In high school I read '1984' by George Orwell. The novel depicts a state of constant war, a society that is under perpetual surveillance and a censored media. I graduated high school in 2000. At that time this plot seemed extremely far fetched. The last few years, however, have led me to think otherwise. The news only speaks of superficial matters, such as celebrity feuds; the government distracts us with unimportant matters while passing laws which allow them to read all of our emails, text messages and record phone calls (read about the NSA). We never hear about important matters, such as the Bradley Manning trial or international political matters. Anyway, sitting around with friends the other night, we debated everything from abortion to the Zimmerman trial. I walked away from that discussion a little upset. Not only upset about things that are unjust, but mainly upset that there really isn't much I can do other than voice my opinion to as many people as I possibly can. However, as crazy as this sounds, what keeps me content is that for some reason I still have faith in humanity. I still believe that there are good people out there. The next few images I post here will prove my point.
This particular Subway location offers free food for the homeless.
Concert goers in Colorado allow this kid in a wheelchair to experience crowd surfing.
Dry cleaners in Portland, Oregon offer free service to those going for a job interview.
So there you have it. There are good people out there, you just need to pay attention to the positive things that are out there.
