, they won’t. We know our government is corrupt and our country is in serious need of help. Its just as black and white as it was years ago. Lets start a movement to save ourselves from our own destruction. To offer inspiration to those who will come after us.
We are the solution to the problems of today.
Just woke my brother up at 11:00 at night, told him it was morning and to get up. He didn’t question me till he was fully dressed and waiting for breakfast. Beautiful.
Big Brother is finally here. After reading 1984 I was horrified at the idea that someone could always be watching, but the system for such a thing is finally here, and is now available to the public.
What’s going to come with a loss of privacy.
Invisible Children, new video
Walls will not confine me, countries will not limit me, languages have seized to fluster me and I refuse to let my race define me.
Simplicity is the best problem solver there is.
On January 24th, 2011, a representative of the Toronto Police gave shocking insight into the Force’s view of sexual assault by stating: “women should avoid dressing like sluts in order not to be victimized”. A tremendous outcry followed this statement leading to the first SlutWalk taking place in Toronto on April 3rd, 2011. Immediately, Toronto’s sentiment spread throughout the world, with women, men, and children taking to the streets to demand their right to live without fear of sexual violence based on their life choices; clothing, work, lifestyle choices, etc.
HOW TO LOVE A WOMAN
“You may not be her first, her last, or her only. She loved before she may love again. But if she loves you now, what else matters? She’s not perfect - you aren’t either, and the two of you may never be perfect together but if she can make you laugh, cause you to think twice, and admit to being human and making mistakes, hold onto her and give her the most you can. She may not be thinking about you every second of the day, but she will give you a part of her that she knows you can break - her heart. So don’t hurt her, don’t change her, don’t analyze and don’t expect more than she can give. Smile when she makes you happy, let her know when she makes you mad, and miss her when she’s not there.”
