My friend’s actually right but this is going to be so hard for me since I’m so awkward. :(
The other day I was organizing the stuff in my room. As I was arranging my books on the shelf, one book had come to my attention. It was Holes by Louis Sachar. It’s a young adult novel I read for a class back when I was in elementary. Though this novel was more about some treasure-hunt-turned-into-some-sort-of-path-finder, a scene, or more like a side story perhaps, struck me the most. It was about a young teacher, a white woman, who fell in love with this servant or service worker, a black man. Their affair was in secret for the community does not accept such relationship. The interaction of the whites and the blacks was unacceptable, frowned upon. This, along with other types of discrimination, has been an issue unresolved up until today.
I believe that our generation is one that is more accepting for the variety in race, culture, beliefs, and such, there are still those today who do not fully adhere to the idea of equality. Would it make a difference however if more people knew that we came from the same mother? That we came from the same gene? The same mdna? Our differences in skin color, height, and other features or characteristics only depend on where we are located, what our lifestyle is or how we are to survive depending on the circumstances. Our body changes to fit our environment. Our skin acts like sunblock or sunscreen depending on how exposed to sunlight we are. Our height depends on how high we are to reach or how low we are to bend to get the food we need. We are not different. We may seem different but we are essentially the same. There is no point in discrimination.
So back in grade school - high school, I used to be active in this online gaming thing. I would hang out in the forums of my guild and just chat. There was a time in the middle of high school that it disappeared. I was sad at first cause wow ok my friends are gone but obviously I got to move one from there. Now, the funny thing is that earlier today I got a message from some guy asking if I was <insert username here> and he told me to go back to the website. I got so confused so I tried to log in. Lo and behold it’s back but is still under renovation. So I checked the forums and saw a thread about people they missed and I was part of the people they missed and it turned out they devised a plan on how to look for us like they all checked if they had emails or whatever from before. Funny how they found me through my almost abandoned deviantart account and searched for me in fb. I swear these guys are so funny and I cant believe I had stalker friends.
