But the fighting on a continual basis is tiring. It seems that the only comfort or relaxing I get these days is in my sleep time, and that is more tossing and turning than serene. I am not complaining here. At least I know what I want to do in life given the reality, Yet I had hoped more of us would have put a stop to the insane ownership of our society by the wealthy powerful few. We have a democracy that although is rigged in many ways still lets us chart it's direction should we so choose. But unfortunately not enough of us get that sense of urgency that is real and instead disregard our right to vote for the future we all would benefit from.
I on the other hand do get the sense of urgency and although I am now much older than many who still have long lives ahead of them, continue to push the current societal paradigms toward more democratic policies. Why do I care? Because I view the rightness and goodness of our species and since I share that status do not want our legacy to be one that bowed to forces of a nefarious nature. We are an amazing species but at this time in our evolution, we are less so because we cannot seem to care enough to be proud of who we really are and change what we aren't into something we are.
