I’ve had writer’s block for the past few days, and, frankly, I’m at a loss for words for what is going on in the world right now.
I have been following Anonymous on Twitter and tumblr, and I love them.
I completely believe in what they’re doing. Where some people may see it as an act of terrorism against the government, I see it as an act of courage, of freedom. They are standing up for what millions of people deserve and want – and, ironically, they don’t even know how much of their freedom is being stripped away from them day to day.
I just wish people would open up their eyes, and maybe be a bit more aware of what’s going on in the world.
Wednesday’s word is: awareness.
Quotes on Awareness:
“To Think and be fully alive are the same.” – Hannah Arendt
“But of course there are all different kinds of freedom, and the kind that is most precious you will not hear much talked about in the great outside world of winning and achieving and displaying. The really important kind of freedom involves attention, and awareness, and discipline, and effort, and being able truly to care about other people and to sacrifice for them, over and over, in myriad petty little unsexy ways, every day. “ – David Foster Wallace
Quotes by Anonymous (writers):
“Concern should drive us into action and not into depression.”
“Be alert to give service. What counts a great deal in life is what we do for others.”
Awareness quote to think about:
“We are to awaken from the illusion of our separateness.” – Thich Nhat Hanh
Thank you to Anonymous for being the interesting highlight of my week. Keep on hacking. I expect it.
