When I would be in a shit hole third world country dealing with evil, destruction, and poverty. I appreciated what I had back home. Because when I got back home I took it for granted. I took advantage of things. I went back to my lazy ass American life on my lazyboy and my cable T.V., my Internet and all the things that we feel are precious or you know. Not even a luxury. It’s like it’s a right to have that shit now. I see my kids playing with all the toys and shit in the world that they have everything they ever could need and want. In America we have every opportunity to make something of ourselves.You go overseas and you’ll see kids playing with a piece of wire they turned into a wheel and another piece of wire to roll it down the street and there’s twenty kids chasing it and you put things in perspective really quick. And you realize. You know what? Yeah, it is a good deal. It’s fucking awesome. So be true to yourself. Don’t abandon your core. And fight for what you believe in. Because very soon one day it might be gone. Especially if we don’t fight for it.
