How do we change the world Today? Our Voices day 11

How do we change the world?
Do we tell little children to go outside and play rather then play video games all day and night
Do we teach them how to read and write and do arithmetic
Do we tell young woman to dress much more appropriately
To respect themselves more then men do and young teenagers reaching puberty
Do we tell men they need to go get a job even though jobs aren't there to be gotten
Let the landlords know that they're raising rent each year and it need to stop
Do we suggest to the government not to tax us on the income that we're not receiving
Do we put a stop to abortion clinics or open more of them for the sake of slowing down the population growth and bursts

Do we look into each others eyes as if we truly care for the likes of one another
Do we pick up a telephone to call our family members as if we truly care for them
Do we get off of the internet, from behind televisions, quit our dead end jobs and begin to appear to care for our loved ones again
Do we return to nature from which we came because its our last hope to save humanity

Do we tell the religious fanatics to quit acting self righteous and tto get a job as well even though they believe their jobs are just to correct us all
Do we rethink our strategic battle plans on social life forms and begin aiming more at the love factors rather then increasing hatred amongst differing ethnic groups

What shall it be folks, how do we change what took centuries to build
These technological walls of difficulties minute drop zones of false communications and a total disregard for all that is pure in a natural form
What shall it take to show humanity that us creatures truly mean business
We are tired of slavery
We are done with abuse
& we are simply looking for a fair piece of the pie

is it today, tomorrow, next year, or in 100 years from now after all of our body parts have already been replaced by cyber chips and electronic gadgets and there is no lovers to love, no people to care for, no animals to eat any more because its all been turned into artificial parts that our plastic stomachs can only consume intravenously through cyber connections

What will it be?

      @Cantuhearmescream, LOL yeah I agree with you on all fronts, but on the terminator movie it will surely be behind these machine where I fight my battle, and as a technician to re-engineer the android who will be doing all the fighting :)

      Hey Mike, I think using the question style poetic technique was a good choice; you're almost demanding people to stop and think about their answer, but you did it in a very non-offensive way, of course. I love that you put it to video to because it makes you and your words more real.

      Well, getting people to care is half the battle, getting them to do something about it is the other. I don't have the nerves to live through a real life terminator movie... lol.

      @Cantuhearmescream, Thank you so much for dropping that awesome comment up there, for sharing and for helping me with the heads up about my G+ link, that was super cool of you to do for little ole me. I'm just wishing for a miracle, but now using question style poetic techniques to get folks thinking, lets hope the world gets the message someday.

      I know everyone at least the 99% of us in dire straights today can relate, and as for us all turning into robot, yeah I'll be fighting that battle as well in the future if it ever happens as they did in the terminator movie :)

      @BlossomSB, yes indeed it is just that simple to spread more love and in every direction, I believe it is possible using this digital realm for sure. We shall see, thanks for sharing and showing that you care too with your awesome comment.

      @always exploring, yes there are so many more to ask, I will do a bunch more poems like this about differing subjects in life. Thanks for the cool comment and for sharing.

      @NDEvans, I cannot tell a lie I guess :) calling things as they are today is the way to help us all for sure, we need to remedy it all though and act appropriately to fix our planet as well. Thank you for participating here and for the cool comment.

      @ImKarn23, yes indeed the world as a whole needs changing, and with all of Our Voices combined it shall come to pass. Us humans need a fair shot at this survival thing and I'm willing to bet my life on the fact that is we all begin to unite under the same poetic cause, humanity will begin to notice and worldwide.

      Thanks for the visit, for the awesome words of encouragement, this thing shouldn't be that complicated neither, there's so much love everywhere, we simply need to stop hating and keep spreading it more and more. This is my truest premise, and the reason why I write today!

      Oh and thanks for the sweet compliments on my appearance :) that was too kind of you to say, Leslie. Thanks a billion!

      Great question, great topic, Mike!... very challenging. If I were to answer, it's hard to change the world now, but instilling love into the hearts of many and the young, can make it evolve better for everyone. I'm voting up interesting! Thank you :=)

      I love this, this is perfect! I so love that you put it to video too!

      You spoke of so many things that I think about day to day, the things that tear at my heart and create feelings of despair.

      It's simple, we should all learn to love, appreciate and respect one another and I don't mean by holding hands and signing Kumbayah, but just a common love for the idea that each person is human, respect their ways and appreciate their triumphs and tragedies.

      So long as we allow technology to overtake our lives and replace real, raw and honest human connections, there will never be hope. As technology improves, I fear we are turning into robots ourselves and so many are running with the crowd and they're doing it smiling!

      Up and all kinds of stuff! Sharing too!

      So true - there are many things that would make the world a better place if we all did just one little thing towards making it happen.

      @Vickiw, thank you for the cool comment many of these hot items are from many walks of life as well and I'm sure these feelings are mutual on most parts of the globe in terms of the state of humanity as a whole.

      Hi Mike, very deep thoughts, and concerned thoughts too, about your views on society, which would probably be shared by many.

      LOL, yes indeed we need to activate all of our dreams for a much better world to come to reality, I concur my good friend.
