There are so many issues out there. Horrible headlines, questionable politics, taxpayer money going down the drain. Not to mention all the personal offenses regularly hashed out.
I can't live like that.
I care. I get outraged. (I question whether or not "raising awareness" has become an end in itself, leaving us all with a comfortable feeling of knowledge, when in fact, we may have accomplished nothing WITH our knowledge and awareness. But that's another post....)
Anyhow. I need a break from time to time. And so do you. Let's raise awareness about the need to smile - scratch that, let's just smile, that'll raise awareness more subversively - even though the world still has a lot of problems. After all, the world has a lot of good going on too. For example - you just read my blog. And that makes me all warm inside.
And thus I am declaring Outrage-Free Friday! You may return to your outrage tomorrow.
Who's with me? Anyone?
*sound of crickets*
Are you outraged at my lack of outrage? That's ok. I'm outrage-free about that.
Come oooonnnnnn ... You know you want to.
