An Online Journal.
I’m coming back from my Tumblr absence and will attempt to blog again. Sometime’s I feel too strongly and passionately about something that writing it down makes it even harder to express myself, but I will try my best to fill my blog with meaningful words, my artwork, and other mildly interesting things.
To young Canadians: All my life I have worked to make things better. Hope and optimism have defined my political career, and I continue to be hopeful and optimistic about Canada. Young people have been a great source of inspiration for me. I have met and talked with so many of you about your dreams, your frustrations, and your ideas for change. More and more, you are engaging in politics because you want to change things for the better. Many of you have placed your trust in our party. As my time in political life draws to a close I want to share with you my belief in your power to change this country and this world. There are great challenges before you, from the overwhelming nature of climate change to the unfairness of an economy that excludes so many from our collective wealth, and the changes necessary to build a more inclusive and generous Canada. I believe in you. Your energy, your vision, your passion for justice are exactly what this country needs today. You need to be at the heart of our economy, our political life, and our plans for the present and the future.
After waking up yesterday morning and seeing the miles of ‘R.I.P. Ryan Dunn’ status’s on facebook, I obviously googled articles to find out what happened.
As tragic and sad it is that he died, it just really makes me angry. The fact that no one is acknowledging the fact he was clearly wasted and because of that, three people died.
I don’t care who you are, if you drink and drive- risking other peoples lives, not just your own, you lose so much respect from me.
It’s a stupid thing to do, I don’t get why everyone is so shocked.
Also, the fact that no one has even mentioned the other people who have died in the accident seems pretty heartless. That they will be remembered by society not by who they were and what they’ve done, but by the people that died in Ryan Dunn’s accident.
I’m not heartless, and I do find it very sad, but shit happens when you do dumb things.
