We've seen the above phrase over and over again in the comment section of this blog. We didn't really care that someone has the lack of originality to post such an apathetic sentiment - at least at first.
Unfortunately, we're concerned that the poster or posters that are repeatedly inserting their apathy into sometimes thoughtful and sometimes nonsensical discussions really do represent a danger that is far more significant than we first believed. The attitude revealed in those four little words could describe what's really wrong with our city, our state, and even our country.
We all expect to "get over it." No matter how many laws are broken or how many freedoms are usurped, we'll "get over it." That's what those who would steal our freedoms count upon - our apathy and our basic unwillingness to do anything about it.
That simple sentiment shows a willingness to accept mediocrity and to eschew achievement. For those who strive to achieve, the acceptance of the mediocre or the resignation to a fate that is not within their control is unacceptable. Those who believe in accomplishment cannot and will not simply "get over it." Those who can "get over it" are condemned to a fate far worse than failure - a fate of never having set a goal, a fate of never reaching that goal, and a fate of never having truly lived to achieve their dreams.
So go ahead and continue to post your apathy and your acceptance of the mundane. You will never rise above your current position of your own accord and by your own merit. You may get bigger more powerful titles and you may even make more money... But you will never truly be in charge of your own destiny because there will always be someone else to which you are in debt - not a debt of honor but a debt of servitude. The good news is that despite the shackles that bind you and the acceptance of your own servitude... you'll get over it.
