COME ON AMERICA

 

America yet again you have earned my disdain. While leaving the hardware store today I saw a handicapped guy all alone trying to fix his chair. At the hardware store, the epicenter of handymen and everyone just drove by as this pathetic (Not to insult the guy but he obviously needed help in a very sad way) dude tried to get out of his chair and fix his own wheel.  It was hot as shit, the sun is beating on this guy, he cant even speak, hold up his head or function is any way I would call normal. This guy makes you thank god or whatever deity you believe in that you did not get his lot in life.

So I get out of my car go over and fix his chair. His crooked smile was heart warming. His skinny weak hands tried their best to shake my hand in thanks. I offered to escort him across town in case the wheel messed up again, but his little computer said he was fine. He cant even speak on his own America and you drove by FUCK YOU. I then returned to my car, drove to a gas station, got him a fiji water, went back and hunted that guy down. He was making good time and I gave him the water because I had no idea how long he was trying to fix his wheel in the sun. It is hot in Virginia today.

America this has been the worst year of my life. The woman I love left me for a guy you could find at any sports bar. She added insult to injury by communicating that message to me in a text. I also broke my hand this year making my normal jobs in construction impossible to work because now my hand is more like the guy in scary movie and it hurts like shit every minute of everyday. I could not work, pay my medical bills and bottomed out at 2.95 in my checking account. I was also mauled by a dog, this year, and have had a nightmare every night for the past 158 days since she left me. But who is counting right? I am sleep deprived wounded, heartbroken, and alienated from my family and home. This is not a pity party I just want to illustrate that if anyone has an excuse to be in a bad mood, ignore the world or go on a shooting rampage it is this guy right here writing for you.

But I’m better then that. I’m Taylor mother fucking Oceans, I will always help people and I never give up no matter the odds. I have rallied over the past months and now make 1,000 a week, running my own media and design company. My patent is about to be approved by the EPA and I’m going to be so rich I think I’m going to start my own country. None of you are invited. That is how real Americas rally.

FUCK ALL OF YOU FOR DRIVING BY THIS AMERICAN WHO NEEDED HELP. NEXT TIME GET YOU HEAD OUT OF YOU ASS, PUT DOWN THE SMART PHONE, AND DO SOMETHING USEFUL WITH YOUR LIVES EVEN IF IT IS JUST GIVING FIVE MINUTES TO A CRIPPLE AND FIX HIS CHAIR. WHY IS IT SO HARD FOR US TO BE HUMAN?

Long Live the Writers

Oceans

 I’ve done horrible things in my life. But I have changed. You can too. You have the power.

    • I will have to check out that movie. But that movie quote and my writing were not just for America they were for the world. America is our metaphor. The English kidnapped the slaves and brought them here, jamaca and a hundred other places. The French and the Dutch also benefited. But then you have the serfs of Russia, the concentration camps the English set up during the boer wars. The rape of Nanjing, Holicost, Crusades, Golden Apples, and atila the Hun. The Visigoths sack of rome, the roman sake of Carthage. The Roman enslavement of the Visigoths. Egypt and the Jews, and back to Kane abd Able. All of humanity has blood on its hands. And it is time we changed as a people not a country, race, or religion. BE HUMAN

  1. By leaving your example for the man in the wheel chair, you set up a chain reaction T. A good chain reaction. We can only change ourselves and hope the world will follow. Hope you got your second book published.
    Best,….r

  2. Someone did stop…and it was YOU. Never expect to find compassion in every human it won’t happen but there are millions of people who would have done the same thing. Your glimpse into this unfortunate man’s window of struggle only showed that in those minutes of time YOU were that soul who was moved enough to help. Do not give up on a nation of people, otherwise we will indeed end up with only the uncaring ‘whats in it for me’ waste’s of humanity.

  3. Title caught my eye.

    Story caught my heart.

    Thank you for helping. I would have done the same.

    Just bought your book.

    Thank you for helping that poor soul.

  4. I get it. One cannot resolve all. find what means the most to you that can empower all for a change for the better. pursue it and have faith and strength in God you will prevail. Do not set your own timetable, as you alone are not in control of all.

  5. Taylor, you are a compassionate soul and a survivor. These two usually go hand in hand. It breaks my heart hearing about how the guy in the wheelchair was left like that. I have a variation of muscular dystrophy which responds to treatment but I have friends in this scenario and also a friend with MND. They can get out and about and do things but there are times when things go wrong and the community needs to step in so people with disabilities and health issues can still get out and leave the house and make the most of a difficult situation.
