Patriotism is defined as the quality of being patriotic, vigorous support of one’s country.
Patriotism has become a popular topic recently or at least in the American culture, it is. A lot of the older generations are used to people standing with one arm across the chest and having head wear off during the Pledge of Allegiance and/or National Anthem.
But in recent times, people have been sitting out, kneeling, burning the national flag, making unpatriotic remarks, and so on and so forth.
But, some questions remains..
- What makes someone against/for something in their country?
- What might make someone not like/like the country they are currently in?
- What is the backstory behind all these patriotic/unpatriotic things?
- What constitutes as patriotic/unpatriotic in one’s country?
Have you ever wondered what an original thought actually is?
At this day of age, it seems as though a lot of the things that we say have to say or do is related to some sort of past or current popular culture. Popular culture is things that we all can relate to like popular phrases, proverbs, movies, tv shows, books, news, journals, songs, podcasts, radio, and other outlets.
It may be hard to come up with something without the referencing something from popular culture. But, the challenge is how well to challenge your thought process to think how original you original process is.
There is a game out there that my friends and I played during some free time between classes at college. We would have a conversation even though that some of it would be a random sketch that we would have to come up with something quite hilarious.
- gather around a few people, family, friends, classmates, or acquaintances.
- come with a topic or an improvised conversation
- try to see how long you can last in the conversation without referencing anything from popular phrases, proverbs, movies, tv shows, books, journals, news, songs, podcasts, radio, and other outlets.
- first person to reference something from any outlet listed in the bullet above will have to back out of the conversation until the last person stands
- last person standing has the most original thoughts
- after the round you may start over again.
There are many things that go on in the world. Lots of negativity and things that we don’t think about what people or societies various cultures are going through.
It seems mental health has becoming more popular topic recently and awareness’s have been coming into the spotlight. Mental health is important for everyone and shouldn’t be taken lightly. At some point, we will have an off day and that’s fine. But, what if it goes on for long periods of time and doesn’t seem to go away? Well, then, that’s when people should take care of themselves and people should start to care about those around them. People react in all shapes and forms. Some may act like their typical selves with slight change but maybe hard to pick up on their clues while others may start to withdraw, personality/attitude changes, start bodily harm, and etc. It’s sad to see someone go through negativity. How does one help those around those who are going through negativities. A couple examples on how to help those around you can always to talk to them about what is bothering them, do some favorite things with them, and/or help provide or find support system for them, if need be.
Another thing is that times are changing and during that change, so will the people. Yea, life happens with everyone and sometimes we lose track of people and things around us which can be a blend of mixed feelings. But, it is important to always check up on people, family, long-time friends and acquaintances, and other people that may have an impact on your life.
It’s never a good thing to leave none behind. If a person is left behind then it may lead to a mystery on how that person changed and what got them to the point to where they are at. It could make them feel isolated and/or alienated from those around them and confused to get back into their previous life that they are used to. So, don’t leave anyone behind and accept and be around them to make their lives better.
Remember to love and care about those around you.
So, for those who are following me, I’ve been gone for almost a month since the last post.
There have been some things going on. One of those things is content. Figuring out what content to bring forth is hard. I do have a lot of content in mind to do and probably should’ve posted sooner. Another things is that life is life and you have to live life and what it tosses at you which could be either good or bad.
So if you want to hear more about us let us know down in the comments below.
There are many things in this world that cannot be explained or yet explored. Yet, the sciences and math probabilities are able to explain some of the things going on but not all. Could it explain what is in the deepest depths of the ocean, what about the strange space, earth, and human anomalies, why we can't explain cold cases or missing person cases that are never reopened, what happens when something or someone goes through a black hole in space (hypothetically speaking), and etc? There's so many questions left to be answered.
It's an exploration race of knowledge beyond our capabilities which we are slowly learning more about and who knows what point of time it will take us to get there. It seems like there are a lot of dark subjects that haven't been shown the light of day and dedication to be worked into so we know the Earth and Space more and what we are capable of. It seems like there maybe a lot of curious minded people who are wondering about what the future holds and the mysteries and tales of the past, present and future.
What will the future hold? Will we discover what lies in the parts unknown and the tales of our own planet?
Some of you remember one of the blogs posted not too long ago explaining why we're only human and all lives matter. This is similar and if listened to we can all live in a better society. We can all live to dream that this will come true. So, beyond this paragraph you can decide if you want to read further.
When looking at multiple news outlets, there are those standing up for equality for rights and fair treatment. There are still a lot of maltreatments and corruption going on out there in the world. But, how far is enough or too much? Well, that's a million dollar question, we may never actually know.
We should spread care, love and kindness to all. We should not hate, corrupt, and evil from the world. We're all human, there's no sub-humans. Yes, we're all different colors, have different religions, culture, sexual orientations, political ideas, and etc but that doesn't make us (humans) any less than one another. History happened so we would not hope to be repeated in future history.
Would there ever be a time when there is going to be a time of peace and no violence?
I ask you for simple thing.
Will you love the people around you? Will you help stop the stigmas and violence going on in the world? Can you help the world become equal for all those who reside in the world?
Remember to love one another and be kind to your neighbor.
When you tell someone no it should mean no. You can tell anybody no or turn down any situation. No should mean no not yes. Yes should mean yes not no. Why can't people comprehend that?
It does not mean that the person has that some sort of unspoken permission in doing something that is not needed or against the other person's will.
For example, if a man is trying to get lucky and is not taking no for answer. So, he picks a random girl that may be willing to give some time to give to the desperate guy but she decides things are not exactly normal about this guy and a lot of red flags are up and waving around. She tells him no numerous times and he isn't taking no for an answer. She leaves the location and he follows her and decides that she "deserves it" and rapes her. He says she "deserves it" because of her outfit. She didn't "deserve it" because she clearly told him no and her outfit was not skimpy and was covering the majority of her skin, she wasn't acting desperate as he was, and was not being flirty or that interested in the people hitting on her. Was she a victim in this case? Yes, she was, she never asked for this to happen for her. The guy got away after he was finished with his task.
This is probably a bad example but was trying to make a point
This also can go along with so many other situations as well. If a person doesn't feel comfortable with a situation or being around a person or group of people. It is OK to say NO. Just follow your intuition and instinct or that gut feeling. You are the one who is in control of your own life. Things will fall into place and you will find your true self and figure out who your true friends are.
Remember to love one another and treat others the way you want to be treated.
Remember if you don't feel comfortable with a person or situation. Do what feels right and say no or leave.
