“ I was in love when I was young
And I’ve never been free again
That’s a promised fruit when you’ve first begun
That ripens into pain ”
“It’s New Brunswick, it just keeps getting better.” err’day
perched on a fence gazing at the sterile beauty
The xx- Hot Like Fire
What has been lost is the feeling of ownership—an altruist definition of it. We built this country on fairness, to break away from the unfair British rule, which if I remember correctly, had a heavy focus on supporting the wealthy and spent little effort improving the lives of the lower class. The one thing that really stood out to me today was that people really do have voices and they need to take the bull by the horns and let themselves be heard. Now this idea of the peoples’ voices being heard is nothing new, however, being there I was able to understand it through a new lens. These are our lives and we should have a say in what goes on. As a society we do need government. Even if we were to strip down to nothing, natural leaders would emerge and people would begin to organize again. What needs to change is the severe entitlement issues that people have these days. We will never be able to feel the fiery passion that our four-fathers felt during the birth of this country. However we can acknowledge it, appreciate it, emulate it and re-write it into a new reform. Change is possible, it’s inevitable—we just need to own it.
With fall here, we felt that it was appropriate to have a little 11 AM Preclass photoshoot in our favorite Cedar tree by Passion Puddle, a tree we have spent lots of time in during the previous semesters, but have yet to climb much during this very busy semester… Fitting since we were wearing the same color scheme and all (which we swear was not planned, it just happens!)
sometimes i feel the same way since i transferred to rutgers, like no offense.
a little buffalo bill but nevertheless awesome
