I'm worried about the direction of this nation. I see a general lack of understanding about where we wish to see this world go. We lack vision and purpose; our motivational input as the next generation to have power is appalling. We are more concerned about the escapades of 72 day marriages between Kim Kardashian and her men than we are about the foreign policy of the United States, the economic debacle we face at home, and the heated rhetoric of the would-be Republican presidential candidates. We must regain our senses and take notice of whats happening. Not only will we inherit the positions of power to make change but we will inherit the horrible outcomes of decisions we have not made long before those avenues of power and change have become open to us. So we must wage a fight not only for the voice of power we so desperately need, but for the very soul of a nation. For what we risk losing is far greater than any evil that could be wrenched from the bowels of hell. My brothers and sisters of the world, we are losing our very souls to greed, corruption, hate, and misunderstanding. We are allowing ourselves to be wrapped up in fantasy lives as the real world seeps through our finger tips. And for what? For a fast dollar, the image of lasting fame? Rise up and heed what your heart tells you. That you are a creature of might and power, that within you lies the ability to change not only yourself but the world around you. Don't lose your soul and your voice in one day. It will take forever to regain it. If at all.
