    Heck Yes

    You know, the world is so screwed up nowadays and it feels like I'm just a small pinprick of nothingness wasting space in this world, meaningless and insignificant and I hate it, so I'm done being just an American, I'm tired of labeling myself with things in some poor atempt to...

    I Am a Citizen of the World

    I'm a patriotic citizen of Earth who is saddened by the way humans are running things. This place is my home and has been for a long time. Sometimes I think we'd be better off if humans had never entered the scene.

    But Sometimes I Wonder If I'm On the Right Planet

    The title says it all really.  The narrow mindness of many people really frustrates me.  The world would be a much better place if we all could live as one.  Imagine.

    Yes, A Citizen

    I am, aren't you? Or do you want to be recognized by your ethnicity? Or your economic status? Or perhaps you want to be classified by your beauty? Or your power? Well I prefer to be known as simply me, a girl who belongs to this beautiful land known as our Earth.

    Seems like simple common sense that we are all in this together.  Okay, except maybe the war-mongering wealthy overlords.  They can go somewhere else as far as I am concerned.

    A Citizen Of The World.

    It's not that I think we should erase borders from our maps (although I do fantasize about that), I just think it would be better for us to drop the nationality label - American, British, Spanish, French, etc. - and just call ourselves human. I think it's nice to have that...

    Never Liked Labels

    I never liked labels and given the fact that we know that the 'purity' era is over: pure German, pure English, pure Mexican - it seems only right to say that I too am a citizen of the world. When I think of a citizen of the world - I think of someone who knows, respects and...

    I'm not saying I don't judge (because that would be impossible) but I do think that everyone deserves a chance to be judged without stereotyping at least once. I don't think that everyone is equal, but I do think that we are all equally human...and that is enough.
