"Be the Change you wish to see in the world" -Gandhi "I will be a Hummingbird, I will do the best that I can." -Wangari Maathai "Where stereotypes begin with a grain of truth, cliches begin with a boulder" - George Watsky "And she's gonna learn, that this life will hit you - hard - in the face - wait for you to get back up just so it can kick you in the stomach, but getting the wind knocked out of you is the only way to remind your lungs, how much they like the taste of air." - Sarah Kay "Do not fear what has blown up. If you must, fear the unexploded." -Suheir Hammad

I just don't know what to say

It's heartbreaking to hear of Libya. It's heartbreaking to hear of the terrible things going on in the middle east, in more the one country, in order to start a new era of democracy. It's heartwrenching to know that if everyone just listened and humbled themselves, that things could be talked about. But pride has torn our world apart. We no longer see each other as brothers and sisters, with common problems, but as an enemy or an ally. We judge, ridicule, and torture others for things that are no different than our own problems. It's been said that things like meth, crack, or heroine are horrible addictive substances. Ones that do alot of damage to the partaker and the loved ones around the deadly substance. But there is a greater drug out there. A substance open to every individual. So subliminal, it goes unnoticed. It effects thousands with it's deadly side effects. It has been around since the beginning of time. It continues to effect our world. Everyone has divulged themselves in this drug. Pride, has reared it's ugly head to those as young as a newborn, to as kindhearted as a nun. Pride is the problem with us. We need to drop our pride. Tear down the wall of pride that divides people from one another, and unite against the troubles of the world.
There will be some who read this, and Pride will stop them from humbling their hearts and realizing they are part of the problem. There will be some who read this and are moved, and want to change. But Pride's deadly side effects will come in and change them back to normal. But the most desired outcome, is that you will read this, and it will hit a thread somewhere inside you, and you will forever truly change into a humble human being.
