Now, as for the comment about hurting feelings, I have to say that even when I do stupid things online, like comment about something that could be hurtful, I do feel some remorse. As I should. Even though you will never meet 99.99999% (maybe even 100) of the people on line, you should still treat them with dignity and respect, right? (well, unless the really deserve otherwise)
OK, that is off topic. Sorry.

Thanks for the post.
I agree with you in that getting mad will not solve our problems. After all, an eye for an eye only makes the world blind.
But this isn't about a solution to a problem.
This is about recognizing there is a problem.
Getting mad, as you said, is a great motivator, and that's what i think we need. Too many people are apathetic to the world around them. Millions are starving? So what?
This isn't good enough anymore.
I just think were leaving it too late to make a change.
