I'm pretty convinced that I've found a cause in life. I understand now why I survived all those years of depression and years wishing I had never existed. I'm going to live long enough to see change in this world. I want to live to see a revolution, where atheism is the norm, where science and free, well educated and informed thought is not punished or brushed away for the sake of convenience lies, but celebrated as a fundamental way of progress and tolerance. Where humanity isn't divided by hate but united by acceptance, where the very idea of human decency without the forced moral obligation of a fictional deity isn't radical, but seen as the right thing to do. I'm alive because I want to see injustice punished, intolerance ended, and for democracy to rule supreme, because this is a country for the people, by the people, and we the people will not be divided and overthrown by those few elite that see fit to oppress and destroy for their own personal short-term gain.
