Americans Have Opinions to!
Last night after dinner my friends and I started discussing gay rights and politics which quickly spiraled into a discussion about the way and our tragically awful president. A new friend of mine is from England (he is dating one of my friends) and was saddened and confused on why Americans dont seem to accept people for who they or have opinions about things like the war, politics, gay rights, etc. I somehow felt like it was my mission to prove him wrong, well not really wrong, but show him that we are educated, we do have opinions, and we do believe strongly in things. I can speak for the parts of America that I have been and say that I have met some incredible people but in a sense certain Americans for the most part choose to be uneducated, they choose to be ignorant, they choose not to know what is going on around them. This is my message to them...Get it together! Our country, the land of the free, isnt so free anymore and its time we took a stance...TOGETHER!! We are having to start over and fight for our rights TOGETHER!!
