Man in the Mirror

*If you want to make the world a better place take a look at yourself and make a... CHANGE*

Those words were immortalize by Michael Jackson in his song Man in the Mirror, and lately they have been hitting hard in my heart. The death of Michael was tragic but those words will live with me forever. I am realizing now how important it is to be a good person. Not just in the sense of general kindness but to truly try to bring positivity into the world. So I thought how can I make a CHANGE? The one thing that came to mind was how I am so frustrated by something and am not doing a thing about it. I'm starting with the man in the mirror. It's time for a CHANGE!

-I'll clear up some of my vaugness

We have come so far in terms of gay rights, but we still have miles to travel. It's not a question of when they will have the same equal rights as every other american does, but why don't they have them now?

Most opposed to gay marriage will tell you it is because of their religion, or that's just what I believe. Well do you want to know what I believe, I believe thats a bullshit excuse.

We are in the land of the FREE , not in the land of the REPRESSED! We pride ourselves on our equality and freedom, yet deny the most precious of all freedoms to 10% of our population. This is not acceptable and needs to CHANGE NOW!

So this is how I will make the world a better place. This is how I am going to CHANGE. I am not going to sit back anymore and let this stay the way it is. It's time everyone took a look at themselve and make a CHANGE!
