A little part of me dies on the inside.
Losing faith in humanity, seems to happen more and more everyday. As more and more people begin to think school and education is stupid and a waste of time it's quite apparent we as a species are becoming stupider. Witnessing human stupidity is a everyday encounter with me and it isn't subsiding any time soon. Being an America is becoming an embarrassment to this point. We have a system where you can get away with murder if there is some pretty serious evidence but not enough of it. The system rewards stupidity in the fact that you can get paid to go to school, paid to be lazy and mooch off unemployment benefits, featured on television on absurd reality shows, and so on and so forth. Education keeps getting budget cuts (which should be the last thing to cut) and money is being poured into things most Americans don't even agree upon such as current marijuana laws, war on terror, patriot act stuff, public welfare. The nation is bleeding economically but Americans could give less of a damn, in times of catastrophe Americans always help out foreign nations but when it's on the homefront the only time wealth is shared is during a natural disaster. In witnessing these events take place everyday it's hard not to let a little part of me die on the inside.
