8 Day Random Challenge: Day 8

1 thing you want to change about the world

One thing I want to change about the world is all the violence, and intollerance.

It seems like more and more people don’t care about anything anymore, these days. They feel like they have to hurt people, to get others to listen or take notice of them.

They think that violence is the only way to solve things, when it is not. They also think that degrading/bullying/hurting people for being who they are is also ok.

When people hurt others for being who they are, they just don’t understand the impact that has on the victim(s).

If someone is hurting, and feels like they need to take it out on others, they really need to take it out in a more positive, encouraging way, instead of causing a lot of pain.

If people turn away from violence (weapons, gangs, etc.) and more towards a safer outlet, like art, or sports, or anything less violent, then the world would be a lot better place to live in.

People would be less cautious of others, they would be more willing to communicate with others, more willing to accept others into their life.

People are intollerant of others, because they just don’t know them. They don’t know who they are, what their disability is about (if they have one), their religion, and because of stereotypes that are out there, that just aren’t true.

They have probably grown up thinking that a certain religion or disability, or a certain look is bad, and that they are to look down on people with those identifications. And that is just wrong. People are people, no matter their religion, disability, race, ethnicity, or looks. Accept them for who they are, and there would be less violence in the world.
