At the start of April 2013, I made four posts on my Twitter account (@adam13goodwin) about four observations in the world that I thought were unjust. I continue this list on this blog post.
- #shouldnotbe – People walk by a fellow member of the Human Race who has taken a fall on the sidewalk;
- #shouldnotbe Sitting is now the new smoking
- #shouldnotbe Physical inactivity now costing society more than smoking. #TakeTheActivePledge at www.okanaganathlete.com
#shouldnotbe Many children can no longer handwrite because they have lost fine motor function due to lost of unstructured play. #obesity [visit www.okanaganathlete.com to see how I am combating this] #shouldnotbe Most #introvert children are told to be “more outgoing.” They interpret this as not being good enough. #adults #shouldnotbe The old interpretation of the word “bride” meant “to cook.” #gender #sex #men #women #shouldnotbe Just read: 90% of gay, lesbian, bisexual, transgender people were harassed in high school due to their sexual orientation.
Now, it is your turn. Have you observed something in your day-to-day that #shouldnotbe (should not be). Please comment or send them to me, and I will include them in the next update!
May also wish to refer to my post Some of our enemies, written in mid-April, that discusses similar topics.
I welcome and strive to get your feedback and own thoughts. Feel free to comment below or connect with me via social media.
