Paris, Orlando, Nice, Dallas, Jo Cox, Brexit, Philando Castile... I could keep going on but it's already too depressing. This is 2016.
Yes, the world sucks right now.
Bu it doesn't have to.
Hell knows, the world can be a beautiful and amazing place, and good things are possible.
Sure, there's always going to be bad somewhere in the world. Fact of life.
Utopias don't exist, and they would probably be mind-numbingly boring if they did.
If we could avoid a dystopia a la The Hunger Games, 12 Monkeys, 1984, Logan's Run, etc. though -? That would be great.
'But Cee, I'm just one person!'
Yes little nerdlet, you are, indeed, one individual. But the world is made up of individuals.
Amazing individuals who are beauty and light and intricate complexities of muscles and neurons all mixed together, thinking and feeling and loving and living.
One person can change the world.
I know, I know, I sound starry-eyed pie-in-the-sky right now. But I mean it. One person. You.
Small changes mean everything in this world my dear friend. Butterfly effect and all that jazz. Plus, not adding to the general crappiness going around has gotta count for something... right????
It's actually quite simple to change the world: don't be a jerk, and be nice.
Not hard, right????? You'd think so, but somehow we seem to be having trouble with it.
So join me. Because the world won't save itself.
It doesn't have to be much - put your change in the charity box, say 'thanks' or 'please' or 'sorry' as applicable... it's the little things guys. Help save the world.
