#oregonunderattack seems to be trending on TWITTER right now accompanied with this picture.
It kind of got me thinking how even in this day and age just how bad some people really are. I know and understand what this represents, but then started thinking of all other historical wars where lives have been lost and land has been stolen.
I then began to wonder, ” Hold on… I was only born in 1976. Why the bloody Hell do people dig up things from centuries or even millennia ago, to make the people of today look so bad. I agree our ancestors did some evil things but how dare you lay the blame at my feet this day when I wasn’t even born and neither was you…”
History is important, but what matters to us today is the here and now which we are living in. We have such opportunities to make the world a better place. From simply planting a few trees to bring oxygen to the world and homes to wildlife…to raising money to people less fortunate than ourselves.
It’s 2016! We have made it together this far. You and me and everybody else. Dreadful things are still happening today. Let’s focus on stopping them rather than blaming everyone alive today for things that happened centuries before they was even born. Let’s use our intelligence for once in our fucking history and work together as a planet!!
