“Your car is Japanese. Your Vodka is Russian. Your pizza is Italian. Your kebab is Turkish. Your democracy is Greek. Your coffee is Brazilian. Your movies are American. Your Beers are German. Your shirt is Indian. Your oil is Saudi Arabian. Your electronics are Chinese. Your numbers -Arabic, your letters -Latin. And you complain that your neighbor is an immigrant? Against racism.”
Most people want to be a hero like superman, the person who’s looked up to by all and gets praised for doing good things for everybody, with only one thing as their weakness and naturally is driven to do good. This of course can’t happen cause I’m human and I’m flawed, so I want to become an Anti-Hero. The Anti-Hero is like the hero but is more real, with flaws and weaknesses but the will to keep fighting for whats right even when they make mistakes.
I know I’ve made my mistakes and I’ve messed up a lot, especially when my emotions get in the way of thinking up a careful plan. No matter what I keep moving on to either make things better or to change it all again. Two things I learned this year that have become important lessons are to not give up even if the odds are tough and to never believe that there is nothing I can do about it when things aren’t in my favor. I do it for myself and for those I love. I don’t aim to please everybody, only to impress the people that matter to me.
It’s a tough fight to make things better and no one ever says it’s easy but in the end it’s easy to see the fight was worth it.
I just saw a documentary “The Devil Came of Horseback” and it was about genocide. I noticed a pattern in it that I’ve seen in other things like this. I choose to believe in philosophy, to be open minded, and to blame myself for everything; because the thing I noticed was that there is always prejudice, ignorance, and one side not blaming taking responsibility. I for one don’t want to live that way.
