sometimes we need to get real. we need to realize that while we are making progress, there are things in this world that still need to be changed. yesterday i read a story about a british teenager who was made fun of and set on fire at a party, because of his sexuality. literally, he was set on fire. how do people do that? how does this happen? many things confuse me about humanity and why people do the things they do. there is so much evil out there, but if you pay attention there is good too, and i honestly believe that things can change and will change. i don’t know if this is some kind of naiveté or a hopeless state of hope, but we’ve changed in the past for the better, and although history does have a way of repeating itself, sometimes tradition needs to be broken.
