I've always been envious of those who had the ability to draw. To make the ideas in their head into something tangible that we can all see and touch. Maybe that's why we all love music so much. You can feel it take over your mind and body as soon as it enters your ears. Writing and photography is the art that I guess you could say I contribute with the world with. I think we all have some kind of art or talent. Some might just be harder to bring out than others. I think as humans we are all capable of creating something amazing despite how the news channels go on about how bad things are. America's Got Talent never ceases to amaze me. The things that people are capable of doing when they really set their mind to it is absolutely amazing.
I recently watched a video talking about the Fukishima disaster. It talked about how the nuclear reactor has not been contained and is in fact impossible to at this point. That scared me, but what scares me the most is the fact that our news does not broadcast any information about it. The news is now a tool of big corporations to make time population see what they want to see. Ariana Grande licking a donut and not paying for it is what displays on our tv's and I can't help but wonder what they are distracting us from.
I want to contribute to making the world a better place rather than contributing to the chaos that happens around us constantly. Sometimes I feel depressed when I start to think about much we just let happen to the world. How much we're destroying, while the younger generations are trapped in tiny glowing screens distracted by how terrifying the world actually can be. In a way I'm envious of them. They play Minecraft and build their own world while the one around them begins to collapse. It's tradgeically beautiful.
Most people want money. I want create something that betters the world. That's the difference between most people and me. Greed consumes our world. But if I can create something that betters the world and someone can consider It "art", I would die happy. There's so much negativity around us, but I can't help but dream of a day when there isn't. I can't help but hope I can contribute something that betters the world because frankly it seems like any good action at this point in time would.
