You want to know the God’s honest truth people? I would have loved to have called my blog/show “Here Comes the Love,” but this nation has made the word “Love” uncool and even too uncomfortably affiliated with religion. If you start to talk about love, people think your some sort of religious fanatic. How ridiculous is that? I am serious! The mofos out there even killed Barney for Christ sakes (It was a purple dinosaur you couldn’t miss in the 90’s)!!! People felt Barney, who represented unconditional love, did not do enough to show us the negative side of life….. unbelievable..
The evil we have been fed through the popular media is giving us more anger towards another, than love for each other. Like how hard is it for people to say, “I am going to live my life and be happy, and I don’t give a flying fuck what you do with yours!! Just be happy.” For some reason, people still don’t understand that the world is not going to nuke itself. Other than North Korea’s crazy ass and a few others, this world predominantly wants to see mankind prosper and care for each other with love (or that word people are so afraid of). Some of you out there might be like “WTF!? No!? Everyone still has it out for us! Fucking Terrorists Bro…..” Hello! It’s 2017. Stop letting this constant fear mongering media make you feel like we, as Americans, are powerless! With understanding of each other, we are never and will never be powerless!
You don’t think by now there is a large percentage of Americans who have cyber and/or real friends who reside in what the popular media leads us to believe are so-called “Enemy Countries?” I went to college and I met people who lived all over the world! From Communist Countries to Capitalistic Countries to 3rd World Countries and most everyone happened to be super cool people. Now I personally prefer Capitalism because “Hell Yeah America”, Nuff Said…. But it didn’t mean I was walking around to every foreign exchange student calling them “Commies.” Come on now, I might be an ex-football player, but trust me I am not that dense in the head. It was getting the opportunity to meet these people, to understand how they grew up and how that molded their beliefs. That helped me to truly realize the power of love.
Love is a major ingredient in understanding that your opinions are not the only right ones. We are all victims of our own upbringing and perspective. I might not agree with what some people believe in or practice, but it doesn’t mean I must separate someone or an entire community from my life. If I don’t like seeing two men kiss, that doesn’t make me a bad guy! And it for sure doesn’t mean I have a personal vendetta against the Gay community. Shit, I got some gay homies. People are different. The more you surround yourself with people different than yourself, the more you will learn to “love” and respect the differences. If you don’t take the opportunity to see and understand a side of a story that you are completely unfamiliar with, well then you are an ignorant schmuck…. Here is an interesting article from WIkiHow on understanding and admiring cultural differences Link.
Anyway….. Yeah love is now a bad word….. I guess I will have to replace the word “Love” with “Moderation and Understanding.” Whatever, “Moderation is all you need”…
