Wise, Witty, and Wacky Wednesday

Standard

As of last night I didn’t have any idea of what I was going to post, and then Lesann a new friend from the Write Campaign posted a video of a flash mob. I love flash mobs,for a moment people are smiling and happy, people are connected and in person!
I think I read too much into flash mobs- but as a writer I probably read too much into just about everything! I see potential futures, and a hundred reason why something came about in the first place, and frequently this causes trouble- although I have learned to keep most of the crazy in my head or on paper.
Back to flash mobs- to me they are hope. They represent the idea that we can get along, that we can do good things just for the sake of doing them, and that maybe our future isn’t so bleak after all.
When you see how infectious flash mobs are- from the smiling faces in the crowd watching, to the videos going viral, to people from all over the world creating their own- to me it shows that if enough people care and understand what to do we can make amazing changes.

Have you ever been a part of a flash mob? Would you join one? Do you have a great idea for a flash mob?
