"I once had this dream that there was this set of special bombs hidden all over the world. The bombs looked like hinged glass balls with intricate whirring mechanisms inside. Some were dangerous, some were good, all of them changed the universe in different ways. There was one, the perfect bomb, the one everyone searched for: the Love Bomb.

In the dream someone had found one of the bombs. A small group of us gathered on a hill and he showed it to us. It was beautiful; all the gears and spindles inside were different colors, working furiously. "Do you know what this is?" he said and smiled. Then for just a split-second, he opened it, and the world changed.

Huge flowers and trees burst from the ground and opened. Beautiful buildings of grand design shot up along the horizon. Birds that we'd never seen flew into the air, banners and streamers unfurled across the sky which was on fire with color and light. Everything seemed to dance and leap into the air and change color. Tears streamed down our faces as we saw it all, felt it all, as we felt this beautiful music and joy and love filling our lungs like too much air. And the whole world, the entire universe felt it.

When he closed the bomb, we almost tore him apart trying to get it back.

Today, all this purple hoopla, should be about combating all the meanness in the world with a ferocious goodness. What the hell is "different"? We're all fucking different. We're all WILDLY different. Just start loving everyone, because everyone's worthy of love. You put that love out into the sphere and it'll be felt. You open a love bomb." -

This is exactly what I feel about everything right now. All the utter shit that has been going down. Why can't we just shut the fuck up about how different is 'wrong' and grow the fuck up and get over ourselves? Because really, all it takes is to sit up, take notice and do something about what's been happening. Really. To not let people get away with being bullies and bigots because society considers them more important then the people that they are bullying.

So, stand the hell up and do something! Because no one deserves to be pushed to the point where they feel that life isn't worth living.

Hey! Nah, it's fine that you added me. The more friends the better I say. *grins* I'll be glad to add you.

Yeah, this is just something that I feel really strongly about. No one deserves to think that what they go through and who they are is less then anyone else. And I just wish that people would take notice when it's happening to someone and do something because it can change so much.

Yay for friends!

I agree there. Pretty much everyone goes through a truly terrible experience with hatred once or twice in their lives. Others deal with them every single day. But ALL of it has to stop. If people would stop being so horribly self centered and stuck in their belief systems, EVERYONE would live happier lives. *shakes head* One of these days people will figure that out. At least, we can hope they will. :)
