STANDING POWER: WHAT DOES THE FUTURE HOLD FOR AMERICA

Low Angle View of Flag Against Blue Sky

“The shift has caused conflict, but will it last?”


With all the social issues that have been popping up in the news recently, you have to ask yourself the question. Does America have standing power over the long haul? Because people are getting real antsy regarding the lack of jobs and their lost of freedoms. Not to mention these different regions are preaching sentiments of the past that could only hurt America not help. So what does the future hold for the country? In my opinion, I think that America is just fine, it’s just a rough patch we’re going through right now. But if it is, what is the reason, and when will it end? Or, on the other hand, maybe we just see more today than the past. That could be another reason it seems we’re heading downhill. Whatever it is, it has people off the rails.

One main reason, like I said above is because of the availability of the news in society. In the past, we didn’t have 24 hour news cycles that never seemed to never end. And when there was breaking news, the news really was breaking. Now, if the president is wearing an article of clothing we don’t like it becomes breaking. administration, articles, bankThe internet does not help the situation either; with social media, everything seems so much more worse than it is in real life. If you didn’t know any better you would think that we are on the brink of a major catastrophe. Then when something does happen that is bad, we start to really panic. Because all it does is further validates what we thought was really going in society. But is the news media the only aspect of society that makes you question its longevity.

What about the idea that jobs that have long been the source of America infrastructure have left and it seems like nothing is replacing it. We have so many people in America who only knew the factories, yet now what are they left with since everything is leaving. What are they left to do? Well, if they would educate themselves, there is a lot of money to be made in our country. adult, blur, booksAnd the money lies in this new tech space, yet so many don’t know how to access such information. The answer is to Google, Facebook, Instagram, Yahoo, or YouTube it. Look up information and try to put yourself in the know. But this is tough when the status quo has been the same for so long. Most people get up and work as if there will be a check for them every two weeks. Only problem is that this is not always the case. Sometimes you have to learn new things to keep you abreast of every change in time.

Which brings me to the last reason I think America is spiraling. We need to jump on with this new wave instead of rekindling all flames. American citizens are like someone looking up to see how someone who they used to date is doing. When you should be moving forward in life instead of trying to check on old flames. One U.s. Dollar Beside 100 Philippine PesosThere is a reason it ended, just leave it in the past. And that in the end, is a problem in America. We think by heading backward we can move forward. The problem with that is that we are not in the early to mid 1900’s. This is a global economy, and in order to thrive you have to find your place in this space. Other emerging nations are starting to make their come up and if America does not shift ourselves, we might be left lagging behind. China has already surpassed our economy as number one in the world. So it’s up to us to not only be the change, but make the change as well.

I am from Racine, Wisconsin where I was raised until I graduated high school back in the year 2006. That entire time growing up in my mother's house, I was a student athlete. My goal was to embark on a general business career or athletics. But injuries through sports stopped a sports path, so I decided upon business with a focus in marketing. While attending undergraduate school at University of Wisconsin-Parkside, I began to write screenplays in my senior year. At first it was for fun, but I quickly learned writing allow me to transfer negative energy into characters I created. This led to a decrease in depressing mood swings, which in turn boosted my quality of life. After undergraduate school in May of 2011, I move to New York City for graduate school. While pursuing my MBA, I continued to write screenplays, but always wanted to write novels as well. I finished graduate school back in the year 2014, but wrote screenplays until I began thinking of my first short film, first First Day Fears. While finishing my fifth feature length screenplay, I started to write my first novel this year. So far, I have finished my first short film and working on my next one (Freedomless Speech), and recently self published my first novel (The Boy Who Could Talk To God) and short stories book (Faheem Jackson Short Story Collection Volume 1). My feature length screenplays have been put on temporary hold to finish my short films and books, but I am making good progress on my sixth feature length screenplay. With year 2017 ending, I am currently writing my novel Precinct 86 and Faheem Jackson Short Story Collection Vol. 2. I have started teaching myself photography since 2018, along with my videography, podcast later on, and more research for my filmmaking.
