The only absolute in this life is change itself. (Cliche but true, right? Stick with me.)
Every moment of our lives change is afoot. It’s within and around us all day, every day. In those every-moments we have an opportunity to affect that change.
There’s no stopping it, only directing it. Preserving the status quo will always be a short-term game pursued by those in power at the expense of those who are not.
The real question is will the changes happening in and around you right now going to be progress or regress? Are you getting older and wiser through introspection and analysis; or are you becoming worn down and cynical out of laziness? Does your self, family, community, and environment benefit from your existence; or are you dead weight?
The way is up to us, the change is not. Try not to waste too much time in apathy and fear. That’s easier said than done, but stewing doesn’t help. So, get in the game and make yourself and your small part of the world better. Oh yeah: and buy this shirt. (And if someone asks you what it means, tell them it’s better than the only alternative.)
