The world through my eyes today

I find that as we go along in this class it is very interesting to see what everyone is interested in.  As I sit and listen to everyone’s speeches I am amazed at how different each of us are.  I know from experience that most people just look at you and who you hang out with, and to them that is who you are.  I believe, people are more stand offish when it comes to really getting to know people.  As the world moves on people are getting scared to leave their homes unlocked and to even meet their neighbors.  I never thought there would come a day when I would have to lock my front door and wonder when someone was going to choose me to rob (of course I feel sorry for anyone who robs me they are not gonna get anything worthwhile).  Seriously, what is the world coming to?  You drive through the small town where you live and you see people dealing drugs right out in the open.  The cops can only do so much, but then again some of them are the biggest customers of those drug dealers.

Another thing I have noticed that is changing is the way families interact with each other.  There used to be a time when families sat down at the supper table every night and eat together.  But in this new day and age everyone is too busy.  Dad or mom are at work, the kids are in sports or other extracurricular activities, and supper is just whenever you come home and whatever you can grab.  Families are torn apart because there is not enough time in the day for them to be a family.  There are no family get togethers or game nights.  Parents today talk to their children through e-mails and text messaging.  Do parents even really know who their kids are or what they might become??  This is something that needs to change we need to get back to the older ways so to say.  We need to start having family suppers even if it is only one day a week.  Parents need to be more interactive with their children and learn who they are and what they like.  Maybe this would cut down on teenage drug use, pregnancy, and even crime.

I know that this blog does not have anything to do with speech class but I figured what better way to get some opinions out there to other people.

Thanks Candee for giving us a place to have some freedom of speech.

    The way I see it, families are not as close as they used to be due to way this country is ran. Back in the good ole days a family of six could be supported by 1 parent working. And by the good ole days, I am refering to the 1970s. Just 30 to 40 years ago. This is no longer possible, not in our classification anyway. The working people of this country have to give up way too much in order to survive in this country anymore and it is something that really needs to end. In todays society, in most cases anyway, unless both parents are working it is almost impossible for them to support a family of 4.

    This country has really gone down the toilet over the past 60 years and I can honestly say i am no longer interested in even living here anymore.

    I’m freakin movin to Europe!
