The world just seems to be burning around us and all we can do is watch. Systemic racism, media corruption, social media toxicity, and many more are just fuels to the flames… but we seem to do nothing about them, and continue to go about our days without many change. Just like the burned newspapers… the stories are written, we see what’s going on, yet we still watch it burn, burn until there’s no trace of it left. The more I’m online and hear stuff on the news, the more I realize how much the media is dividing us as people. It just seems that all people want to do is argue about their opinions and about what THEY believe is right, and at this point, I’m not really sure what “doing the right thing” is anymore. Differing opinions are what makes us human, but people just never seem or even try to have genuine empathy towards others. Never being able to put themselves in other’s shoes and being stuck within their own little bubble. Why can’t we just come together as PEOPLE, without any labels, to solve a common problem that we as a society all face TOGETHER. I don’t want to post controversial stuff, and honestly, I want to continue to stay as unproblematic as possible, spreading positivity and happiness through my content. But this has been something that’s been bugging me for the longest. What’s the point in having a large following if I’m not going to do anything about it. This is my way of using my art and small platform to try to bring awareness towards a problem I feel strongly about. So the question is… What’s the right thing to do? Watch it all burn? Or be the change and write a new story?
