Things We Take For Granted

Living in the United States of America we can tend to take things for granted. Such as the freedoms that we have. Like I've said before we aren't completely free but we aren't in bondage either. Some countries don't have it as easy as we do. They actually have to struggle through everyday life and while we sit on our rears eating potato chips flipping through the channels skipping over the news cause its unimportant to us and watching some stupid cartoon like Sponge Bob they are drinking dirty water and eating rotting food just to stay alive. That is what we should be paying attention to not some fantasies of childish adults in the US. I admit I tend to not watch the news but when i do I'm disgusted by the ignorance in us. We can make a difference but we don't try we just go through life taking every drink of soda and every bite of fresh food for granted. We need to open our eyes to whats around us. They are people too and we can help them live better longer.

The Liberties of Life

Life comes at you fast. I'm not talking about auto insurance. One moment you're in diapers and the next you could be graduating high school. Life comes with liberties and we can't let them go to waste. I know that we are in control of our liberties too. We aren't forced to do something we don't want to do. Sometimes it may seem like that isn't true, but this is a free country is it not. Sometimes it isn't. When you kill someone you will go to jail, but it was your free liberty that gave you the false right to believe you could kill that person. Liberties exist but not without their limits. Freedom is only so little as well. There is so much that can't be done and we call this a free country? THINK about it. Are we really free?
