The world is so different from different people’s points of view. Lets look at Black Friday. I’ll go into detail of my efforts later, but I want to focus on my observance. I’ve done “the Black Friday” thing for 3 years now. This year seemed extremely quiet compared to years past. The lines at the retailers last year seemed to overshadow this year by quite a bit. Even in the large retail outlets, I was in and out in under 10 minutes.
It makes you wonder in a period of quiet and serenity, what kind of freaks and monsters lined up outside of a Wal-Mart in Valley Stream NY and literally killed an employee, and for what? a TV? a computer? What is worth more than someone’s life inside a Wal-Mart? Or any store for that matter. And Wal-Mart knows of the chaos that can ensue.. I know! I worked there for a year. Why haven’t they jumped on the bandwagon and organized themselves. Nobody was trampled at Best Buy when I lined up last year. I didn’t see anybody trampled at Circuit City this year either!
Little did I know that there was such horror and terror happening just outside of my peaceful bubble.. Sharing stories with complete strangers of varying race, religion, background and interests. Offering others beside me to step forward before I too make my entrance. Excuse me.. Please.. Thank you.. I really think that the world is a great place, though the Riftrou make it appear to be a cruel sad place.. You know.. The ones who “Ruin It For The Rest Of Us”
