From the land of possibilities

Dear reader,


It was a lazy afternoon... you know, the hollywood-grade cliche ones., as I laid on my bed, I got to thinking, the world around me was changing rapidly, new ideas, opinions, innovations, dangers, ways of doing things, kinds of people and the things through which we lived our lives. Then I asked myself, was I also changing along with the world, was I changing "against" it or was I being left behind in the wake of change. As I pondered on this, I drifted into the land of endless possibilities in which I was King and had no worries, needs, wants, troubles. I hadn't been here since I was a mere child. Feelings of nostalgia came over me as I  looked back on the good old days with a large grin on my face. Buzzzz!!!!!! my alarm went off and in an instant I was back on my bed thinking, It had been so long since I dreamt about anything, about how someday I was gonna rule the world and make it a place of endless possibilities. As I approached the fridge for some midday carb fest, I came upon a shocking story on CNN, a madman, dressed up as the joker (from batman)  had just ended the lives of innocent people in a cinema. 
        I stood there staring blankly at the screen, Suddenly I was hit by shock....not shock at the random shooting, no, I was shocked at the fact that such a story didn't shock me anymore. How did we get here? What went wrong? We now live in a world where practically anything goes now. People have no fear of God anymore and majority of people now don't hold the proper place for family values. Entertainment companies are far more interested in making money than in the kind of messages and values they're passing on to people, people are far more interested in getting their quick "fix" of entertainment than in what kind of content they're consuming. The world is becoming populated by Godless, senseless, destructive people going nowhere at light-speed. For lack of a better activity at the time,  I paced back and forth for a while, then headed back to my bed. Still thinking, still dreaming, as I closed my eyelids, and boarded a ship back to the land of endless possibilities, I whispered to myself, "I'm gonna change the world someday."
