Make Way For The Positive Day
London - the Queens Diamond Jubilee celebration horses procession, waiting eagerly to begin their stroll. There was no shortage of anti-monarchy comments and protests during the 4 day affair. But whether you oppose the entire notion or not, there was something there that everyone should appreciate. For a city rich in history, culture and customs, it was truly inspiring to be surrounded by an atmosphere of pride, joy and unity. In a turbulent time of financial turmoil where social responsibilty has taken a back-seat, it is these moments which provide us with the comfort in knowing that we will overcome these struggles, because we aren’t alone. Remember what our fore-fathers have quoted for generations, ‘this too shall pass’. And if it doesn’t, at least we’re all caught in the same shit-storm together.

This urge to be different to ‘fit in’ has enabled our generation to constantly think of the next new thing, but is it also plaguing it? By focusing on the next success have we lost our basic need to enjoy the moment? Fun isn’t fun if it can’t be documented on twitter, or captured on instagram. I cannot lie and say that I am not at the forefront of this mayhem, but at least I am aware of the danger it poses to our ‘carefree youth’.
