Flash Blog: Cinder Blocks for Adults By: Eric Blair

Flash Blog: Cinder Blocks for Adults By: Eric Blair

What’s going on in the headlines today? Well, in Philadelphia children under eighteen have a curfew because of flash riots. The mortgage crisis in United States is still a major problem but financial institutions are fine. There are 13.9 million unemployed U.S. citizens today. London is burning because of Police brutality against a young man and a community fights back with a riot. There are still troops in Afghanistan dying; we’re still fighting a war with a fractured economy. The Polar Ice Cap is almost gone from Global Warming. The Stock Market is playing ping pong with investments. School budgets are being cut but war budgets continue to grow. There is a famine crisis in Somalia, Africa. I wake up every morning to be presented with these bleak highlights and too many people turn a blind eye to what’s really happening in the world only to praise these idiotic Hollywood stars. I do not give a f**k about Kim Kardashian’s wedding when I am worried about affording groceries. Too many people give these stars too much power when there are greater and dire issues in this world. You’re a nimrod if you didn’t know there is a famine going on in Africa but you would watch two homosexual men gossip like two barnyard hens on Youtube about Rihanna. Why should you care about Rihanna, Angelina Jolie, Jay-Z, or Tom Cruise? They’re not starving. All four of those celebrities gross income can fund thirty percent of the war in Afghanistan. Why would I praise these people like they’re Gods or care about their life when children have no bed to sleep in? I don’t care about people “twitting” about nonsense. It enrages me to see people taking intellectuals for granted and ignorance is fashionable. This world is becoming extremely backwards, we can protest our government because we are the government. Instead of standing up and shouting, so many people just shrug it off since it’s not affecting them directly. People are dying everyday for their beliefs, during warfare, and hunger; how can anyone just shrug that off? How can so many people live so carelessly and still buy two hundred dollar shirts when jobs aren’t secure anymore? Each new day is scarier than the next. I realized life was turned upside down when Osama Bin Laden was killed and the world rejoiced as if it was a holiday. This one man’s death didn’t change a thing; the world is darker than ever. Each day I open my eyes I question God, why? Where are you, God? People are becoming savages all over again. It’s the stone age but with “twits” and nukes. Men are shooting up buses with AK-47s, children are running rampant through a city, and our government is more militant than a helping hand. Where is the dawn when there is so much darkness surrounding us? Thinking about our world in crisis makes my eyes tear up. I do not care about celebrities or obtuse trends, I care about humanity because I am a Humanist; I want us to survive. How can we survive when no one trusts one another and only care about themselves? How can we build a new world when we’re using cider blocks to build a wall around ourselves?
