A Good Day To Change

January 16, 2012

If you didn’t know today is Martin Luther King Day, but what does that mean to you? To me it means that if you are one of these people, who still want to live in the past and judge people by the color of their skin, and not their merit as a person…today is a great day to change. I have grown up in the South my whole life, and racism on both sides is still an issue. Will it ever truly go away? I don’t know, but you cannot worry about the other guy, all you can do is take care of you. I encourage you to find your own truth and not live by some bullshit your grandpa told you when you were 12. I am glad for the progress we have made in my generation. I think we have made huge gains in the areas of acceptance and equality, but some changes still need to be made. Besides life is way to short to carry hate in your heart anyways, it’s such a bullshit burden. We all need to realize at the end of the day, we are the only ones to blame for our short comings. If someone has more than you, and you want what they have. Just commit to succeed, and you can have it in due time. The South has spent way to long running on tradition. Tradition is nice, but at the end of the day it’s just an excuse for ignorance. Teach your kids, that we are all in this “life” thing together. I say to hell with all the social stereotypes. In 2012 we can all make an effort to be better people. I think MLK was a great man and the reason he is beloved, is because he saw the wasted potential in man. The energy it takes to hate another man, can be used in a positive way… if acceptance is practiced. So have a good MLK Day everyone, and if you are not who you want to be today…it’s a good day to change. Thanks for reading, post a comment if you like;)

If you can’t feel this, your dead on the inside my friends.
