"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

World Perspective

I don't really know where to begin. Sadly, this world always seems to get worse. Lies, Hypocrisy, Pain. All of this doesn't help with my image of the world. But I can't let it hinder it either. PEOPLE MAKE MISTAKES. This is how humans are designed. To make mistakes. To learn from our own mistakes, and those of others around us. Recently a "scandal" (for lack of a better word) has broken out around me. I have no affiliation with the people involved, but the story, the outrage of bystanders, and the knowledge of all the pain this people must be going through brought me to tears, almost immediately. Notice how broad this description is. You probably have an idea in your mind what it is about, but you are mistaken. This formula could be applied to anything. The purpose? To help all of you understand that things happen in lives of those that effect us. But is it our duty to spread them? No. If it was, would we have a need to for the media? (Think about that one for a minute),


Our world is filled with (now) 7 billion people. If you average (generously) one mistake a day:
That's 7 billion mistakes made in the entire world.
2,555,000,000,000 mistakes a year.


Each mistake has it's own severity level THAT DIFFERS DEPENDING ON THOSE WHO JUDGE. Who gave you the right to judge? Have you never made a mistake? Have you never done something stupid? Have you never broken the law of the land? Are you Jesus? Leave the judging to those who have been given the right to judge. If it's not in your job description, then please for the sake of my sanity, your sanity, the sanity of those involved, and the sanity of the world, butt out.


And if you're now sitting there thinking how terrible the world is, imagine this. For every mistake we make, we also doing something correct. In fact I would venture to guess the things we do correct is double our mistakes. 
So if there's 7 billion people.
That's 14 billion correct things happening daily.
5,110,000,000,000 positive things happening in our world, in a year.


If only our mistakes our highlighted, then how our we ever supposed to overcome, and be forgiven. Or worse, have our correct actions highlighted? Ultimately this is up to you to decide. The phrase, "One person can make a difference." is a lie. But one person can start a difference.
