What’s going on

Many things have happened in the past 60 days. Some have had the spotlight on them, others have not. The media seems to only be covering events that are either a distraction from real issues or events that are meant to tear people apart and start a fight…

This past weekend, I’ve had the pleasure of meeting up with one of my friends, Frankie who currently lives in Central Arkansas. He does tree removal in Little Rock┬áduring the day and codes on the side┬áduring the night.

Yes! I meant coding on a computer!

Frank was always passionate about computers and learning how they work. After high school, he was a part time tree guy, part time computer geek. I guess he went full time doing tree work, but still keeps up with the coding world.

Our families have known each other for over a decade and have attended tons of events together. Five years later, and good ol’ Frankie is still the same!

I remember him telling me that he’ll always be interested in computers and will never give it up his dream of being one of the greats… I doubted him them, but don’t doubt him today. Sooner or later, he will be the next genius/inventor who changes the world for good and all because he works harder than anyone I know today, including myself.

We’ve had a couple of serious talks and moments, but all in all, it has been the biggest break I’ve had in the last 5 years. Frank is the kind of guy that you can have a very serious conversation with, talk about emotional stuff and even some issues you’re having in your life and simply shoot the sh*t.

Times like that is when you really get to appreciate your REAL friends. People like Frank who understand you.

Nowadays, we have too many FAKE friends, who hang out with you, laugh with you but aren’t there when you need them most. They on your side when you’re winning, but will quickly switch sides, when you’re in the loss.

I want to raise everyone’s awareness and have you check yourself… Are the people you spend you time with, there when nobody else is? Ask yourself next time you buddy Bob wants to go party…

In the world we live in today, there will definitely be bad times and you need good people on your side. It’s not easy finding FAKE friends, but is very hard finding REAL ones.

Be aware of who’s getting your time! That is all.

 

Main Issues With Society Today

If you ever watch the news anymore, even though they’re full of lies and are not not be trusted to deliver relevant, unfiltered and most importantly honest information about the thing the are happening in the world we all live in today, you’ll notice that all the so called reporters are talking about the same thing day in and day out.

Something funny that I’ve noticed is… let’s say an extremist blowing up a building, people getting shot at or a truck, operated by an insurgent ramming through a bunch of people… Whatever it is, you should know what I’m talking about, but think why you know about those events??? It could be because that’s all that the big media is talking about, otherwise how would you find out about it. What ever happened to the mass murder of people in Florida and California? The news went on for about two weeks just blasting each story and interviewing all the people who were faking a concern for the victims and stirred towards the gun control.

Now, we have a black guy shooting up the police because they’ve been beating and killing men like himself for years! What’s happening to that story though? It’s fading away after the burial of the police officers…

The next big thing is France and the attack there. Do you see what I’m talking about. It’s always a new story that’s being fed to us without the majority of people noticing, and being distracted by Pokemon Go and running around town chasing god knows what… Do you think that’s the society we wanna live in? I think not! But is it the one we’re currently a part of? Absolutely!

I’ve done some research and have identified what in my opinion are the core issues of our society today!

  • Gay and Lesbian Rights – even though some of you might be thinking that it’s over, I assure you that it’s far from the truth! Our society as a whole is still, to this day having issues with accepting gays and lesbian as a part of the community. For whatever reason it’s stuck in their head that all people aren’t created equal and if you happened to appreciate your own gender much more that the opposite you and your life matter less somehow. I’m convinced that there is a lot more to be fought, just like the case of slavery and racism. There was racism, which turned into slavery, which has then downgraded back to the good ol racism. Mic Drop!
  • Racism – Not much different from LGBT community and their fight for rights, except for the fact that one cannot simply hide their skin color. Some highly educated people suggest that it’s a person’s fault for being racist, but I completely disagree. In my most honest opinion I put this one on the parents, schools (education) and the society! It promotes racism, not as openly as back in the 50’s, yet every day you hear about some big racism issues, just like the case with cops vs black people.

The only solution I see, is education! No child should be tough to hate or disrespect one another based on skin color, sex or gender preference. All those children will grow up to be open minded individuals and will bring the country back on it’s feet.
