I am very concerned about our country. I am concerned that our nations political idealogy is greatly divided. I am so concerned that we still have millions of people that romanticize the idea of going to war and flexing our military muscle around the globe.
I am concerned that the American dream has become a folk tale told by previous generations.
I am concerned that our country thinks that we should allow healthcare companies to profit from what should be a not for profit business.
I am concerned that our education system is broken. I am concerned that it is broken beyond repair from kindergarten to college. I am concerned that a quality higher education will be reserved for the upper class and elite few that can afford to spend over $240,000 to obtain a bachelors degree.
I am concerned that the automotive industry is greatly influenced by the oil industry. I am concerned that politicians around the world are greatly influenced and controlled by the oil industry.
At the same time I have never felt more hopeful than I have over the past few years. Readily available Internet access, wifi, 3g, 4g, Social Media, CNN, Wikipedia, Satellite up-links, word press, SmartPhones, iPhones, Android phones, text messaging, twitter, google, youtube, and the telephone have given each person a voice that can be heard around the world. The truth has never been so readily available. Lies and deceit have never been uncovered and exposed so quickly. The power that has been given to communities and countries has never been so strong. Companies and governments are being forced to change and make better decisions.
Don't just standby silently and wait for change to happen. Get yourself an outlet. Make yourself heard. Help others fight for their cause. Get involved damn it !
