Happy New Year!🎆 / rant time / posting this to look back on quickly /
It is 2017 anyone who is bringing you down at this point in your life, you just need to forget and keep living your life the way you choose to. 2016, you have been a pretty bizarre year. I've made new friends, became closer with some, let go of grudges, been hurt, changed my perspective for the better, went to my first music festival, became a vegetarian, and simply experienced life and new things on different levels. Thank you to everyone who has been a constant in my life - for the continuous support, love, and motivation.
On the other hand, it's been a pretty sad year, nationwide. Hate has inclined through racial profiling, religious persecution, the killing of Harambe (I'm serious), chauvinism, political correctness, double standards, patriarchalism, and the list goes on. We only have one world. We may be diverse and have different opinions and beliefs (you might not even be pro of what I'm saying right now [or you may not even read this haha]), but we are all the same. The makeup of our skin, flesh, and bones is the same. In upheaval, ongoing wars continue everywhere from Syria and Iraq to Columbia and Peru and everywhere above, below, and between - Palestine, Ukraine, Afghanistan, DR Congo, South Sudan, Libya, and more. If we don't start accepting people for who they are now, by the end of the year, we'll start a civil war within our own communities. Don't let us be the death of us. Make a change. Sincerely, 2017
P.S. If you actually read this, sorry for the rant (not really). ✌🏼
