If the pen and the sword are interchangeable in terms of resistance, than I am a knight and the people are my kingdom.

Real-Life Superheroes

I condone vigilantes prowling our city streets in the night.

Self-professed "Crime Fighters", they seem to be quickly rising in popularity. But do they really fight crime?

Well, first we have to decide exactly what it means to 'fight crime'.

Do you have to beat up criminals to 'fight crime'? Do you have to be an expert at martial arts? Do you have to be feared and intimidating to 'fight crime'?

Not at all.

If you see a crime being committed, and you take out your cellphone and call the police, than you are inherently fighting crime. If you equip red and green latex tights, walk up to a crime-in-progress, hold out your hand and shout, "stop right there, criminal scum", and they take one look at you and start laughing, than you are still inherently fighting crime. It's your self-professed job to be what the city needs you to be, even if it is just a laughing stock, because you can be that hero. If you walk up to a crime-in-progress and purposely shit your pants, nauseating and freaking out the criminals, causing them to panic and flee, then hold your head up high, you have nothing to be ashamed of. You've done what you've set out to do. Fight crime.

It seems to me that anyone can be a superhero, as long as they take the necessary precautions. I don't advise it, but if the life of a masked vigilante appeals to you, know this: You do not need to fight to fight crime.

Father defends daughter with cerebral palsy: gets arrested for disorderly conduct

James Jones's daughter has cerebral palsy, and is bullied everyday on her bus to school. So James boards the bus and yells at and threatens her daughter's bullies.

He was later arrested for disorderly conduct.

Now people are discussing whether or not this is fair. Discussing whether or not he was out of place.

Well, of course not! If bullies EVER upset my daughter (RIP) I would tear their heads off. Anyone who thinks this man was out of place obviously has not had children. Because when you do have children, you know that you would do anything to protect them, even if it means threatening other children and getting arrested.

This man's daughter has cerebral palsy. He supposedly reported the bullying to the school, and they did nothing. But they should have done something even before this. What kind of f*cked in the head kids make fun of a girl, supposedly one time harassing her with a condom, who has cerebral palsy. If it was up to me I would say these kids need to be put down, because a person who could do that isn't human in my eyes. 

The parents that should be serving time are the parents of the bullies, who raised kids who had the immoral capacity to bully a defenseless girl with disabilities.

This whole case makes me sick to my stomach. Heres the video. What do you think? Was the father out of line?

The Truth

About the previous post. Many of you have asked in the comments whether or not it's true. 

It is. All of it is the truth.

But I'm not here to prove that, because it doesn't really matter if it's my truth, it matters if you make it your truth.

We define our own reality. If you don't want to believe my story, than it isn't true. Just as if you want to believe it, than it's the truth.

How I Came to Be

I will not nor will I ever reveal my true age in this blog.

I am older in years than you would ever consider by looking at me. I have traveled across the globe, meeting with wise men and sages in the most unlikely places.

My story is not unlike others you may have heard. About 20 years ago, I woke up. Bleeding from a huge gash on the side of my head, and waves crashing around my body. I woke up lost, without any recollection of who I was at all.

I found out since then that a man who may or may not have been my father was the first mate on a transatlantic shipping crew.

I traveled across the globe looking for answers. I was in Europe when I awoke, but I have traveled to many places since then and I now am preparing for my next journey across the Americas.

I have met with many sages, many men who I thought may have known me in a past life, but to no avail. But I stay with these men. They made me do chores, and sometimes they made me do nothing at all, except breathe. And when they felt I was ready to learn, they spoke. But sometimes they never spoke at all. But each and every master taught me volumes.

I learned to focus, and by focusing I learned to think. My mind was all but awakened-- the only door I could not open was the one door I've been trying to unlock. But I've learned to let that go. To make peace with the second chance I was given.

But these wise men taught me to think with rationality, to not judge without a fair outlook, to learn for myself, once again, the Right.

And so now, I learn of society once again. And it is possible you have seen me on the message boards. Because these message boards seem to me to be the sages of today. Of course, there are some inconsistencies, but dig hard enough and deep enough and you will undoubtedly find a pure white truth.

If you are looking for advice, and you are lost, consider this. Sit for a minute and just focus. When you feel relaxed, look at yourself and play out the next ten years of your life or so. Do those following ten years go where you want them to? Do you live the life you've always wanted?

If not, well, I have news for you. Those ten years happened. You have already lived those ten years. And you were miserable.

But you made a wish.

You wished that you could start over. And you sat up in bed all night with tears rolling down your face praying that you could go back, because if you could, you would do so much more in your life than you have.

And someone heard your wish. And they granted it. And this moment right now IS your second chance. Don't waste it! This is your second chance to go out and live the life you've always wanted-- because you will not get a third chance.

Everyone gets one. This is mine. And this is yours. Don't waste it.
