Happy 4th every one. As I have pondered on today’s post all I can think about are two things.. one is history..
And the second is Katy Perry’s fire work song.
I feel like we live in such an amazing time. So much so it has inspired me to create this to share a positive out look in what feels to be a nasty negative world. Media is a harsh problem.. what would the world be like if this media.. (Facebook, twitter, Instagram, and what ever else we use) was around when Martin Luther King Jr stood at the Lincoln Memorial giving his iconic speech? Would he have the same amount of people flooding the area to stand arm n arm marching in protest of
? Or would we be lost in our cell phones? Taking a snap chat of what was happening. Would we be impacted the same see and understand the same dream? It’s sad but what if we put our phones down for an hour and learned about the issues of today.. talking to real humans about what is actually happening.. how it’s effecting them. How would they solve it. How can we see the world differently? Dr King didn’t make an impact because he stood just behind the podium to speak. He impacted by hearing people by protesting by standing up and showing in masses walking hand in hand at what matters. He was the voice of many.
What matters to you? What would you do if you could help change one thing going on in the world? Why is it important?
We are able to vent so many things on social media sites but why do we not see an impact in masses? If we really care to change the world why is it that we only stop at the screen? Or if we do show in masses why is violence related? I am one that truly believes all lives matter.. so why do we feel we are better then someone else? How often do you ever just sit and talk to people? To hear a new side without getting offended or judgemental. When was the last time you opened your hearts before closing your mind??
I guess my positive thought is if we have come this far in history before then we are able to come far in history now. I truly think that there is so much good out in this world. That we just need to slow down. Put our phones down and listen to what someone is trying to say to us. We are so busy, so lost in what is on our screens that we lose sight of the beauty off the screen. Take a step out of the comfort zone to really hear something. Be a the change. Make the impact.
As for the Katy Perry song.. here you go. Be a firework.
Do you ever feel already buried deep six feet under?
Screams but no one seems to hear a thing
Do you know that there’s still a chance for you
‘Cause there’s a spark in you?
You just gotta ignite the light and let it shine
Just own the night like the 4th of July
‘Cause, baby, you’re a firework
Come on, show ’em what you’re worth
Make ’em go, “Aah, aah, aah”
As you shoot across the sky-y-y
Katy Perry firework
