It’s become a common response to the noise and anger of society to pretend that you don’t care. If you care, you’re a fool.
But perhaps all of that noise and anger is a response to a seemingly uncaring world. It just might be one of those Catch-22 things.
We need to end the cycle.
We need people to be brave enough to show that they care. We need to make it cool again to care.
When I was a kid, there was a cartoon and whole toy merchandising line called the Care Bears. It was simply bears who cared, and they made it seem fantastically cool.
Thinking about that concept through a modern, 21st century lens, I admit it sounds silly. But that’s because it’s not normal anymore to openly care.
I think that should change. I think it should be cool again, to show that you care.
