Oscar Winners thank Directors More than God
Growing up, I was taught that hard work and dedication will be acknowledged and rewarded. That God is capable of anything, and though we might not always be in a state of bliss and happiness, he has a plan for us. As a child, I was programmed to always look to God for answers, and to remember to thank him for my blessings. It is irrelevant which religion is follow, or believe in, because they all believe that God is all mighty, and all powerful. With the world’s largest eight religions occupying 90% of the population, you’d think that God would play a big role in our lives. It was surprising to find out that during this past week’s 87th Oscar Ceremony, God was not thanked the most during acceptance speeches, and that he came in sixth place, with only nineteen mentions! These actors and actresses, are among the most privileged in the world. Not to say that they aren’t talented, or hard working, but god has blessed them enough to become successful in this ever competitive world. In my opinion, with advances in technology and science, it has become easy for people to justify the worlds composition and our nature, through these study’s, instead of having faith in a higher power. I don’t blame them, its human nature to believe what we see, and it’s difficult to understand something that’s only ever spoken of and not proved. However, what science can’t tell us is why these things happen. Why am I able to attend university, while children starve around the world? Why do good people die? Religion, too many people, including myself, is a way to surrender yourself to a higher power, to believe that everything happens for a reason, and they God does have a plan for us. Mankind, (no matter how rich and powerful), can’t alter our fates.
