"see and do the obvious"
...What could possibly be worse than that 12-letter word in this tight spot that we are now living in.
Let's face it, we are living in a world filled with so much chaos and greediness. People are going banana's over oil, pleasure, and fame. (I know, these are really random words... I'm a random person) Some of us are spilling coffee/chocolate milkshakes when the taste is not suited for our liking while a group of 5 children in some corner of our planet would run 10 miles just to get a sip of the browny goodness. (Sounds wrong... I know)
I, personally, am admitting that I do have my greedy moments... specially when I'm driving home from school and a bunch of street children knock on my window for a chance of getting some spare change. I honestly feel sad whenever I see their faces all caught up with the dust and smoke from the urban jungle plus the scorching heat of the sun. Every knock on my window sends a sense of irritation in me for two reasons:
1.) I just cleaned my car... and I dont have spare change... so go away... You're making me concsious.
2.) You don't deserve this kind of living... I just hope I can do something... I'm sorry.
I know a lot of people who take their "riches" for granted. They buy so much products and luxury items while "the obvious" is standing right infront of them. I consider myself to be part of the "a lot of people" I mentioned earlier because I always stay in this shell of mine as much as I can. I hope you don't judge me or anything because there is a reason why I'm making a blog post right now.
Most of us neglect the fact that people are starving (to death) and are crying for help while no one answers. People who actually give a damn about a fallen Oreo Cookie while some laugh at it and impose the "5 second rule" on it. (You know... when some food falls on the ground.. you have 5 seconds to eat it or else it wouldn't be edible anymore because of dirt) It's really pretty obvious that all of us know the situation some people face and we're all like "well... too bad for em... now let me take a sip on this Starbucks Mocha Frap".
Indifference.... break it....
Don't just look... Go IN and experience what they always wanted to say to you. And make a big DIFFERENCE while you're at it.
Just imagine our world if every rich family wouldn't buy an Audi TT but would set it aside to give a family a month's supply of food and drink. I'm not bashing people who have Audi's... But I hope you can see this objectively... People walk barefoot for miles just to go to school... People dive in seas of garbage to get plastic and sell them... And yes, People eat your leftovers and you don't even know it.
What would you rather have... a car that needs constant gasoline to run... or smiles from a family that couldn't have been healthier if it wasn't for you...
I'm just a student and I haven't even graduated yet to help and reach out. My school provides the reaching out thing but of course, we have some grade requirement to achieve in order to pass the course.... so we take it for granted... But it also helped my eyes open wide and hug the people in depressed areas....
I hope most will take the big leap....
.... to see and do the obvious.
