Extracts from this document...


We are slaves to music, models and MTV "I'm unique!!!" I know it!! Are you? Yes, two people are never alike. Yet, despite our individuality we constantly become slaves to whatever is trending. So even though we are different, we crave to dress like models, use inappropriate, irrelevant words from MTV or listen to pop or rock and roll music even if you don't know what it really means to you.

Next time you take a trip to town, reflect on the clothes you are wearing, the food you are going to eat, and the things you are going to buy and the thoughts you are things about.
