Where Is Humanity?

Hello Blog World........ Sorry I left you
Without a dope script to flip through
 But the Fact is; Ive been here posted in the back. Kicked back like a lazy boy in a trailer park, sipping down a six pack of sorrow and guzzling down a jug of life. Wondering where has this world of writing been leading. I've watched people write about Kony 2012. And as admirable as it seems, I can't help to wonder where were the writers in 1986 when he came into his own rite?Where were the writers through the 1990's when he was building up the LRA. Where have they been since he was little to less talked about as he was charged for War crimes in 2005? Why wait until a unknown, unsteady half baked shell of a independent film maker post his video on YouTube to say something? Are you writing as a fad? Am I writing as a fad?

   I've been reading about a situation within my own state. Trayvon Martin; A young 17 year old kid with a hoody on, armed with a pack of skittles and an Arizona Iced Tea, and a cell phone  killed by a neighborhood watch citizen, for acts of Suspicion. When has being black with a hoody on, while walking home talking to girlfriend on phone been an act of suspicions? Why would we need public rallies from other states and cities, weeks after a heinous crime has been committed before a police chief is asked to step down for being incompetent? Why do we have to go through a weeks worth of cries for justice for an arrest?
 Well if this is the fad topic of late; then let it be that. But with these topics maybe what I'm questioning is "Where is Humanity? Where is human decency?" When will we learn to live side by side with people of different religions,cultures, beliefs,economic status,social status,sexual preference, etc. etc.

If living in fear because someone is different than you; Or you prejudge an individual because he or she stereotypically does not fit the demographic of given situation, there shall; nor ever will be any weight nor Merritt acceptable for finding resolve with violence..... Wake up World-Wake Up

Wake up with no blinders. Find these issues within yourself to help make a change. Lean about different cultures with respect rather than ridicule. Make effort to co-exist..

Better than the cliche of the word co-exist. For the future evolution of humanity, If ever are we expected to EXIST.

So as I close from my opening statement, I initially started to write, questioning where this writing thing was going. Was it going to be poetry, random nonsense, musical reviews, song lyrics. Was I going to write a book, maybe a script for movie or short film. Who knows. Maybe I'm generic as the term blogger and maybe I'll just write whats on mind. Maybe this is what I was meant to write..

  1. "Where is Humanity? Where is human decency?" When was it replaced with suspicion and consumerism? How can we today be more suspicious of people who are different than us than we were 20 years ago? Why have we failed, how have we failed in making this world safe and fair for everyone? It's not too much to ask for is it?

    PS What's on your mind is interesting....and important.

    1. Spilling Ink you are right in questioning why we have failed as a whole.. and thanks for stopping in

  2. Judgement due to difference is a terrible crime in the world of creation. It is the differences that glorifies the power and marvel of creation. Those who cannot see this live in a terrible place.

  3. Given the circumstances of several breakins in the area Zimmerman probably had reason to be suspecious and call in the police, however this over-zelous police wannabe had no right to follow and confront Trayvon and certianly had no buisness carrying a gun.

    Trayvon should be alive today and it was a travesty that it took so long to arrest Zimmerman.. Not sure he should be tried for more than manslaughter, but the facts will come out and hopefully justice will be served. Neighborhood watch should be watch, not follow and encounter.
