.....and i'm not gonna take it anymore
i just finished watching a terrible movie - but one that made me pause
what are we all doing here? would our time not be better spent going out into the world and making hell i don't know a difference??
thing is, there are some wonderful writers here, some powerful intellects, some deep and connected souls
and what do we do, we blog
and that's not a bad thing - but in the midst of the turmoil that we call our world - is it enough?
i wonder if this is just a really nice ego massage and if in the end, all i've done is preach to the choir
late night ramblings - who knows? but i think maybe it is time to really DO something. yes i protested the war in Iraq. yes i got arrested. bloody fucking woohoo. we are looking at the end of freedom as we know it.
where are we headed? AND WHERE IS THE FUCKING OUTRAGE?
such a bad movie but the heroine was someone who fought in her own way - no expectation of recognition - all alone - and in the end she dies that way - BUT she has at her core a realization that she did what she could to try to make a difference.
god i just want to stand on my front stairs and scream - is anybody else as pissed off as i am?
who is this idiot we call president? why has no one said impeach the MOFO? Clinton got censured for a BJ for god's sake.
where is the indignation?
god, i feel like a motherless child
You cannot conceive the many without the one.

I feel all of the outrage you describe...but it isn't an emotion that I can sustain day in and day out and stay sane. I can't anybody if I live enraged and if I live insane....but I am real pissed off and indignant.|
Yup...this juiciness is from me....

On one level it is trivial and ineffective. We like writing, we like connecting so we enter the forum.|
On another level it is profound. A global network of personal lives and interconnections that may be anything from a casual comment to two beings who otherwise would not have met making love. It is living literature, organic and growing, in a way the world has never seen.
And each of us is a small player in the epic drama.

Maybe not the most effective way to make a change, but a start...I blog for the connections I get with people. These connections make me connect to the world. For me, I needed to develop my self confidence, my self knowledge that I am ok before I can go out and tackle the job. And YES! I wholeheartedly agree that one was brought down for a BJ while one is revered as a hero and is bringing down the world in the process!! Just have NO CLUE where to start on this one!!! Some jobs are just too big, even for me! -B |

Who says you are not exactly where you need to be, expressing exactly what you need to be saying to make a difference in the world? Do you need a pat on your shoulder for doing what inside feels right to you?|
WHY does it always have to be something heroic, before we recognize a life well lived? Sometimes just the fact that we have been a role model, is important. Because let's face it, some people on this earth were put here simply as role models to teach others what NOT to do.
Simply being compassionate to another human being, by holding a door unexpectedly, smiling when someone else needs it most - little that you would NEVER even guess, make a difference. Even the strong among us can benefit from these acts, because they hide thier hurts inside so well, that others do not see them - yes, you can make ALL the difference in the world just by being you.
Sometimes, even just throwing the first rock, at a big bully, can also change a life. Just standing up for what is right, in a small and quiet way, can make all the difference in the world. For if we don't speak up for others, who will speak up for us when they come to take us away?
