Tuesday, February 10, 2009
It's 2009. It is nine years into the millennium. So far, we've got web 2.0, a Bush legacy, and reality TV to show for it. Yet, what else represents this era to our Y generation? There’s war, global warming, collapsed economy, increasing apathy. Possibly the great disconnect between all that is true and all that is said on TV, in politics, out of our very mouths. Then again, 2009 brings information to our fingertips, communication around the globe, and awareness of the seemingly ever dividing disconnect. We are now capable of perceiving all that surrounds us by simply clicking away at our Internet search engines or skimming our iPhone. Through virtual reality, we learn about genocide in Darfur, local peace rallies, steroids in baseball, and how to bake cookies.
What we do next is our responsibility. Proceed with newly acquired knowledge into the real world and...ACT.
