Something I wrote for my friend's assignment. Studying the human behavior befor and after. So i wrote what many people in Puerto Rico and all across the world thought. I really hope you like it. I hope that also after you read this you can reflect on the cruelty in the society and the goverment. Thank you and have a nice day.

Before what hurt the most was a scraped knee, the most dificult choice was which ice cream flavor to buy, betrayal only happened in movies and games, hypocrisy was word we couldnt write, black was just a color, when we were kids we had a inocent way of thinking. Our childish crushes never hurt, cards would be handed out just for a kiss and then by the week the love was forgoten. The biggest drug we had was cough medicine. Now we choose who we are with people, life demands us to be strong and frightening. Now what hurts most is the truth and a broken heart. You dont get spanked by your parents, you get the shit beaten by gangs. Before sex was if you were a boy or a girl, now its boy AND girl. We learned that HOMO mean HUMAN, now we know its some different specie of our tree of humanity. Things change, especially us. Times are not dificult, people just dont accept what they have done. Control is forgoten and excuses are made. What used to be the most importante thing in life is now the most annoying thing in the world. Before we looked foward going on trips with our family, now we cringe by just the thought of stepping in the house. Before skirts were cute, now if you are a twenty year old with a skirt it means your a slut. Those who do no think the same are banished from sight or from existence, those people called queer, strange, freaks. How can we point out the wrong from the right? When can we open our eyes and look upon this estranged world we live in. Do we even know at which point in history did we fuck up? We enslave people in their own country, take their belongings, then turn them into what they are. If they do not comply, they are killed. If it wasnt enough we could look at Osama Bin Laden, Fidel Castro, Adolf Hitler, Christopher Colombus, The Black Panthers, Charles Mason, Judas. In what point did we have to be so cruel? Now rape, theft, enslavement, carnage, rage, pain, suffering, betrayal, its all hip. You can hardly see a hippie tree hugger singing we are the world or even Kumbaya. Things have changed so fast. Now you see a video of a baby smoking cigarets, you see a child holding a gun and killing what he believes are enemies. Why do we have to fight so much? Honor? Excuses, petty escuses that people make. Its all just gain, power, fame, money. When can we look at what we are doing? When do we stop being blind?
