Kaylee: I think people are normalizing unormal things in relationships now a days and it’s so sick.

I’m very disturbed on the state of the world today.. I think there’s so much insensitivity going on. The fight for racial justice is never ending, black people deserve that, it’s the LEAST they deserve as I feel they are the foundation. People treat them violently, they lack representation, they are SILENCED. Relationships in today’s world are messy, careless, I think people are normalizing unormal things in relationships now a days and it’s so sick. Crime in America and the system is fucked completely. Racist, close minded, contradictory in its own laws.. I hate it. I hate what America is, and what it’s going to become if change doesn’t happen. The lgbtq+ also deserve so so much better, the lack of representation they get as well, it’s so disturbing to experience such a immoral, cruel world around you. But what you can do, is okay your part in making change. Don’t lose hope. We need it, desperately.

Isabella: we’re not suppose to go ‘back’ we’re suppose to go forward and adapt.

I feel like people really think, Covid is over. They think it’s a cure (the vaccine) People are being selfish, People think everything will go back to normal back to the way it was, but we’re not suppose to go ‘back’ we’re suppose to go forward and adapt. When the Black Plague happens it was all from horrible hygiene but what happens the years after that they evolved better hygiene more hand wash more antiseptic and all right That’s what we’re suppose to do ‘evolve’ and better ourselves and our safety and health but people want things to go back to ‘normal’.

Loïs Hooijer: Try not to give up, even if it is difficult

A lot has happened during this time. Covid-19, black/asian lives matter, Our favorite people dying. And of course there was a lot of pain. Let alone, we humans have lost 3.69 million people to covid-19. We try to get through it, of course, but it’s quite difficult. The feeling you get when you lose someone, it just goes on and on. These 2 years were very difficult for me. Friendships that ended, Quarrels that just kept going. Friends their health that only went down. We all have lost so many idols too. People we looked up to, just gone. Of course you hope it stops, only it keeps going. The crime, losing people, failing over and over again. It won’t go away, you just have to fight for it. You must go on anyway. Try not to give up, even if it is difficult. Always try to follow your dreams.

Felix Garwandoe: Everyone is trying to “come together” but then create different factions with in the groups of people theyre trying to come together with.

I feel like people have lost the meaning of the word community and everyone is just becoming ever colder to their fellow man. Everyone is trying to “come together” but then create different factions with in the groups of people theyre trying to come together with. Example being the BLM movement, and then the BTLM movement black trans lives matter. It makes sense but youre also isolating yourself again. Crime is crime and the labels of black on black and so on a re bullshit theres no such thing crime is the act no matter the race or creed of the offender. Its all just a farse. Relationships have become an onject rather than an adventure into love like they used to be. If its not goals then for some reason it doesnt work. People are trying to base their lives off of these people of fiction they find online and destroying their own minds with how life should be instead of enjoying it. Which is why its so hard to find real people anymore and why everyone feels so damn alone. Theres an abundance of information, sorry an overload actually that is desensitising everyone from anything that goes on around them. And all of the successful fear mongering the government has done will soon break more people down. Covid and lockdowns good god. I am only now just mentally recovering but there were times i wanted the easy out because i was tired of the world. But it really showed me who cared and who was really a friend and who was just an associate. The lockdowns were super un necessary in the uk and now they’re stepping on their own toes every damn day with the shit they spew out in the news. And I’m betting they will never be honest about the number of suicides the lockdown caused. It killed people. It was bound to. And im not talking about covid. Which was just a hefty flu. Untill people understand how to connect again i feel we will forever be moving away from the solutions we seek. Even i’ve become cold over time but ill never forget how to love or how to make people smile. Known or unknown. The more people that i can meet around the globe on my travels and interact with the better, because i know my energy lingers and for a brief moment people remember how life used to be. Learning new people. Understanding different views. And just enjoying life. People need to let go of their fear and look out the window. The world isn’t as big as they think and until they take that step they’ll forever live in the orisons they unknowingly create for themselves.

Brian: We need to keep pushing for change until we all can live equal no matter who we are.

I think majority of people are good at heart. We are in a time where hatred is extremely more powerful than peace. We’ve been at war as human beings for as long as we can remember and yet somehow in 2021 we are still fighting each other. Whether it be over land, religion, race, anything you can think of, we have fought and taken many lives because of it.

I feel there is a lack of education and awareness to what is going on around us such as racism, inequality, and social injustices. Even other problems like pollution and endangered species are not spoken about as much as they should be. We push all this news to the side to focus on (in my opinion) less important problems such as athletes and celebrities.

We will shine light on a problem for a certain amount of time and almost forget about it. Recently people have been more vocal, and haven’t slowed down, about the George Floyd situation. Which is what we need especially for black lives and any minorities in America.

We need to keep going though. We need to keep pushing for change until we all can live equal no matter who we are. Man, woman, black, white, and whatever else someone may identify as.

In my honest opinion human beings are the biggest problem in the world right now.

Also money and power are the root of all evil but that is a whole different problem.

Issues with society.

I walked into school with a bandanna on and a black girl next to me walked in with a headband that kind of looks like a bandanna. They let me in but told her she had to take it off, saying it was associated with gang violence. Not dress code violations, gang violence. That was racist. That doesn’t make the school racist. Even if multiple people have had this experience, that makes that teacher racist, not the school. America doesn’t have systematic racism, it has racist people. If I go to a cvs and one of the employees are being sexist, that doesn’t make all cvs’s sexist, it makes that person sexist and they deserve to be fired. Cancel culture has gotten out of hand and needs to be controlled.
