Every day, something is happening in all places around the globe. The world is changing, as well as humanity itself along with nature. Political views, economic policies and all sorts of upheavals are happening concurrently.
In all these changes, I feel left out. This morning, I was early for work so I decided to read the newspaper for a change. There’s the news about the fire in California. Seven people died and a lot lost their properties.
Recently there has been an explosion in one of the popular malls in the Philippines (Glorieta). There were speculations of terrorist attack but the authorities said it was an accident. Nothing more to it.
These are just a few. At least the few that I know off. Then I made this comment about the article 377a as my way of reaching out and trying to be a part of what’s happening out there.
Some appreciated my post and there were some who thinks voicing out my opinion contradicts my view of letting the matter rest. I don’t mind though. In the very least, someone else read my post.
Going back to current events, I still don’t know what’s happening around me. On the other side of the world. I don’t even know what’s happening in my own country.
Time is flying right past by me and I can’t do anything about it. There’s a lot of things I want to do, a lot of things that I still need to learn and I’m not sure how I am going to accomplish all these things.
In trying to console myself, I realized something. The gravity that world issues poses does not amount to my insignificance. Rather, it just means that the world is big. I am just human.
Thinking about it, I still know something. I am still a part of my family and friend’s lives. I know what’s happening to their lives. I am still a witness to their history.
So what, they’re not famous and influential? Well they mean everything to me. The rest of the world remotely affects me of course. But it doesn’t directly equate to who I am.
This is not my excuse for not updating myself with the news. For that, I have none. This is more of my reason for still trying to live the best way I can. And I’m glad.
