  • Somewhere out there, exists a place where values still mean something. Where ethics actually exist. Where a person’s word is as good as a contract. Where a person can vote their conscience, after becoming fully informed of the facts, not hoodwinked by those with the most money to spend to ensure that the only facts that are seen are the ones they want you to see. Where people don’t really believe they need to stockpile automatic and semi-automatic weapons, just because they can, where shooting rampages don’t become a regular occurrence on the news, where education isn’t dumbed down for “fairness” purposes, where anyone who dreams it can make it happen. A true land of opportunity.

    Yup, it’s still out there. In fact, I was just there the other day. It was great. People were happy, nobody was stressed out, everyone respected each other, and were friendly and kind to each other, there was lots of laughter, and music, and comraderie. It felt like old times, and I knew, I knew, such a place still existed, I was so happy that I finally found it, and just wanted to stay there forever, and come back and tell all my friends about it.

    I was just getting ready to do that….when I woke up.

    Do you think it could really be? Could we really make it happen, dream it, and then be it? Is there still a chance?

    Or, should I go back to sleep?
