I’m mad as hell and I’m not going to take this anymore!!!

Recently, I have been feeling quite down. I feel it difficult to do what I want to do normally. It feels like there’s a huge absence of fire in my belly. So, like most I went on YouTube searching for inspiration. Now the thing is I have done this so many times that the average inspirational video don’t work on me so I always have to go in search of videos with that extra bit of spark in it. Which in the end I always came across. This time too I found one, it was some of the greatest speeches ever in movies. I found this quite intriguing in particular. . Link is at the bottom. Check it out. I hope check the link than read because the words written could be wrong in some senses.

“I don’t have to tell you things are bad. Everybody knows things are bad. It’s a depression. Everybody’s out of work or scared of losing their job. The dollar buys a nickel’s worth, banks are going bust, shopkeepers keep a gun under the counter. Punks are running wild in the street and there’s nobody anywhere who seems to know what to do, and there’s no end to it. We know the air is unfit to breathe and our food is unfit to eat, and we sit watching our TV’s while some local newscaster tells us that today we had fifteen homicides and sixty-three violent crimes, as if that’s the way it’s supposed to be. We know things are bad – worse than bad. They’re crazy. It’s like everything everywhere is going crazy, so we don’t go out anymore. We sit in the house, and slowly the world we are living in is getting smaller, and all we say is, ‘Please, at least leave us alone in our living rooms. Let me have my toaster and my TV and my steel-belted radials and I won’t say anything. Just leave us alone.’ Well, I’m not gonna leave you alone. I want you to get mad! I don’t want you to protest. I don’t want you to riot – I don’t want you to write to your congressman because I wouldn’t know what to tell you to write. I don’t know what to do about the depression and the inflation and the Russians and the crime in the street. All I know is that first you’ve got to get mad. You’ve got to say, ‘I’m a HUMAN BEING, God damn it! My life has VALUE!’ So I want you to get up now. I want all of you to get up out of your chairs. I want you to get up right now and go to the window. Open it, and stick your head out, and yell, ‘I’M AS MAD AS HELL, AND I’M NOT GOING TO TAKE THIS ANYMORE!’ I want you to get up right now, sit up, go to your windows, open them and stick your head out and yell – ‘I’m as mad as hell and I’m not going to take this anymore!’ Things have got to change. But first, you’ve gotta get mad!… You’ve got to say, ‘I’m as mad as hell, and I’m not going to take this anymore!’ Then we’ll figure out what to do about the depression and the inflation and the oil crisis. But first get up out of your chairs, open the window, stick your head out, and yell, and say it: “I’M AS MAD AS HELL, AND I’M NOT GOING TO TAKE THIS ANYMORE!”

Tension situation arises in Aluthgama

Chaotic scenes unfolded in Aluthgama last evening with riot police using tear gas in efforts to disperse a violent mob, after ethno-religious tensions flared in the town leading to several assaults, arrests and damage to property.
Police Spokesman SSP Ajith Rohana told Daily FT that three persons had been arrested after the driver of a car carrying a Buddhist monk was allegedly assaulted, which subsequently led to an assault on the monk. The incident was sparked by a traffic accident, police sources said.

Angry mobs surrounded the police station and attacked several Muslim-owned shops in the area with stones and other objects, prompting police to use tear gas on the crowd. Buddhist monks were among the protesters, claiming that the police had failed to act against the Muslim youth being accused of attacking the monk and his driver.

Today as I walked on the road every step I took, I took them with fear. I knew that uprising of chaos is no where near my area but still I feared for the worse. Even during the chaotic 3 decades of civil that plagued the country’s peace I had never felt such a fear while walking in the road. The conflict between the Muslims and the Buddhists began from an Buddhist extremists group called the Bodu Bala Sena (BBS). But I will never accept the fact the BBS represent the majority of Buddhist nor the true Buddhist of Sri Lanka. I have best friends who are Buddhist and all they say to me is, “Sorry, its because of us.” I don’t accept that because there is no bad religion but bad people.  “He who insults other religions is a one who insults his own religion.” -Lord Buddha.

Yet, with all these uneasiness I still believe in Sri Lanka. All for one and one for all. I pray and hope this ends immediately if not eventually!

Sometimes you meet someone, and it’s so clear that the two of you, on some level belong together. As lovers, or as friends, or as family, or as something entirely different. You just work, whether you understand one another or you’re in love or you’re partners in crime. You meet these people throughout your life, out of nowhere, under the strangest circumstances, and they help you feel alive. I don’t know if that makes me believe in coincidence, or fate, or sheer blind luck, but it definitely makes me believe in something.

I am strong because I am weak. I am beautiful because I know my flaws. I am a lover because I am a fighter. I am fearless because I have been afraid. I am wise because I have been foolish. & I can laugh because I’ve known sadness.

Look up!

Technology has created a void between people when it comes to exchange of real human emotion. It annoys me every time when someone takes out his/her phone just to check on Facebook, twitter, etc when he/she hangout with friends. It’s just sad and this video is just shows what you are missing. Virtually you may be connected to millions of people around the world but in reality you are just a person alone holding a phone in your hand while others around you is enjoying reality and living life like its suppose to be lived. Full credits to the people behind this the making of this.

 

‘Look Up’ is a lesson taught to us through a love story, in a world where we continue to find ways to make it easier for us to connect with one another, but always results in us spending more time alone.

1. The person who cares less has all the power. Nobody wants to be the one who’s more interested.

2. Because we want to show how cavalier and blasé we can be to the other person, little psychological games like ‘Intentionally Take Hours Or Days To Text Back’ will happen. They aren’t fun.

3. A person being carefree because they have zero interest in you looks exactly like a person being carefree because they think you’re amazing & are making a conscious effort to play it cool. Good luck deciphering between the two.

4. Making phone calls is a dying art. Chances are, most of your relationship’s communication will happen via text, which is the most detached, impersonal form of interaction. Get familiar with those emoticon options.

5. Set plans are dead. People have options and up-to-the-minute updates on…

8 types of friends you will have.

I got this email from my friend stating the type of friends one would have. I personally have at least one that fits in to each of these types. Thought I might share this.

1. A Loyal Best Friend
This is the kind of friend who lets you be a hot mess and knows all of your deepest and darkest secrets, but still loves you all the same.

2. A Fearless Adventurer.
We all need an adventurous friend who will pull us out of our shells and introduce us to new ideas, cultures, philosophies, and activities.

3. A Brutally Honest Confidant.
Friends are supposed to be honest with each other. If you find someone who is brutally honest with you (in a constructive way), then hold on to this person! People like that are hard to come by these days.

4. A Wise Mentor.
We all need a friend who inspires us to be better people without making us feel inadequate. Plus, being around such a person will challenge us to better ourselves every day.

5. A Friend From a Different Culture.
If everyone had a friend from a different culture, the world would be a much better place. Being in a cross-cultural friendship allows you to explore customs, values, and traditions outside of your own culture.

6. A Polar Opposite.
Instead of constantly surrounding yourself with like-minded people, try to break out of your comfort zone and befriend people who hold opposing views. They will help open your eyes to different world views and you’ll learn to accept people who don’t see the world exactly the way you see it.

7. A Friendly Neighbor.
These days, a lot of people don’t know their own neighbors. It’s a shame, because some neighbors can be the nicest and most helpful people ever.

8. A Work Pal.
Your work pal doesn’t have to be your best friend outside of work. They just need to be someone you click with on some level, and if you two hit it off exceptionally well, you can always start hanging out with them outside of the office.

Where is the price tag?

“With money you can buy a house, but not a home
With money you can buy a clock, but not time
With money you can buy a bed, but not sleep
With money you can buy a book, but not knowledge
With money you can buy a doctor, but not good health
With money you can buy a position, but not respect
With money you can buy blood, but not life
With money you can buy sex, but not love.”

 

Why does a price exist? The answer is obvious, to display the value of an item. But, the irony is things that does not have a price tag is more valuable than something that actually has one. I think that a price tag is just a limitation of a thing’s value. Which is why, some things are priceless and has no price tag. Many people tend to believe that if he/she has wealth,  that person could do anything. Well, they are most definitely wrong beyond any parameters. There is just so many things that one needs to be content in their lives. For instance, the amazing days you spent in your childhood, the butterflies in your stomach on your first date, the happiness of meeting your old friends, graduating and witnessing the smile on your parents faces and many more are the little elements in life that create bigger memories. Just think what are you going to remember in your final days, a good cheese hamburger or the memories of our loved ones.

Money won’t satisfy your life, happiness does.
