After I sat down to write down immediately, I noticed that I had a extreme case of author’s block. Moreover that, I had the track “Aquarius” from the musical Hair caught in my head. And that is when it hit me: the age of madness. Simply substitute the lyrics with “It is the dawning of the age of madness” and there you will have it, life within the US.
We live in a world the place youngster molesters go free, and the place some folks do not eat a single meal. But, members of PETA discover it essential to protest one of the crucial inexpensive quick meals eating places. They discover it essential to protest bare, when elementary faculty youngsters are coming residence from faculty on a busy street. Just one phrase involves my thoughts once I take into consideration this: madness.
The variety of folks receiving cosmetic surgery has hit an all time excessive. The Barbie doll is marketed to younger women because the “good” lady. Lately, in the event you aren’t a measurement two, blonde, tan feminine with massive breasts, you’re nothing to society. Anorexia and bulimia are on a regular basis phrases for teenagers. Everybody’s striving to be what is taken into account “good” in our society. Little women need to be Nicole or Paris, each of whom have points with their picture. No matter occurred to optimistic function fashions for younger women? Every thing immediately is guided by reputation, wealth, and picture.
We live in a society the place there are denims that price greater than my complete wardrobe, and there are vehicles price greater than my home. Celebrities go on tv displaying us the million greenback houses, automotive collections, wardrobes, and jewellery objects that they’ve acquired. In the meantime there are nonetheless folks ravenous within the streets, and youngsters going hungry everywhere in the nation. It’s loopy how folks solely take into consideration themselves.
The ozone is depleting and the nation is at warfare, but the Democrats solely concern is to make President Bush look silly. They do not give an answer to something; they only argue every little thing that President Bush says. The warfare is for an excellent trigger. The earlier we get our job carried out, the earlier our troops can come residence.
It is a day in age the place youngsters reduce themselves or kill themselves as a result of they do not “slot in.” There are children who convey weapons and knives to high school, or threaten to blow the varsity up due to the way in which different teenagers deal with them. It’s insane. Right here is my recommendation to the folks dwelling in the USA: 1.) Women: nobody is ideal. Discover a function mannequin that’s greater than only a fairly face. You would be the subsequent President of the USA, lawyer, physician, or instructor. All it’s important to do is put your thoughts to it. 2.) Boys: cease holding women to such excessive requirements. A lady doesn’t must be a measurement two, platinum blonde Barbie doll to be lovely. It’s the character that issues probably the most. three.) Mother and father: do not let your youngsters develop as much as be shallow, useless, and disrespectful. And eventually, four.) Everybody: take into consideration others. You aren’t the one vital individual on this planet. Should you see somebody who’s hungry, feed them, donate to charity, do one thing.
This can be the “Age of Madness,” however collectively, we are able to all do our half to make it develop into the “Age of Prosperity.”
