Why is being gay or their union in marriage such a big deal to people? Why is the dictionary meaning of marriage being put at stake? Doesn’t marriage to most people mean a union of two people wanting to spend their lives together? Even if man and woman are put into the equation why is anything new or out of the routine so hard for people to accept? Weren’t single parent homes unthinkable, or inter-racial marriages taboo. Can’t people be more educated, informed and realistic about life, given the day and age.
Do public figures have a responsibility towards the society. If they do, then how much responsibility should they shoulder? A president wants to hold on to his blackberry. As an individual I think a person in free country should be allowed to. There are security risks, understandably. Then how much of a free country is this? Having said that, does this president owe it to his society to do the right thing and give up on his right to information and technology? How much can we ask of these individuals who happen to be public figures to mould themselves because they have a responsibilty to the society that makes them celebrities?
Have people completely forgotten to have conversations, communicate? I often see people stuck to their cell phones, iphones, blackberries, to communicate I suppose. I write out new year cards every year. I have a minimum list of 50 people that I send cards to. I don’t remember the last time I got a card back. I don’t even get acknowledgements for most of them. Why is communication becoming harder for people these days? What ever has happened to face to face conversations?
