“It’s a disease. Nobody thinks or feels or cares any more; nobody gets excited or believes in anything except their own comfortable little God damn mediocrity.”
― From “Revolutionary Road” by
In this era of trolling, we opt to wage our agenda of malcontent from the comfort of home. We choose to disconnect ourselves from what could be bold or brave or courageous. We are Generation Meh, the era where it’s never good enough. We’ve engaged the codes to launch the comment box apocalypse, a spiritual ground zero that destroys all in its path.
How did we get here?
When did we accept mediocrity and started using anger to cover our fear of progress and change?
When did we just put our heads in the sand?
When did we accept the status quo because it was “easy?”
I see the rebellion in the form of people like Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, Beto O’Rourke, and Kamala Harris. What do we do? Tear them down.
What is “enough?”
What will turn this societal Titanic around?
What will make us all smile again?
It only takes one kind word.
It only takes us being able to say “I see you with respect.”
It only takes a moment, and you will see the difference.
A moment can change more than your patch of blue.
It’s just like falling in love.
That’s how we can change the world.
