Losing Hope

I'm losing hope, and I need to escape before I become a lifeless zombie. I feel like I can no longer connect with anybody I know. I have dreams to do great things; I want to travel the world helping people and trying to show others the potential humanity has to do good regardless of race, religion, culture, or education. Right now I'm trapped in the middle of the deep south of the US where hypocrisy and ignorance are slowly suffocating me. My family doesn't understand me, I have had my heart broken too many times for a relationship, my friends are moving in other directions, and nobody seems to care about the future of humanity. I don't understand how so many people can look at the intolerance and greed that is so prevalent among our species and feel nothing. We are at the cusp of an age of endless possibilites and yet all I hear are all the ways we are going to destroy ourselves. I can't take it anymore. I want to just leave everything and expose myself to other cultures so that I can breathe again. I want to grow as a person and experience as much of this world as possible, but I don't know how to escape...
