Today, it seems like more than ever we are conditioned to be sheep. To be tolerant when the old lady in Lake Merritt is getting robbed or when our country decides to wage another war. However, it’s clear that ignoring it won’t change the situation. These topics are thought “too heavy” for conversation because our reality is too real and we cannot live in fantasy anymore.
So we must use our own lives and relationships to organize in order to do something better. Organize a walk-out or a protest, start a petition, and educate others. While you’re at it WAKE UP! Wake up and see that the institution you spend over 20 years of your life in is holding you back. Keeping us asleep.
Educate yourself, go watch a speech, read a poem, get involved in a group that forces you to look outside yourself. Let’s work with our brothers and sisters of humanity.
