You then have the snorkelers. These are the friends who want to go deep, but don’t have the emotional capacity to carry the pressure and weight. If they make an attempt, they either drown or are forced to go back to the surface for oxygen.
Finally, let’s talk about the deep sea divers. These are the people who stay with you through storms and violent waters, and they aren’t afraid to dive to the darkest parts of the ocean floor: they stay with you, in the water, through the worst times. They aren’t afraid to call out your bullshit. They’re the people who are there for you no matter what happens.
We all need the third type of people in our lives.
here’s my two cents on the ice bucket challenge, for the people that are thinking it’s stupid or just for attention yes it is both. yes it makes you look stupid and yes it is for attention. but looking stupid for a good cause never hurt anyone, people are out there doing more stupid things than dumping a bucket of ice on themselves. the whole point of this was for awareness, awareness that would draw in possible donations for research and so forth. this challenge has gotten people to talk about this, and the chatter on this disease is trending on all platforms which is a good thing as ALS can affect anyone. this is just my opinion but before this ice bucket challenge became popular, a good percentage of the people out there probably didn’t know what this disease was about, but now you know therefore goal achieved. awareness. that is all.
side note: this business about CA fining people for doing this challenge, what debbie-downers ruining what was meant to for a good cause. go fine people for taking long showers or full on bathes, that shiz wastes more water than a bucket of ice/water.
90% of the time all i ask for is effort
