I often observe social justice movements, religious dogma and even the personal beliefs of individuals; and I see that they each contain some valid points of concern- I want to be a part of the positive influences and change in our world, but I find my self questioning if it really means anything.

Everyone is fighting for something they care about; but in the end, who's to say whom was right? If the universe has any God(s) appointed to dictate what is right and wrong in the grand scheme of things, on what grounds are those decisions based? If not, then it's quite possible we're fighting pointless battles, dividing ourselves into \"them\" and \"us\" for what we may believe to be separation of the dim and the enlightened - but is actually wantonful segregation. Overlooking that while we may never all agree, all we'll ever be is \"we\".

If that is the case, shouldn't we admit to ourselves that our faith, our battles, our division is only half about doing what we think is right; and half just because we need something to believe in? As a young human, weary of my own potential to influence everyone I meet, as someone who wants to steer those who may look to me for guidance in the right direction: I HAVE TO KNOW.
