Tag seen in a subway entrance, in Chicago
For a few months now, I have tried to watch the news as little as possible. As I saw on a Facebook post a few days ago, I want to keep myself informed, but it is interferring with my mental well-being.
Just today, all we hear about is the tragic events in Nice, Baton Rouge and in Turkey… It has to be reported, I am not complaining about that. But it depresses me to wake up every morning, wondering what and where the new tragedy will be.
What is so wrong with this world?
It might sound dramatic, but one of the main reasons I don’t have kids, and am not planin on having any, is that I truly believe I wouldn’t leave them in a better world than the one I was born in.
Sad event after sad event, we bring security to freakish levels, taking liberty away from the majority of people. The mass pays for the very few who are a threat, and let’s be honest, those bad-minded people are so creative and focused, that any security measure we put in place, they’ll find a way to go around…
I don’t feel negative as I write these words, just realistic. Mankind is going down the slope..
I have ideas about how to make the world a better place, but I don’t think we have solutions to stop those who want to destroy it.
I truly hope things will turn around. One good action at a time. I’m not naive enough to believe in world peace for the moment. But I hope we can just evolve a little, and stop the madness that is spreading like a plague…
