Just watched a movie called “Meet John Doe”. About an ordinary man in an extraordinary situation. A world exists out there we don’t know. It is filled with people like us–just surviving.
There are things happening that we never hear about. The news programs don’t look for this because it isn’t sensational. I believe that ordinary people living is a sensation. We’re not fat cats living off of other people and what other people do. We are ordinary people living each day.
The news media treats us like we are invisible, like we don’t exist. If we truly didn’t exist, the media wouldn’t have jobs because we pay them; because they wouldn’t have jobs without us. Why should we be ignored? It is like we’re treated as if we are mushrooms. You know, kept in the dark and fed bu**s**t. Please fill in the blanks where the stars are. Why shouldn’t we count? Why should we be ignored? Why should only the oddballs, the weirdos, criminals, powerful, famous and rich count? When did being ordinary all of a sudden mean we should be ignored? Open your eyes and look around. We are being passed by because we aren’t sensational. That doesn’t mean we are unimportant! We count too.
