    no matter who they are, have a difficult time accepting their dark side so in order to come to grips with their negative actions or thoughts towards others, they have to vilify the person.

    This vilification can take many forms, from calling someone stupid to making them seem evil. By making the other person "less than," it gives them cover to do whatever they want, say whatever they want, and still see themselves as good.

    I think it's a human trait among people who are insecure and we ALL have insecurities to one degree or the other.

    I believe life is constantly changing, and always will but in order for a more consistent and positive change, more people will have to look within for answers, more people will need to self reflect and take responsibility for their actions. Unfortunately that's not easy to do, it's much easier to look outward and blame others; another facet of human nature.

    Where does it all end, it ends the same way it all started, with self. One person started an action, then another person chimed in and then another, but it all started with one person.

    I'm not preaching or calling anyone out because I can be just as guilty as the next person but I truly beleive in the saying, "we are the ones we have been looking for." Until more people realize this and stop waiting for the all powerful "whatever" to rescue them, life is, what it is.

    I will Not give up, I will Not give in, I will Not quit!
