We Need To Stop Playing The Blame Game

How can our country stand together if we are tearing each other apart?

We Need To Stop Playing The Blame  Game

So we have all been watching the news and we are all probably tired of what is happening in our country right now. There is violence, hate, blame, and the list goes on and on. It seems like we cannot turn on our televisions without seeing something that truly saddens our hearts. We have all been asking ourselves why? Why does all of this keep happening? Why can’t our government fix the issues that we are having in the United States?

Well imagine a United States that stopped placing blame on everyone else and started working together. This would be amazing, wouldn’t it? It seems like every time we turn on the news there is a different politician blaming another politician. One party blaming the other, one race blaming the other, one sexuality blaming the other, one religion blaming the other. So when does the blame stop and the change actually start? We can place the blame on person after person but nothing will come of this blame if we do not doing anything after it.

There is an old saying that people know, “If you’re going to talk the talk you better walk the walk” or something of that nature. We have these politicians speaking to the media every time something bad happened in our country. Maybe if everyone stopped talking to the media and sat down together and actually tried to come up with solution we might get somewhere. As someone who studies the media and is a big supporter of it we need to take a step back from it and realign our priorities of the country. As politicians you are elected by the people to help the people not sit in front of cameras and point the finger when something goes wrong. In times of crisis and hardship we look to our leaders to see how they are reacting, and if they are blaming others that is what we start to do also.

When tragedies happen in other countries the country stands together as one, in the United States we do that but to an extent. We also start blaming other people and who does that really help? Yes, we can point out that if something was done differently than this tragedy may not have happened but what go comes from that if nothing is fixed. We have got to start change because through this we can become stronger together. How does it look that have a countries that is fighting amongst themselves? Not great, so let us stand together and figure out a way to help our country. Let us stop playing the blame game and let’s do something about it.

bruce springsteen album cover born in the usa

Anyone who was born and raised in New Jersey (or anywhere really) knows of Bruce Springsteen, whether or not they like him is a whole other situation. I hope that his hundreds of classic rock songs and famous high energy performances, even in his sixties he can put on better concerts than people half his age, are at least recognizable to people of all ages. Love him or hate him (I identify with the former) you have to admit that some of his songs and interviews have inspirational quotes and lyrics.

New England Summers Are The BEST Summers

Why you should spend your next summer in New England.

Marconi Beach

Three years ago, I chose to attend college in Philadelphia, approximately 360 miles away from my small town in New Hampshire. I have learned many valuable lessons away from home, and have thoroughly enjoyed my time spent in Pennsylvania. One thing that my experience has taught me, however, is that it is absolutely impossible to beat a New England summer.

Fibonacci Sequence Examples: 7 Beautiful Instances In Nature

Nature is beautiful (and so is math). The last one will blow your mind.

Yes, the math major is doing a math-related post. What are the odds? I'll have to calculate it later. Many people have probably learned about the Fibonacci sequence in their high school math classes. However, I thought I would just refresh everyone's memories and show how math can be beautiful and apply to physical things everywhere around us with stunning examples.

For as long as I can remember, I have been listening to The Beatles. Every year, my mom would appropriately blast “Birthday” on anyone’s birthday. I knew all of the words to “Back In The U.S.S.R” by the time I was 5 (Even though I had no idea what or where the U.S.S.R was). I grew up with John, Paul, George, and Ringo instead Justin, JC, Joey, Chris and Lance (I had to google N*SYNC to remember their names). The highlight of my short life was Paul McCartney in concert twice. I’m not someone to “fangirl” but those days I fangirled hard. The music of The Beatles has gotten me through everything. Their songs have brought me more joy, peace, and comfort. I can listen to them in any situation and find what I need. Here are the best lyrics from The Beatles for every and any occasion.
