Emily: Focusing on mental health, communication, and understanding would help in so many different areas.

I’ve seen a lot of ugly in this world. But I’ve also encountered some pretty amazing people.

Sometimes we get overwhelmed and only think/hear about the bad parts of people or things in general. But there are good people out there. Those who help lift, support, and encourage you.

Currently, I feel that we all need to focus on our mental health. Some people don’t focus on it enough or simply joke about it. Going to a therapist doesn’t mean you’re crazy. We all need help sometimes. Focusing on mental health, communication, and understanding would help in so many different areas. Whether it’s related to crime, relationships, illness, racism etc. It’s not going to solve everything. But it’s a start.

I try not to get overwhelmed by the negativity or bad things in this world. But its tough.

Idk if that all made sense 😅I tend to ramble

Angelina Vigilone: People either realized they weren’t good for each other or have come to compromises.

Alright well my general thought on the world today is that it has poked so many holes in the America the Free thing. During covid, people were out of work, out of ability to get the things they needed, going through the most intense thing any of the past few generations of human beings have gone through mentally, but had to go without mental help and simple rest. Simultaneously, rich people, the government, multimillion dollar corporation owners profited off of the death of poor American citizens, profited off of the worst thing that has happened not only to our nation but the world. And now, even though the pandemic is still happening, governments and health officials decide to ignore the situation because they want the profits that they were getting prior. During this pandemic so many poor people have realized that we truly are just a number, and a piece to help Jeff Bezos go in to space for 12 minutes while we lost over 4 million people to covid, and who knows how many because of suicide during the pandemic. And i think the lower class have a consciousness that has become heightened. More and more people stand hand in hand willing to strike to be given what their worth, more people understand that our system doesn’t have to be the way it is and its only the way it is because of greed. I think this pandemic has brought a lot of people together in wanting to fight for their rights as a human being, and not some pawn in the who can get the richest chess game Along with that, I genuinely don’t know much about crime rates, but what i do know is that police officers continued to kill POC in the streets as we all went out, pandemic safe, with masks as distanced as possible, to plead/demand that something be done. When your country is screaming why won’t anyone hear it? I think crime would be less of a problem if we took a fucking fraction of the military budget, the local police budgets, and put them back into the communities. Put it into mental health programs, rehabilitation, fresh food for communities. Put love instead of fear into the people and see what the people do. But instead, the worst criminals are the ones in charge of everyone else. While they focus on petty things and get away with murder, serious criminals are put on the back burner. I think that people are also breaking out of the mold of traditional monogamy because they have realized that life is too short to settle and to only hoard love for a single person. Everyone has the right to explore and learn about themselves as they please as long as their partner is loving and willing, and i think relationships have become a beautiful thing. People either realized they weren’t good for each other or have come to compromises about learning more about themselves before giving all of themselves to their partner and i think thats lovely

Aiya: I’ve just been focusing on myself lately so for the most part I kind of just disassociated myself from the world

I think with everything that’s been happening it really showed who people really are It really brought out the pretty and the ugly in everyone I feel like that’s why we’ve spent so much of the past year just being in shock at what people are doing I’m going to be honest, I’ve just been focusing on myself lately so for the most part I kind of just disassociated myself from the world if that makes sense But with the things I have been focusing in I did start noticing more how people are stuck where they are because they subconsciously try to please people I’ve also been noticing more why people do what they do I’m not sure if that goes with your question, it was just something that’s been on my mind

Ashleigh Weigle: we all need to focus energy on the environment

I think it needs substantial improvement especially here in the US, and globally we all need to focus energy on the environment but that is not to say there aren’t good things. I think the pandemic overall has bonded millions of people and the fact that we have to stay inside is making people realize how much they love others, so we have hope for unity at some point.
