It’s Good To Rock
In the wake of yesterday’s tragedy, I feel a sense of responsibility to say something on the matter.
Ladies and gentleman, I implore you not to try to make sense of this senseless act. Rational words will never fully justify irrational behaviour. We can debate terrorism. We can debate religion, gun control, and mental illness. Or we can beat a dead horse until it starts talking.
Broadening our understanding of the insidious aspects of life will not stop these things from happening. Our world will never be perfect. Stricter gun law will not end these tragedies. Nor will declaring war on terrorism. You can’t blame religion for this. Even when people buy whatever it is you’re trying to sell, there will be the people who oppose it. There will always be conflict.
There is no solution to the problem. Life just fucking sucks sometimes. But it is life after all, and it has to AND WILL go on. Every single one of us have a responsibility and the power to employ an active role in perpetuating good.
Give the ones you love a hug. Play the music that pleases your ears and makes you happy. Take a chance and let someone know how you’re feeling about them. Be the absolute best person you can be, taking as few casualties as possible.
Most of all, accept that life is going to be a little fucked up sometimes, but further accept it can also be very beautiful. I don’t have solutions. But I do have thoughts on the matter. And these are it.
There is no scholastic perspective. Just my feelings. Whether they are valid or not, there are at least 15,165 people who are paying attention. I implore you people to love hard. Love will always be a more powerful force than hate. Be a creator, not a destroyer. When you fall on the street, don’t be the person who thinks someone is going to run you over. Be the person who knows someone is going to help you up.
It’s not a cliche. The laws of attraction exist. You get what you put out.
I love you all, and thank you for making my life a worthwhile endeavour.
