I don’t wear the clothes you wear, I’m just different and I don’t care. It’s kind of sad and it’s a shame; everyone wants to be the same. If you are listening here and now, I’m sure I can show you how it’s okay to be afraid. Don’t you wanna be special?

For as long I have been able to comprehend, elders have said in some way, shape or form that “…the world is going crazy…”
Last year this “crazy world” was supposedly going to end on a specific date. It didn’t. What has occurred since then has been an increase in acts of a despicable, ignorant and bereft nature:
The continued turmoil in Iraq
The destruction in Timbuktu
The bulldozing of an ancient Mayan pyramid in Belize
The seizure of Afrika
The ‘rebels’ exposing the hearts and livers of men in Syria
The killing of the natives in West Papua
The religious conflict in Myanmar
The apparent free reign of racists EVERYWHERE
It seems as though we are spinning backwards…
So this dude at a crowded bus stop in London, during rush hour, who wasn’t even getting on the bus that finally arrived, described the scene as a “refugee scramble” while he was on his phone. He had a big enough audience, I find it curious that he didn’t broadcast his ignorance and get ‘refugee’ scrambled.
The main international currency has been and always will be the ability to speak, read, write and comprehend in more than one lanuguage
