I have been thinking a lot about the place we find ourselves in the world lately.
Things aren't great, from Brexit to Trump, Putin to Separated families and on and on, it really feels like there is a whole lot of darkness in the world right now.
To put it simply everything feels fucked, and I don't see it getting better any time soon, I don't think any of us do. I don't simply mean a left or right bias of fucked either. No one is getting what they want from the Brexit deal, no one benefits from the president of the USA talking almost in openly treasonous ways whilst visiting the Russian President, most of the people who voted for Trump did so on the basis that he would put America first.
I started to think of all the stories of the people who have positively impacted the world, Nelson Mandela, Martin Luther King, Gandhi etc. None of them tell a particularly easy story, none of the things that they achieved came without significant struggle and sometimes significant pain.
I think of these people and the lives they lead, and then I look at the state of the world we live in today and think to myself. Am I doing enough... I think the answer is no.
You cant take the weight of the world on your back and fix it all, but what good am i doing here tweeting about the things that I think are going wrong? and every second that I spend doing less than I should, who am I letting down?
There are so many people in the world that deserve so much better and I recognise that and I'm still not doing enough. In its own way thats probably worse than the people who don't care about these things at all.
So tell me, how can I do more? Who can I help? Do you think you are doing enough? What can you change? What can we do together?
