escapism at it’s finest
THIS is what they should be showing you in US history in high school. Watch this. Then tell everyone you know to watch this.
“People say all the time, ‘well, I don’t understand how people could have tolerated slavery?’ ‘How could they have made peace with that?’ ‘How could people have gone to a lynching and participated in that?’ ‘That’s so crazy, if I was living at that time I would never have tolerated anything like that.’ And the truth is we are living in this time, and we are tolerating it.”
When you’re in the middle of the forest, all you can see are the trees. When you get stuck or fixate on something, try to remember the bigger picture. Life isn’t meant to be lived for one big moment. Enjoy the little things. Feel the warm of the coffee cup on your hands in the morning, watch the way your friends eyes light up when they talk, smell the rain after the storm..whatever it may be, enjoy it.
