5,000 people lining up outside of Macy’s in NYC, I mean come on people, really?! Can you imagine if 5,ooo people lined up for something positive. What if those 5,000 people lined up and gave something away. They probably would feel much better. The average person nowadays has so much stuff, way too much stuff, literally weighing them down. I know I did.
Black Friday is disgusting to me. It represents so much that is wrong with this country (the world) in my opinion. Over consumption. Consume, stress, consume, stress. Want, want, want. Being tricked into thinking that material items equal peace. “When I get that new flat screen then I’ll really be able to relax”. Even thinking that love equals a toy, or a diamond, or a car. It doesn’t .
I’ll use my son for an example. He is just turning a year and a half old. He could care less about his toy truck, he only plays with it because I gave it to him. What he really enjoys is to get out of the house and take a walk, play in the park and walk right up to other little kids and give them hugs and kisses. That is the way we come into this world.
Unfortunately because of big business we quickly learn otherwise.
So if you really want to give someone a gift this holiday season, give them your time and energy. Listen to them, tell them you love them because you could die in the next minute and would this computer really matter?
I know my son would rather play with his dad then inherit his laptop.
