I’m not sure how else to put this….
You know when you are watching a Sci-Fi movie and the opening scene shows a happy family eating breakfast while the watching news. The reporter is usually talking about some catastrophic event/ or some war / or some virus/ or some zombie but the mom and dad still continue to get ready for work and the kids continue to fight over the orange juice and life goes on?
That’s what I feel like is happening.
There’s so much that is WRONG right now with the world. Every news story, every image, every report – WRONG. And I’m at Starbucks asking for light ice. I feel drugged and I know that this isn’t how it’s supposed to be.
I HATE those opening movie scenes because I used to think – THAT WOULD NEVER HAPPEN! If a virus was spreading I would be in a panic. I would be running or making noise or doing something. But now I know… I would just pass the orange juice.
This month for Mother Earth has been unkind to say the LEAST. And I am not helping her which makes me feel like CRAP.
But I don’t know what to do. I don’t know how to help the war overseas. I don’t know how to help Ferguson. I don’t know how to help the flooded families in Long Island. I don’t know how to help Michael Brown’s family. I don’t know what to do. So I do nothing and I know that doing nothing is the WORST THING TO DO.
I sat down this morning for about an hour and watched the news.I havent’ done that in ages. I almost cried. Every direction. Every angle. Every story. HORROR. And here I am so safe and sound – doing nothing at all to help alleviate the pain.
Today is a test. I need to change my ways. I just don’t know how to start.
