This is my first major life post and I would love it if you could give it a read! I've been away for a while, but hear me out! I have just got a new job, I have been traveling around my region to radios and other media businesses as well as taking part in a writing course, so busy busy! But, I am starting a project called Human17.
If I pose a question, and ask you, what does being Human mean to you in 2016, what would you say? This year there have been so many frights and disturbances the world over to say the least. At a time when we should be more connected than ever, it feels almost like we aren't. People today feel too scared to voice their opinion with fear that someone will disagree. You can't like a particular music or like who you want to like. If you ask the question of; Do you like Sex to a group of 100 friends, would they all answer yes, even if they dont? Probably, but only because today we worry what people will say, as we are socialized to think we have to like it! People will judge our opinions all the time but what does that matter.
We are all human we should all be equal we should all have equal opportunities, you should be how you want the world to be! We all deserve this world and we need to work together to keep surely?
We are closer to the end of the world than we ever have been and we get closer and closer day by day. This is our world and we need to look after it. Animals are becoming extinct, and I myself are worried that my child may never know what an elephant looked like without a photo. That is a scary thought, and singularly we might not be able to do much about it. War spreads through the world along with disease and hatred. But turn your head for once and turn away from that form of media and that world and look at the good.
Small things like a video of a dog dancing, or a rhino impersonating a goat (yes that is a real thing!) A dog sliding down a slide, or even just a look at Disney film, a complete look away from our normal world, and into this escapism.
I hope to form a project via YouTube and my blog that spreads awareness of what it is like to be human in the year 2016 and 2017. How we can do small deeds to make the world a better place, within reason. I dont want to sound arrogant or vein, but by giving a few pennies to a homeless guy can still make a difference! I hope to hear from some of you guys and I hope to make a YouTube video to start this idea off.
You will never hear me plea for a share or a like or anything like that! You can like a post or a video without clicking a button so whats it matter! But for one time, please take two seconds to share this? Maybe? Or just comment and tell me what you feel being human means in 2016?
