Growing up my family was very pro-active. If there was something in the family that wasn't working, even the children could speak up and change things. In my elementary school and high school it was the same. i could always change things that i felt were wrong.
I am now living in the 'real' world. Changing things that i feel are wrong is so much harder. i hate the war. i hate that there is so much death and in so many ways i feel that the majority is directly the responsibility of the USA. Yet i can not change things.
There is a bumper sticker that i always see when i go visit my family, "if you don't like what we do, leave". So i left. but it doesn't change anything except now, i have a harder time voting.
I truly feel helpless when i see the state our world is in. From corporate rape of the environment to personal apathy of what happens to other, i some times wonder what will be left for the generation after ours.
