Stand Up America - Awareness Article By S
It's a tragedy that America has turned into a selfish, sleazy country where almost everyone only cares about themselves. Crime in America is worse, people realize, as there's no controlling young people who turn to a life of crime at an early age. I have seen people I've known who've done bad things to others quite a bit but never made to pay for their crimes. Our jails are just revolving doors for these types of criminals.
Something else disturbs me that I've noticed, the negative, snobby attitude that so many Americans have adopted. Please remember there are far more important things then the objects you own, how much is in your bank account, and where you vacation at. America was made for all of us, not just the rich people. A country full of just rich people could not function.
I feel another key point I'm forced to bring up is how the government needs to create more jobs for more people. What do they assume, that America can improve it's own economy? It would seem instead that they don't care. I'm outraged at so many peoples' bad attitudes in this country in the face of our economy drop.
So those of you out there who read this, please be kind as possible to your neighbors and try to understand they have it rough, too. It is very rough out there. A friend of mine just lost his job, just before these coming holidays. He was a hard worker and they fired him on some silly technicality. I wonder, do you employers have something against hard workers? Ha, ha, ha! That is funny to me, what about you? It seems most employers are just looking for excuses to fire people. They are particularly foul firing people just before the holidays - why do they think it's neccasary to kick a person when their down? That's the problem with this country, people don't work together enough.
In the middle of all the BS about what kind of car we drive or the size of our bank account or whatever, we're all just human and life is short. We need to strive to make a difference today. You don't have to give the shirt off your back America, but some kindness in the middle of a crisis wouldn't hurt. I know not everyone behaves in this way but I have been noticing too much afoul with people when this country is going through such a trying time.
We ARE all in it together.
