Instincts

“The issues that you are fighting for are always forgotten, because the body swells up until it fills the universe, and even when you are not paralyzed by fright or screaming with pain, life is a moment-to-moment struggle against hunger or cold or sleeplessness, against a sour stomach or an aching tooth.”

That really sums up life as a race. Seriously though, if you take away the TV, the microwave, the wardrobe you just purchased, our medical professionals, and throw up into the wild, that sums it up. Even with it, these are the basic animalistic instincts we all have. We feed ourselves when we are hungry, we dress warm when it gets cold, and we fight off our pain. But put us in the wild, and in the end, it doesn’t matter if you are fighting for equal rights, children in Africa, or lobbying for you gun back. When it comes down to it, we take care of ourselves first and foremost, we survive, and then we fight for an outside cause.

About lbannister117

I’m the outdoorsy kind of girl, one of those rugged beasts. Try hard, play hard, take no prisoners kind of people. I have the intelligence, and the feminism, but yet I'm still the hard-core ‘one of the guys’ kind of girl. I enjoy the company and views of others, and love having in depth conversations about everything under the sun, whether it be politics, the weather, an event in history, the news, or simply a good story.
