Do not understand.
Like Jessie Wangler said- We in Canada have no idea what it is like to live in a place where our rights are not protected. Where we are not safe. We have no idea.
Okay to die for the greater good?
Would I be okay to die for the greater good?
‘I got to a place where I was okay to die. I was not scared of it because I knew it was better for my country.’ This is what the woman we connected with from Egypt said today. Unbelievable.
The School of Global Media Studies students are connected to people all over the world as we speak.
Human rights are violated everyday.
We take people in our lives for granted everyday.
We get upset if the traffic is bad, or cell phone isn’t working properly, their isn’t enough hot water or if the food doesn’t taste right. We get upset if a meeting runs late, we miss our lunch break or our clothes don’t fit properly.
THE FUTURE GENERATION MUST REALIZE-
-People are getting raped, denied school, infected with HIV. A child does not know the feeling of a full stomach and is so full of worms they do not have the energy to play- will never get an education and if they make their 5th birthday it is a miracle.
We complain and complain everyday. People as a whole I mean. About what?
WHAT GIVES US THE RIGHT TO COMPLAIN!?
We can do, be and have anything we want while being safe and comfortable.
What do you complain about? Do you have the right to complain?
What happened to people making the most of everything?
Students- I CHALLENGE YOU!
