Living our lives during the Millennial year is full of surprises.
Advance Technology have made our lives more convenient that most of us can do multiple things all at the same time. We could communicate with people from the other side of the world that as if they are just a few steps away from us.We could perform task with just a click of an icon. We could go around without exerting much effort and/or doesn’t require any physical strength.We could know what’s happening around the world with just scrolling down from our tablets or mobile phones that seems to be attached to our hands 24/7.
Because of these advances, It allows us to see, explore, listen, discover, and at the same time JUDGE one another instantly. Suddenly, we become critics on how things should be done or what should be done. Throwing blame at one another instead of combining our knowledge to solve the issues we are now facing.
Instead of sharing stories about how great it is to come and explore each other’s country, Violence, Hate, Racism, and Chaos are the topics you’ll be reading from any social or media sites.
News from all over the world have become depressing rather than exciting, I’m afraid for the younger generation that will be the successor of our failures and problems if we don’t solve them NOW.
How sad it is to see children suffering from wars, Mothers weeping because of violence, men fighting against their own government.
I’m not ranting here don’t get me wrong. I’m just sad how the world is today.
I’m from the Philippines, but currently living in Dubai. Stories and news I hear about my own country makes me scared to go back home. Even though life there is more fun as our slogan says ” It’s more fun in the Philippines“, but coming face to face with the reality that could come at me when I step foot considering the Unemployment rate, Traffic that could cause you your precious time, violence of people killing each other and accepting the fact that the government is not that well managed sends shivers down my spine.
60% of me wants to go home to my family, cherish the moments I could spend with them during the weekends, exploring the beautiful islands my country treasures, laugh and have an adventure with my friends who I have known for so long, but the 40% of me is afraid of how will my future be if I go back to the chaotic world I have to face in order for me to make a living.
I know I’m not alone with this kind of question in mind. We all want to be home, but we have to sacrifice in order for us to live peacefully.
