Going Viral [Daily Prompt: Viral]

The New York Times is going to feature your blog on its home page, and you’ve been asked to publish a new post — it’ll be the first thing tens of thousands of new readers see. Write it.  Photographers, artists, poets: show us FIRST.

Life is New York seems like the American Dream.  People travel from all over the world just to see the famous skylines and all the attractions advertised on TV.  All the people who are not residents of New York or its 5 boroughs think so highly of the state.  Don’t get me wrong, New York is full of opportunity and many people have created great lives here.  But traveling outside of New York there is a noticeable difference in the people.

Every wonder why the New Yorker is so rude by default.  Why can’t you just say thank you?  Why can’t you help someone if they have fallen or were in trouble?  New Yorkers are always in a hurry and once they arrive they are complaining about something so irrelevant to life in the big scheme of things.

My point is here, let’s give New York a better reputation.  Treat our fellow human beings with respect, be polite, helpful and extend the olive branch especially to those in need.  Figure out what we can do as a team to make this beautiful innovative state a nicer place to be not just a visual attraction.

Sometimes the small things that we feel is insignificant are really the only things that need to go Viral.  If we aimed our focus on how we treat each other and interact with each other than we may open the doors to opportunities that we would have never dreamed were possible.

Choose wisely of the topics you want to go Viral.  What is it that you want your peers to learn from what you are putting out?  Don’t waste time being selfish and thinking only of your own personal wants because when we all do that, we become divided and nothing great can be accomplished without unity.  Strength lies in numbers and in heart.  Let us beat on the same drum.
