Don’t tell me you can’t handle what’s going on in this country right now. Don’t tell me it’s just too much or that you are emotionally spent, or that you don’t have time to pay attention, or that you are depressed. I don’t care. I don’t care that you are frightened or sad or overwhelmed. I don’t care about your fragile emotional state or that you would rather post about your favorite celebrity or sports team. Suck it up and deal. It’s your responsibility to pay attention. It’s your DUTY as an American and as a human being to pay attention to every single minute DETAIL of what’s going on. If you don’t, you are as much to blame for what happens to this Earth and its future as the monsters in the White House are. In fact, you are more to blame because only in numbers can the masses overcome those in power. Only in numbers of people who PAY ATTENTION can we ensure that those in power work for us and not themselves. It doesn’t matter whether you are a liberal or a conservative, Democrat or Republican. Your race, gender, sexual orientation has no bearing on this. Stand up, take your share of the OWNERSHIP for what is happening, read reliable news sources, don’t spread political or religious gossip, be in the know, empower yourself, stand up for what is right, be a good example for your children. Everyday, I see people around me ignoring world events, remaining deliberately ignorant, telling me they are depressed. I don’t care, I don’t FREAKIN’ care how depressed you are. Suck it up. It’s your future, but more importantly, it’s the future of your children. I don’t even have children but I care. What’s your excuse?
