I want to be more than angry

March 22, 2012 · 7 comments

Note: I posted this somewhere else today, but I thought I should share this here. 
I want my anger to mean something. I want my anger to be put to use. I don’t want to only be angry. I want change. Being angry for the sake of being angry accomplishes nothing.
I want people to stop shooting innocent kids.
I want people to stop imposing their religious beliefs on people via politics.
I want people to stop putting their foot on poor people’s necks and telling them to pull themselves up by their bootstraps.
I want people to stop rewarding companies and ignoring the needs of people.
I want people to stop thinking that because they don’t get everything they want, that the system is broken.
I want people to stop taking down the whole country for political gain.
I want people to stop believing that compromise is a dirty word.
I want people to stop blaming the victim as a first response.

I want people to see that no matter what system we have in place it’s not going to be perfect for everyone all of the time. Compromise is the key word like you said.
