Spunky’s State of the Union Address

“I can’t believe this world sometimes.”
Yeah, the world, even my small world, is in a pretty pitiful shape nowadays.
People have no sense of loyalty or trueness. Lying and deciet drips from every action or statement. Today I hang my head in defeat, and think maybe it’s not up to me to right this world of its wrong. Maybe I don’t need to confront every issue. Maybe people are better left in their own little worlds, happy and unaware. When the day of truth comes then they’ll know. They’ll look back and with clarity know that I too knew all along.
Why can’t we treat each other with respect and dignity? Why must people cause so much pain and hack away at such valued qualities as your personal confidence and self worth?
This time I think I keep silent.
