Hope is to believe in something we want to believe to be true. Hope comes from the state of mind of fighting towards something wanted. What threatens hope would be the thought of failure or being impossible. Hope would be stored by not giving up on what's be achieved, to not go backwards but frontwards. What gives me hope to go on is my studies, family, and mentality of becoming someone very important in life and have great earnings because I want to get out the situation I'm living in now and also to give back to my parents and family. Making it into a prestige four year university is one of my greatest hopes.

In the article, " The Ones Who Walk Away from Omelas," by Ursula Le Guin, Guin depicts a society into a perfect utopia who blinds the community from the outside reality and gives false justification to cover up the inhumane treatment or injustice happening outside Omelas. Guin refers the child in the basement as if it's an animal in display much like the zoo. The child in the basement depicts the cruel reality of an inhumane society, or a systemic society, but ignored by the cruelly brainwashed society. The people who leave Omelas are the ones who realize the terrible truth about Omelas, the lies that were taught to them since there were little kids, the ones who outstretched the box that kept them in place, the ones who broke the rules. Omelas and the society I live in today are no different from each other, how you ask? The society we live in today doesn't allow us outstretch our thinking, we can't be curious as they say. Curiosity is a crime for today's society, those who tend to think outside the box are usually portrayed as nerds, weirdos, and sometimes criminals. That's how F***** up society is, all of a sudden society becomes threaten by some intellectual being. Nevertheless, we do have families, kids, and veterans out in the streets dying of starvation, and yet we have a so called "rights". Now lets take a moment and think next time we ask the same question, how?

Why do I think social justice is important? I believe social justice is tremendously important because with social justice we could have diversity, which is very suitable for young adults and especially children in this era. With social justice, children will be more suitable of stretching the box, box that's made by big cooperation to blind and manipulate us for their own purpose, box that is made to stay, therefore I stand with social justice because I believe social justice should be applied in every matter to give hope, to give an opportunity. Social justice does not exist now, it's hidden by the means of blinding everyone. The on going issue in today's date is racism, racism is a pretty complex topic, people have to understand that racism has been going on for a long period of time, it's not new, but it's more seen because of technology, video cameras or phones are in the hands of mostly everyone. As I said racism won't be too much of an problem if social justice takes place, but at the meantime, get up and fight racism and use social justice, it's a start. In present day we have too much controversy about the new president of the United States, Donald Trump, Trump bases on racism, hatred, and inequality, in my opinion. I'm not afraid of him, I'm afraid of all America, why? Well, I see America looking up to a so-called "leader", who's mindset based on racism, hatred, and inequality, but truth being said, we're all blind by what's really behind Trump, Trump is a puppet for the big one, he's playing his role. We're blind by the media from what's truly out there, the perpetrators, the 1%. Social Justice needs to take place.

In the TED Talk, "How to Find Work You Love," by Scott Dinsmore, Dinsmore argues to not have a job you'll be miserable but to have passion and enjoy a job that matters and then get started doing it. Dinsmore explained his personal view towards a job he had but was very miserable. He argued anger and frustration are some key factors feelings when you're doing something you're not passionate about. Quit the job and work on what's your passion. I reflect on Dinsmore's argument because I would often get incensed for the same reason of doing something I don't enjoy. but the thing is that I can't change jobs so, therefore, I'll be having this job till I get a career. So don't just look for a job well played, short hours, but look for a job that is a hobby or create a hobby or something you're passionate about.

In the TED talk, "The Surprising Science of Happiness," by Dan Gilbert, Gilbert argues in the idea of we'll be miserable if not getting what's wanted. I can reflect on Gilbert's argument, this situation happens to every human being, for instance, I would be in a really bad mood and refuse to talk when I get denied from something I've wanted. When I feel extremely uncomfortable I start making up these ideas of being beatific when not having what's wanted as Gilbert mentioned in his speech and he also mentioned natural happiness. In my circumstance, natural happiness is very satisfying because it's a true feeling towards something real such as a thing I always wanted. The truth about happiness would be that happiness plays an important role for I because it focuses on the positive side of my uncertainty and drives me away from my depressive side or negative side. Truth be told, happiness would be for the better good, though, it challenges the idea of we'll be miserable if not getting what's wanted.

Happiness it's not just a stimulant or antidote but a gateway to heaven, nevertheless of being described as a drug it's a solution towards being happy.

The power of passion and perseverance may lead to success in the near future. In having the passion for a special thing, is to be passionate about doing what you love doing. Passion makes everything much easier because it can be applied in a hobby or job, depending on the situation, that job or hobby might be something you like and so by being passionate about it, therefore you will be very successful. You're not going to be like the others of not liking their job and so they don't even try and therefore they get fired. Perseverance is a huge skill needed in order to be successful in what you're doing no matter what gets in the way. Perseverance gives a stronger attitude to attack what's being pursued.
