Why are chemically modified foods normal? Why are caged and abused cows, chickens, and pigs our natural resource of food? Why are millions of people in the US living with HIV, instead of millions being prevented from being infected? Why are women beaten everyday, instead of saved? Why are 17 year-olds getting lip injections, boob jobs, and butt implants?
Today, take a few minutes to examine what you have considered "normal" up until this point, and think of ways, even small ones, that you can improve your life, creating a new "normal." How can you start breaking the mold of what has been standard up until this point? By starting small, we will not be so easily overwhelmed and give up. Instead, we will be able to make changes that will ultimately lead to a more well-rounded self, thus leading to a more well-rounded society.
