Hello world!

Welcome to WordPress.com. This is your first post. Edit or delete it and start blogging!

Okay, this is my first attempt at blogging.
This is something that I’ve never contemplated doing ever.
So why am I doing it now?
Good question!
Well, as my title says. “I’m not mad as hell, but I’m still not just going to sit here any more and not at least say something.
There are so many things in this world that need changing, and using that and saying your overwhelmed and or complacency is not going to cut it any more. There are so many people in this world and through Myspace, Facebook and Twitter we have the ability to network like never before. I know it works. My Myspace got deleted sometime last year, so it’s going to take me some time to get it back to where it was. But I had so many diverse friends that if anything needed to be done, i.e. if there was a concert for a charity, I just posted about it and by the end of the week, I had enough people contacting the lead person for that event, bands, artists etc.
If everyone diversified their friends and linked their sites so they all worked together, and we all worked together and believed that we can indeed make a change. We can and will do something awe inspiring here.
I’m not mad as hell, fore being mad will never change anything. Only cool heads and focused thought will. Anger will only change things short term. Like war. It makes an impact now, but after the war is over and the reflection of what happened makes the change. Like Iran,Iraq and Afghanistan, nothing is being learned now that wasn’t already known. War sucks, people die needlessly. After the war, it depends on the people. Some nations never learn. But the ones that stop and reflect, like Japan did. Talk about turning things around. They could have been bitter after they had an atomic bomb dropped on them. Not saying they may not have been bitter. But cooler heads prevailed and when they learned that war wasn’t the way to bring about change. They slowly became a world powerhouse.
The U.S. haven’t lost to many wars. I hope we can still learn from that. It’s a delicate balance to walk. War is not the answer, but to be able to let the ones that wish to kick sand in our faces, that if you only kick sand, call us bad names, we will turn the other cheek. But if you senselessly take an American life, retribution will be more than proportional!
However, peace seems to be a harder lesson to learn. We write songs and have bumper stickers quoting John Lennon, “Give Peace a Chance”, yet it last line of defense. We try peace when we have no other choice, which means we haven’t really given it a chance. I’m relatively young, but I wasn’t born yesterday, but I have never seen peace. There hasn’t been a moment in my life, that an American wasn’t dying for what I’m sure was thought a good cause at the time. But that American, scratch that, (Human being) died and there is never a good reason.
The land is all dispersed amongst the nations, the next logical step should be how to live together, healthy and in pursuit of happiness.
American’s seem to like a challenge, so I have one. I challenge us to do what it takes to learn from our mistakes that war doesn’t work and to try with just one generation to not know war. I know world peace will not happen in my lifetime, but we do like to lead by example. That’s an example I can be proud of. Let’s give peace a chance………………
