What a wonderful idea that Gene Roddenberry had about life. He decided to create a world where there was no money and the primary goal was to live in peace. Plus, there is the whole "to boldly go where no one has gone before," explore-y thing. I think that it would be quite neat to live in a place and time where you don’t have to pay for anything and we are all equal. Imagine a life without bills, free food and housing. No War. No Genocide. What is wrong with our society that there are people who truly believe that they are worth more than anyone else?
What if we lived life like that here on earth? Lived in peace? Had no need for money? I watch the news everyday and my heart breaks seeing that there is so much pain throughout this world. Right now, in southern Sudan, there will be a new country in July. These people have been living in poverty for years. On the news, they actually said a fifteen year-old girl is more likely to die from childbirth then to finish high school. Over 75% of the southern population is illiterate. This break from the North is going to liberate these people. They will need help from everyone.
We live in a free world, yet we allow the government to make so many tiny decisions. For example; exactly why do I, as a grown adult, have to wear a helmet when I am riding a bicycle? Surely I can understand why I have to wear a seat belt, but the helmet on a bike...I don’t understand. I could complain about the government, but that may take a while. Plus, I do not have this website to ramble on about the negative. I want to talk about happy things. Good things.
So here it is. We may still have bills to pay, but we have love. We may have to abide by laws, but we still have freedoms. We are a free-thinking society. We are allowed to voice our opinions. I, as a woman, am allowed to be a woman, a human being, who has opinions, thoughts, and love. I am not ridiculed, beaten, burned for being a woman. I am allowed to love. I am allowed to walk freely. I am not forced into marriage, raped, or victimized because I am thought to be less than human. We truly have been blessed. We are fortunate. We should look around and be thankful for what we have every day.
“I am woman, hear me roar”
So, yes, resistance is futile, and I am going to invade you thoughts, with a balance of happy, sad and reality.
Happy Does It!
