“If we want to reach real peace in this world, we should start educating children.”
I’m caught in between. I’m stuck in this strange middle place, where the ground is blanketed in a think gray fog and I can’t see two steps in front of me or three steps behind. The action of a step forward is when I’m not really there at all. Stepping back is being born again. But still, I’m not there. These actions are the decisions, and ultimately the decision is made quickly. I’m afraid to disappear completely if I don’t set a path soon; disappear into the fog that has consumed so many lives before me, dragging them down into nameless depths, never to resurface. I’m stuck between pursuing a career and defying society and doing something great. Since coming to university, I’ve become so much more aware of the world around me and all the problems associated within it. It’s almost an oxymoron. University is supposed to be setting me up for this great career that I’m going have, but instead it’s leading me to want to make drastic changes to the world we live in. Is changing the world a career? A career is defined as: a person’s progress or general course of action through life or through a phase of life. I think Gandhi made a career out of changing the world, so maybe I can too.
