"Because in Cyberspace, no one can hear you scream."
Saturday, August 28, 2004
I have come to realize that I miss many of my friends at Teen Mania. I miss our in depth conversations about God, politics, our future plans and how we were not going to let our lives count for nothing, but actually get involved in society and do something about our current status as a nation.
I am not going to make this another political Blogger--at least not now. I have seen many sites ranting and raving about who they love and hate (Bush or Kerry) and quite frankly I am getting tired of it. I am glad that people (even younger ones) are passionate about politics. They should be. Politicians affect their world and only a fool would refuse to open up their eyes to what is going on.
But what I think what we need to focus on is helping our neighbors get ahead and serving the community. Getting caught up in great causes are great (and we should be apart of something bigger than ourselves) but if that is all we do than we are like clouds without rain, venting our enormous power and strength but refusing to help the "fields" of humanity beneath us. Isn't that our original purpose, to give out a helping hand towards humanity?
If anyone is interested, if anyone out there cares, I would encourage you to check out Activist Chat who are trying to bring about more awareness to the Iranian cause (click here). I would encourage you to not just simply "join" the association, but simply find these Iranians on Blogger and encourage them as they try to deal with their political environment (which is full of restraints). That is all I have to say for now, and if anyone out there is still curious as to where I stand, all you have to do is simply check my affiliations section. Selah!
