These channels are failing the spirit of conservationism and education. They are failing inspiring awe in young people. Failing much needed inspiration in a very confused and conflicted world.
These shows are failing their core values, their main purpose, which is leadership in environmentalism and cultural education. Far worse, they are failing millions of young people - millions - who look up to them.
Please join me in asking Discovery, Animal Planet, and the History Channels to stop, apologize, and correct.
I don’t know why people always make it harder for the people around them. I don’t understand why when people don’t get their way or if others don’t become what they want them to become, and it’s a fucking crime scene.
I don’t know why people can’t be happy and stop pushing their ego and their worries on things they can’t control. I don’t understand why becoming an adult for me must mean I have to be disowned from this family. I don’t understand why trying my best does not mean that it is good enough. I don’t understand why trying to be what they want me to is good enough. I don’t understand why people are imprison their own family in the cells of their narrow assumptions and meaningless traditional values.
I don’t understand why I am only 21 years old and that’s still too young to understand how hard life is. I don’t understand why I was told to be spiritual and yet you are looking at me as physical human being who is too occupied in this mundane world to understand how old my soul is. I am not always your daughter. I am lucky to be your daughter in this life. Yes. Don’t get me wrong. I care very much, but it doesn’t mean I have to do it your way.
I am not my body. I am a million years old, so why are you always choosing to be ignorant at the things you encourage me to believe?
I don’t understand why it’s always the little things you see and not the bigger picture. I don’t need the little things, but I need your love to grow in the big way. You can give me physical things and I always be grateful. More than grateful. But it’s never the same or comparable to the big love and understanding that can help me grow to be a useful human beings for others.
I am forced to be selfish. I am forced to be this way because that is what you are thinking of me. And I am tired of trying to please you because it doesn’t really make you see me for who I am. You want to be close to me, but you close your right eye and refuse to see me who I am.
I don’t understand it at all. I don’t understand what love means beyond the four letters word. I don’t understand why the world is so small when you know the universe is so big.
I can die too. I can get sick and die too. I can give up and live like vegetables and never forgive your ignorant. I can be even more selfish and close my moral heart. I can be the worst person in the world, but I am not. What else do you want from me?
I am me, and I’m sorry it’s disappointing. If I am selfish in your eyes, then I hope you will see a little better when you are tired of hurting yourself first. I am accepting all the punishment that I deserve, but I am not sorry that I am who I am now. I crawled and fell and begged and struggled all on my own at times. You don’t know because I don’t want you to worry about me. You don’t know a lot of things about me, and it’s about time that it’s not really an excuse anymore on your part. I don’t try to hide it if you were someone I could come to. Instead, you made the Berlin Wall and told me I was responsible for it.
I don’t have a hammer or a knife. They are in your hand.
