Today

Today I don't want to hear about someone who was murdered.

Today I don't want to hear about good people losing their jobs.

Today I don't want to hear about children being abandoned by their parents.

Today I don't want to hear about a family who lost their home to fire.

Today I don't want to hear about people who can't afford to buy food.

Today I don't want to hear about rich people who spend their money on cars and T.V's.

Today I don't want to hear about any celebrity relationships.

Today I don't want to hear about a drunk driver running over a pedestrian.

Today I don't want to hear about how much worse the economy is.

Today I don't want to hear about someone who was killed for their shoes.

Today I don't want to hear about a plane crash that killed everyone on board.

Today I don't want to see gas prices going up.

Today I don't want to hear about employees bathing in kitchen sinks.

Today I don't want to hear about how bad kids have it in an orphanage.

Today I don't want to hear about someone who robbed a store for no more than $10.

Today I don't want to hear about how drug use has gotten worse.

Today I don't want to hear about a girl getting killed because of Myspace.

Today I don't want to hear about any more corrupt police officers.

Today I don't want to hear about girls getting raped in their own home.

Today I don't want to hear about more people dying because of a natural disaster.

Today I don't want to hear about how poor the education system is.

Today I don't want to hear about more soldiers dying.

Today I don't want to hear about how polluted the air is.

Today I don't want to hear about how many people have no insurance.

Today I don't want to hear about hate.

Today I don't want to hear about prejudice.

Today I don't want to hear about racism.

Today I don't want to hear about fighting.

Today I don't want to hear about anger.

Today I don't want to hear about selfishness.

Today I don't want to hear about death.

Today I don't want to hear about war.

Today it doesn't matter how much I don't want to hear about all that

because today I did hear about it.

Today I will have to wait for what I don't want to hear about tomorrow.
