It’s Matt – I was watching TV the other night and became real annoyed with how TV has changed. It wasn’t that soap operas were over, or the crime shows were cancelled – all of which I could really care less about. It was the view of how something so special has changed. It is amazing that just in a few years something so innocent has become so degraded. Over the last couple of years especially just recently or at least by the other night it had all just fallen through the floor. Why is it that we have become a society of degrading and foul views.
Maybe by now I have drawn attention to the curious mind? Maybe by now you are wondering what was it that was so pure, and has now become the peak of lost innocence?
Well did you watch the MTV Movie Awards Sunday? I turned it off almost before it even began. But I read in the news yesterday the a shining star broke free of the social norm – Reese Witherspoon. She spoke while accepting the MTV Generation Award for her career in Hollywood. And it actually surprised me! These are excerpts of what she said:

“I get it, girls, that it’s cool to be a bad girl,”
“But it is possible to make it in Hollywood without doing a reality show. When I came up in this business, if you made a sex tape, you were embarrassed and you hid it under your bed.”
Are you listening Kim? Paris?
“And if you took naked pictures of yourself on your cell phone, you hide your face, people!”
“Hide your face!”
“So, for all the girls out there, it’s totally possible to be a good girl,”
“I’m going to try to make it cool.”
“I had my first baby when I was 23, so I’ve always been choosing roles knowing that I have a daughter and I have a responsibility to her and to the world to be representing women of strength,”
“These are the women I know in life. I think it’s a natural extension of parenthood for you to feel like you’re responsible for the worlds you create, whether they be silly or serious. I think you are responsible for the art you put in the world.”

Maybe I will have to force myself to watch Legally Blond just to support her. Just as the social norm in Hollywood most likely will shun her, it is up to those who also agree with her to go out of our way to support the cause of what is pure.
