what have we become?

we are living in the twilight zone.

i’m old enough to not be surprised by much, but i’ll never be too old to be disappointed. that’s where i’ve landed today.

we’re living in an age where a woman’s pain and anguish is overshadowed by powerful men with louder voices. by rich men who take what they want because they know their defense can succeed by simply pointing at the other side in a fit of “whataboutisms”.

there are no winners and losers here. survival is determined simply by who is less dirtied by the mud-slinging.

is this who we are? is this what we’ve really become? is this who we really want to be?

we are citizens in a world that pushes back against truth by dictating the terms of how we consume our reality. the louder the voice and the more the phrase is repeated is how we become believers. we have become too lazy to search for truth. too lazy to realize how ignorant we’ve become.

in order to establish your truth, find a light. find your center. find what is real. not what’s been dictated to you. not what you’ve been told. not what you’ve been told to believe. fight for your knowledge, fight for your beliefs. your intellect isn’t dependent upon someone else’s negligence.

we don’t have to believe the same things. we don’t have to agree. but we do share this earth. we do share this community. what’s good for you should be in my best interests. we may fail, we may fall, but we should be helping each other out of the mud.
