I’ve been so damn cynical the past 5 years, but lately reading about the great that people do in the face of tragedy slowly is diminishing that. You don’t hear much about all the good that goes on in the world, because that doesn’t sell so its easy to forget that we as a species can be beautiful creatures, producing beautiful things.
This tragedy in Oklahoma is truly devastating, but reading and seeing that so many people are willing to help out others they don’t even know truly warms my heart.
Human beings aren’t worthless, we aren’t shit. We are beautiful and I’ve been slowly regaining the vision to see beyond the bullshit and recognize this.
I know I can be quite the angry, bitter and judgmental person who focuses on shit that doesn’t have an affect on me at all, but being able to recognize the good is something I will NEVER lose, no matter how bad things seem to be and I need that.
When you lose that, you have nothing left to lose, and I truly believe that.
