This life and world we live in


 As war rages in the middle east politicians sling mud in the west. As people struggle to recover from a hurricane in the south the president is doing his personal relations campaign in Washington. As the wealthy look for more tax shelters the homeless use card board boxes as their shelters. No one said life was going to be fair, But some reason I just don’t seem to understand why it has to be so unfair. Though there are those out there trying to make a difference in the world, there are so many who would rather not see any change. As the ice caps melt the world fights over if mankind is responsible for it happening or not. Hmm.. Who cares who caused the problem, its obvious we can slow the damage and maybe even find ways to reverse it if we were to try. Sometimes the important things get pushed aside for the sake of ego and wealth a little too much in this modern world. Mankind’s biggest enemies are greed and vanity. But then Mankind’s greatest strengths are compassion and the ability to pull together in times of crisis. As I condemn mankind I am celebrating mankind’s abilities and achievements. I condemn even myself as much as I recognize my potential. It’s all just one big merry go round, this life and world we live in.
