Gods aren’t necessary , wars aren’t necessary, social limitations aren’t necessary. What’s necessary is us backing the things we’ve been told since we were children, what we’ve all been taught to value when looking into the future; our dream. To work hard and make them come true. Sure, I’ll buy it. But more importantly, I’ll forget them once the pressures of staying afloat professionally and personally start stacking up, or when I hear another less than average person sing a song on a major TV network, when another president or premier tells me that it’s my duty to work for my country, or perhaps even lose my life for my country. All in the name of defending or working for something we don’t understand, and are rarely provided with the correct information to do so. Dreams are nothing if not given some actualized platform by the people who’s duty it is to provide. People to look up to, like when men were sent to the moon. That united a nation when things were not necessarily going well, but it provided children and adults alike with the goosebumps that could inspire careers and hope. If you look at the way things are going now, you’ll see that we’re teaching our children to generate false hope, to simply deal with war, to subscribe to systems which cannot be proven, to choose a discipline before the age of 18; to be less bold than someone who chooses to dream. Now we’ve almost lost the institution which enabled a generation to be bold. The one which sent people into the stars. Who are we if not curious, or even so crazy as to think we can land on a rock orbiting the earth? Yet we did. My issue is that our dreams have been put on hold to subscribe to systems which are causing harm. We deserve to dream. We deserve to see the virtues of dreaming. Nobody deserves to assume the only thing possible in life is to get by. We all deserve a rocket ship to the moon.
