The Future…

Heavygrinder

I found this on the Facebook page HeavyGrinder … I have also since unliked the page, because this “post” is so stupid and so wrong.

I hate pictures like these…Just be grateful that we are not in a War…I wouldn’t want a Nazi defending me anyways! It’s pretty disrespectful as well, since that is what they fought for, for us to be safe. So that there are no more Wars

Also…the guy on the left is actually a Nazi solider…

There is SO much wrong with this comparison,lol…People can’t have fun anymore? I know plenty of young people in the Army who use snap-chat…It’s a good way to have some fun…We don’t know this boy, and you know what they say about assumptions!

The IRONY of someone posting about the young people being “weak” because of social media…While posting this picture on a social media platform, via a social media Facebook page … Oh the IRONY!

The solider is a German solider…So they want their children to be a Nazi?…We are VERY lucky in Australia…The kids in american are facing a battle right now. They don’t know when the next mass shooting will take place, but they still have to go…I’d call that extremely brave! Let alone all the cyber bullying that has just exploded these days.

Generation “Gap”

I’ve been trying to find this hashtag that I heard about last week, because there was tweet that sort of spoke to me and how different the generations are. Mainly because I completely disagreed with the tweet but also we’re not so different from the previous generation, we just have different “tools”.

 … One of the tweets got me because they said that

people used to travel on buses/trains without staring in phones…like psychopaths

Now this got to me because although most people now travelling with their phones or tablets. It is really different though? I can remember people reading books and their newspaper, or doing crosswords. I also don’t remember buses and trains/trams talking to complete strangers happily and bubbly, like it was the thing to do? I don’t know about anyone else, but I was taught to avoid strangers, especially when I was by myself.

So is having a piece of technology on a bus/train/tram really that different from having a book or a newspaper? Is it really more psychopathic?

There are different things between the generations, no doubt? But there are some that are just not that different to me.

Respect…

So I had an interesting talk about “respect” with a close male family member of mine tonight. Well I say “talk” it was more him texting me saying how I don’t respect him because I didn’t drop all my plans, even though we went out of our way to make other plans, it just wasn’t possible, because he’s family and I was told to “grow up” and he’ll talk to me then.

Respect is an interesting thing, it makes me curious that people who NEVER treat you with respect, expect it in return. It’s an interesting thing when a person will try to passively aggressively publicly ostracise you, but then turn into a whimpering mess when you hit back at them. It is interesting with how many people will say “Oh well, that’s just them” So it’s alright for them to do that, but it’s NOT alright for me to stand up to them, because that’s who I am.

I think in this world of today, you really have to know who you are. People these days seem to change with what ever works easier and no one wants any “drama”. Then I go and watch a show like “Band of Brothers” and think to myself “How would these guys feel about the generation of today” Would they think “This is what we died and suffered for? So someone could post a picture that isn’t even there own picture, and not even there own words to prove how there better than somebody else”…It’s pretty pathetic really.

All the interviews with the soldiers from the amazing tv series Band Of Brothers. I’ve never had any direct experience of war and i found these interviews really compelling and deeply moving.
