Been pondering on violence in movies and the value of life portrayed in them. I saw the new 300 movie today and it’s all “guts for glory”. Honor in death. It’s just pure death. I mean I liked the movie and it was pretty epic in my comic-book-loving eyes. Well shot. Insane action. Swords.
And then I think about movies where we love characters. And don’t want them to die. Where we cry with their families. And feel genuinely hurt by our loss. Stories that send us home and reevaluate our lives and situations. Who we are and how we treat others.
What I’ve been really turning over is how desensitized we are towards some but not others. I personally hate people but love persons. I believe that individuals are more likely to do the right thing than a group of people are. I just don’t fully trust the pack mentality. I mean look at the majority of governments. Are our interests as individuals protected? Here in America I would say not. I think a lot of people are too butthurt about other people’s opinions to fully understand the meaning of the first amendment.
I have something in common with every person on this planet whether they believe it or not. Every person has a story. And it’s easier to ignore or hate someone we don’t know or understand. I’m just a man I guess. “I’m not scared to die, I’m a little bit scared of what comes after”.
I’ve been having trouble staying grounded in reality lately. Like I’ve been searching for something. Like I’ve forgotten something. Or someone. I mean what are we without love? Without other persons? Without inside jokes or warm memories? And how, as a people, have we been pushed away from wanting that? How are we so selfish?
I don’t know if anyone will read this. Or if anyone even agrees, but if you’ve made it this far, just know that you’re loved. Even on your worst days. Even when you’re alone. In your head. Geographically. Spiritually.
Because, shit, I have bad days too. I’ve had suicidal thoughts. I’ve lost people I love. I’ve made it through nights I never thought I would. I’ve given up. I’ve hurt myself because I just don’t care. And I know some of you have too. I’m just as human as you. I can love as completely and wholly as you. And I want you to know that as persons we can be people joined in love. We can be best friends. Or casual buds. Even pen pals.
Thank you for making it this far. I hope you know that you can talk to me. I’ve got an ask button just like everyone else. Just don’t underestimate the value of another person. Or a hand up when you need one.
