People who talk shit

Just getting home from a day at the office (haha, wish I could say that... instead it's a night on my feet at the o'wonderful world of Longhorn).  Don't get me wrong, I like it there the most part.  I've met some wonderful people (my one great follower included.. soon I'll have a couple more!!)  It also pays for me to go to school so I can hopefully live out my dreams.  However, it also pisses me off some days, I'm sure you know that feeling.

I don't get people who feel the need to talk shit.  I've come to the conclusion that if you are talking shit, it's because you are insecure with who YOU are and by trying to be big or talk someone else down, it makes you feel better.  That to me is just sad!!  Don't waste my time talking crap to me about the people in my life because when all is said and done, I'm going to think less of you and have to come home to blog about it, haha!!

Ok, enough with that.  I wish the world was different.  I think of this time to time and occasional things will set me off.  Yesterday, Jon and I went and watched a very powerful movie "Grand Torino".  If you haven't seen the movie or have no idea what it's about, basically it's about gangs, race, pride, hate, and things that make me sick to my stomach.  I guess now that I think of it, it makes sense that I wrote about people who talk shit bothering me; I don't understand why we can't all be equal.  Why do people have to be mean to one another, why is it that one color thinks they are better than another, why are there gangs, why do these gangs kill each other???  These questions really bother me; watch the movie... while it portrays very realistically what still goes on it parts of the world, it also gives you hope and makes you think.

I was able to find a preview of the movie and I have embedded it into this blog so you can take a peak if interested.  I know we have made large leaps and bounds; I mean look at our 44th President of the United States, that itself shows the progress this nation has made.  However, unfortunately, that's not enough in my heart.  I pray for less violence and more compassion and understanding in our world; our home.
