Too Young To Die

Too Young to Die

I just finished watching this movie. The fact that it eerily reflects much of my early childhood and teenage years (some of it, by no means all of it), only added to my increasingly withdrawn and horrified state of mind while watching it.

It is true, we all have the ability to make choices about our lives (mentally handicapped children, are, of course, exempt), even as children, teenagers and young adults. Yes, it is true that the human mind does not stop developing until the age of 25 or so. Yet, given even the worst of circumstances (believe me, I have been party to the reality of torture, sexual abuse, physical & psychological abuse and even the factual threat of death, many times as a child, teenager, and young adult), yet I always made the choice to conquer my foes and relentlessly keep searching for a better quality of life. All the while, trying to keep mental disease that was genetically passed on to me in check.

Still, we are not all equal when it comes to our capacity to survive and make the correct choices. So, at what point do we as a society of progressive and highly intellectual thinkers & doers, decide that enough is enough and pull our heads out of whoever’s ass we ar so far up that we can no longer smell our world without the stench of human shit, or hear it without the deafening sounds of zombified media coverage, or see it without wearing our specialized rose-colored, glasses, given to us at birth?

When, how, who, is going to finally throw away the glasses, switch off the zombified media and pull their head out of Geppetto’s asshole?

This movie, while a fictionalized version of true events, is an accurate portrayal of real life for many children and teenagers who have been thrown away by family and by society.

Like Anne Frank wrote…good thing no one has to wait to start making the world a better place.
