Six billion backs against the wall
I saw this picture on Facebook today. The picture in itself is disturbing, but not as disturbing as the text below it. “Hit "Like" If You Would Help Him ♥ :'(“. And then he wants people to subscribe for his account? Wow guys! Bravo, I really clap my hands and take my hat off for you. What would the world be without your thoughts and pity, eh? I tell you what; the world would probably be a hell of a better place if people actually gave a shit about making a difference. What’s up with these people? If you really would like to help this child you wouldn’t just post it on Facebook and do sad faces. You would actually try to fight for a change in this sad miserable world of ours.
I feel that a lot of people just post things on Facebook as a cry for attention. It really saddens me. “Look at me, I feel so sorry about poor people in Africa, but I couldn’t give a flying f*** about actually doing anything about the situation. Nope, I better just sit on my fat ass and wait for someone else to take action. But I’m going to hit the ‘like’ button so I can feel proud of my contribution. WAIT! OMG! Mike and Alison have gotten into a relationship? Oh, I hate that bitch! But I better comment something nice on this update so nobody thinks anything bad of me”. Am I too cynical perhaps? I believe I’m just being realistic.
Everyone: Nobody buys your Facebook bull****. If you really want to help, then go out and make a change in this world. Be the change. Do SOMETHING! You can’t rely on someone else to take action. If we don’t do this – nobody else will.
You are probably asking what the hell I’m doing that is so great comparing to you. Don’t even bother asking me what I’m doing to make a change, because this post would turn into an autobiography. Comparing to all the other attention seekers on Facebook I would look like friggin’ Mother Theresa or Mahatma Ghandi. Now, those are pretty big names! Holy names! I don’t mean to make you feel small or pathetic. I just want you to realize that you also can make a change, a real change!
