Perhaps Some Thought In It
as they played the national anthem in the hall, i found myself automatically spraying out the words. not because i wanted to, but like i said, automatically. subconsciously. things like patriotism isn't something you can force onto others. certainly not through books, or songs for that matter. tell me exactly, how does singing a song instill love, passion, and trust perhaps? i am bewildered at whoever that came up with this concept.
don't get me wrong, i'm not bashing the country. i'm just trying to figure why certain things are done as they are.
the famous quote, "ask what you can do for your country, not what the country can do for you". each person would sacrifice what they deem fit. it's a question of depth. some would do nothing at all. because perhaps in retrospect, maybe nothing has been gained, except for losses.
in this situation, when there's a negative perception, or even a neutral view, would a song and class be able to reach and plant feelings into one's soul?
if it were so easy, i don't think that would define us as humans no longer. because we're just that complicated. intricate details of a person, makes us diverse and unique. it's stereotypical in a way to think everyone could be handled so easily. again, if only we're that simple.
my point is, why are we burdened with all this unproductive stuff if it's not gonna work? because we just need to, don't we? my brain cells are abundant, so let's waste 'em. my youth is abundant, so let's waste it.
i'm just saying, sometimes we let the unimportant take over our lives, time to get back into the game.
perhaps, perhaps, perhaps.
for the pic-enthusiast. i know my blog has never been the aviation one, so for those who just like to see a different sight, here you go!
an SIA if i'm not wrong. 2000feet above us.
