Who Am I?

Who Am I?

I am a fighter. I am a believer.
I want to live in a world that is free of corruption and greed.
I want to drink clean water and eat food that is free of genetic modification (Monsanto is evil)
I want everyone to be treated equally as brothers and sisters with no hatred or animosity.
It makes me sad and upset when I see people suffering for no reason.

I wonder if the human race was ever unified at any point in our evolution. I don’t think we were at all. I think we are still in our beginning stages of growth,and it is going to take another couple thousand years before we evolve into beings that can love unconditionally.
This also makes me sad. Knowing that I am part of a race, the human race, that thinks that the only way to get ahead is by lying, cheating, and stealing.

I want to take a stand for what I believe in. But I am afraid that no one will hear me. Or the ones that I want to hear me, will simply turn the other way. Others have tried before with Martin Luther King Jr, and more recently with the Occupy Movement. I want to see things change. But I think that the majority of people on this planet are afraid of change, so they stay silent.

I don’t really know what we need to effect this change, but I do know that it requires love and patience. I am only one person on the planet. I feel helpless and powerless. I have so much love to give and I just don’t know if people are ready to accept a “love movement”. Is our planet ready to accept such an idea? I would like to think so. Maybe I am naive, or maybe I put too much trust in others, but I think that if we all worked together for a common goal, we could succeed.

Away with government rules and greed. Corporate ideals and corruption. Our world needs a drastic overhaul. I may be speaking of things that can only happen in the imagination, but that is where ideas are born. Humans are mentally, emotionally, physically and spiritually capable of doing anything they put their minds to. My mother used to tell me that all the time when she was still alive.

“You can do anything you put your mind to.”

I know that is true.

I know there are plenty of people that are not willing to change because they are set in their ways. And I accept that. I can’t accept the world that we are living in today. It literally makes my heart hurt to see and hear about what we are doing to each other, and what we are doing to our children. I would love to see greed and hatred and all evil eradicated in my lifetime, but I am prepared if that never happens.
