Myyyy ohhh myyy......I can't believe that I haven't written in my live journal for such a long time. I think its mainly because i'm depressed. School depresses me, the world depresses me, and now a friend is moving and thats depressing too. I'm a happy person...don't get me wrong. I'm not sitting on the couch singing sappy sad songs and eating potato chips. Its just, recently I've just had it with the way our world is going. So much hatred. So much disgust. It all started when I watched the movie Passion of the Christ. Being muslim and believing in a similar story, not quite the same (especially the ending) I took the movie as a movie and not reality. But it was so depressing to see what Jesus had to go through. So much pain, and for what? For believing in something that is against the norm. How horrific is that. And all of you are thinking oh god it would suck to live back then etc. but i mean come on...is our world any better now? The things that are happening in the world is horrid, but since most of us like to live in la la lands and not really care about anyone outside America until it happens to us (aka 9-11) nobody really knows about it. I mean come on. So many people are dying. Look at the Israel Palestine conflict. Does anyone really know and understand what is happening there? You think you do, but how trustworthy is the media. Obviously the media wont be talking about us doing unjust and inhumane things, so this must mean our media is biased and racist. Take for example the Oklahoma City Bombing. Does anyone know what religion Timothy McVeigh believed in? No. No one talked about that. But when someone from the middle-east busts out and does somethign crazy, something that doesn't even represent his religion, everyone knows what religion he is. Also all the gang stuff. You know there has to be white people in gangs...but do you hear about them? Nope. The news always mentions a latino, an oriental, and they most definitely mentions an african american. What im trying to say is this: If we believe in freedom, why do we deport Haitians back to Haiti, when they are running away from the place cuz they are scared for their life, while when a cuban comes to seek refuge so he can get a job, we let them stay. Look at the palestinian israeli conflict. Why do we support israel? answer that question, but answer it without bringing up your religion and the fact that they were ordained to the place. Remember- the church and state are seperate. What caused Saddam Hussein to be an imminent threat to America rite after the war in Afghanistan. Would we have attacked him if 9-11 never happened?? I don't think so. Why? Cuz then we couldn't lie to the public, make it seem somehow that Iraq had something to do with 9-11, and go in to get oil. I mean if he was that big of a threat, why did NATO not support our decision to go in. Oh and the best part. We go in, kill and rape a whole nation, sacrafice so many American soldiers, so we can get WMDs (which were never there). I have such a big problem with people not even caring whats happening to innocent peoples lives. Whats up with the war now? Does anyone hear about the war? Nope. Does anyone care to ask why troops are still in Iraq is saddam is captured? Does anyone care to ask whats up with the WMDs? GAAAH.|
