The Holiday Season
The holiday season is a time for us to spend with our families and take a step back and look at ourselves. When I take a step back, I see a country full of people that are stagnant. There is no progress, but progress is needed. I see people that are shallow, people that care more about Kim Kardashian and Kanye West moving in together than they do about world hunger and global warming. I also see a country full of hypocrites. People, like myself, that preach taking action, but never take action themselves.
Lastly, the holiday season is celebrating your religion. I am Christian. 78.4 percent of America is Christian, and 32 percent of the entire world is. One of the main rules that God had for Christians is to take care of the earth. This is not happening. Most if not all of our politicians are Christian, and they aren’t taking action either. Al Franken had this to say about Christians:
The point is that there is tremendous hypocrisy among the Christian right. And I think that Christian voters should start looking at global warming as a religious issue that speaks to the culture of life.
I agree with this whole-heartedly. We don’t think of global warming as something that can affect our daily lives, much less the expensive culture of our country. In order to take action, we are going to have to work together. We will have to put our differences aside, and isn’t that what the holiday season is all about?
