My name is Cameron. I was born in the state of Washington and have lived most my life in Utah. Utah is obviously known for the religion of “Mormons.” Well I am not one, and I don’t care if you are one. No hate, I just don’t want to be described or thought of by a religion that I don’t believe in. Though if you do not live in Utah, I feel like I should address the situation.
Growing up in a city where everyone seems to be Mormon can have a strange effect on your life and views. Take for instance always living in the future instead of taking care of today. You might not know what I am talking about. So let me explain a little bit of the thinking of this religion. Lds people feel that the future is when their happiness will come. If you are faithful, you will be selected as the righteous and will not be burned in Armageddon. This allows people to accept what happens in life and look towards the future when bad things go awry. So in a way every LDS person is waiting for the 2nd coming of Christ (Armageddon) because when their savior returns every problem in the world will be solved including their own. When everyone is looking for the future the present gets passed by. Now I am not saying that planing for the future is wrong, but how can you get over the past and enjoy the present if you are focusing on the hopes of someone else in the future? I believe that the time to act is now, and if you want something you have to believe in yourself and start this second to work for it. Though that truth is something that I never was able to see until recently because of the way that I have grown up and the teachings of the society that I grew up in.
I love being human and I love humans. In all our glory we are stupid, fragile, weak, bold, courageous, intelligent, peaceful, warmongers, hateful, happy, angry, sad, followers, and leaders. We are humans and this is our race. I believe on my better days that every man, women, and child deserves to have peace in their lives and not to be governed by anyone else but themselves. Take your own responsibility for your actions and you can believe what you want to believe and become what you want to be, but don’t hurt anyone else because everyone has the same right as you do.
I am a person who loves to joke and have fun. A recent topic for me is the media. Our country seems to be controlled by it. The true light of reporting what happens in life can be dark and dismal. I feel that it is OK to joke around and have fun with our weaknesses and triumphs. I am not trying to offend anyone, but I think we all need to start thinking more and stop worrying about the media and who does what and what celebrity is getting a divorce. There is more to life then the poison that gets fed to each individual with a Television-set. I will admit that most of my posts make fun of others and are mostly a lie. I write my posts only for entertainment purposes for me, if other enjoy what I have to say then so be it. I apologize for the celebrities and people I make fun of because secretly I look up to you in one way or another. You have all made a career doing what you love.
