Society has become our Frankenstein. Our greatest monster. Although it has solved many of our fundemantal problems as a species, it is responsible for the belly of the beast, the underlying problems that plague us as humans. Society has made it weird to be human for the sake of being “normal”.

Humans have come a long way from our cave days. We’ve established cities and have advanced the species further than anyone could have imagined. Yet, as our numbers grow, a unique phenomenon occurs. We diffuse responsibility and tend to do lose all common sense. We’ve become obsessed with being normal, and any who refuses is outcaste as the black sheep.

We’ve seen countless individuals go into massive depressions and commit suicide because they’re ashamed of who they are. They’re different and are persecuted by the masses for being so.

Normalcy Is An Illusion

Normalcy is just an illusion. Its façade put up by those who can’t really see the masses for all that they are. We’re all different and instead of our suppressing our uniqueness, let’s showcase them. Many go outside, wear their masks and play their roles.

Generation Y has a great responsibility in taking down that wall that hinders so many.  Thanks to social websites like facebook, twitter, and tumblr, no generation has had their voices and talents shown like ours.

Normalcy Is An Illusion

We must continue to embrace each other for who we really are rather than who may seem to be. Don’t believe in our power? President Barack Obama would have never been elected nor reelected if it wasn’t for the youth vote, our vote. Aslong as our truths keep becoming more vocal, change will be inevitable.
