Rose-colored Glasses

when i was little i thought this world was so great and there was nothing evil in it. then one day i was really dissapointed in my mom for some reason, and i just  wiped my eyes clean of those rose-colored glasses. i saw the murder,crime,war,sadness,stress,poverty and i just started to break down in the inside but on the outside i was so angry at this world for not being perfect. now im 15 and im still  angry but i realize i cant change anything. so i just keep walking one foot in front of another.

You can change things. Sometimes people say you can't because it relieves them of feeling the burden of helping out. I have seen lots of changes in the world around me because of my efforts. It starts with one person - you can at least effect a few - get involved with groups that help and you will change many more. Find out the injustices that you are most connected to and find groups that volunteer to help fix the problems. You will be amazed at what you can accomplish

Your philosophical outlook i find to be ironically inspiring,....its like someone writing poetry in a war zone..

Nearly a yearon I have to wonder what you are thinking now.You cant change whats happeningin the wider worl but you can change the world around you if you want to.
