I almost regret watching that ... but really, it's good to see the things we'd rather turn a blind eye to. Human's are capable of some pretty horrific things, especially to those species who are almost, if not completely defenseless and 110% innocent.

I recall long ago, (love him, hate him) Whitley Strieber make references to "The justice of this world". Mr. justice is rounding the sun just now, toward the third planet from, and something from Hell This Way Comes. There are certain populations of people on this earth, whos names are on that thing, and it will be taking names, and taking no prisoners.

How can we make it any better? How can we make the pain stop?
We are part of the problem. We must be a part of the solution.
No we can't change the world over, but we can change ourselves. Small actions to reduce the pain we see.
Start developing sustainable communities. Heck, just start with two tomato plants on your deck and work from there.
Get a solar panel, try out different methods to reduce your footprint. Give away the junk in your closet.
Go hug an elderly person, tell everyone you love that you do, adopt a dog or cat r hamster or goat from a shelter.
Go plant a tree.
No, these actions alone might not change the world, but if one out of every four on the planet did them, we would BE a revolution.

I loved Michael Jackson, he was INNOCENT. His death hit me like a truck, I was waylaid for days. Maybe his spirit is working to help matters from the side of Light.

Thank you for starting this thread. It is much needed and we do need to keep being reminded of all the atrocities that happens everyday. I felt like Leeloo of Movie, The Fifth Element,...when she clicked on the W and saw the horrors of what Wars do. She answered Korbin by say.."What's the use of saving life when you see what you do with it?."
I have tried to teach my children to have have respect for all living things and now that they are grown, they are doing their part to fulfill that.
My oldest daughter chose a life of helping the Mental Affected in a psychiatric facility. My youngest daughter chose the Elderly to work with. My son who is a computer programmer and hopes to achieve something with his knowledge that will make for a better world in the future. He also nearly broke me up when he was younger when we lived on a farm.
He loves animals!! We ended up at one time when he was 13 with 15 cats, kept bringing stray cats home, a yard full of chickens, a friend gave us the chickens because he was moving and couldn't keep them. One of the chickens was one he saved that fell off of a chicken truck. A baby raccoon, he found, maybe a few days old, very tiny, and that little raccoon nearly tore my house up as he got older and got into more. 2 dogs, a hamster, a pet rat, two chip monks and a parakeet. He also fed a white deer in the edge of the woods. He's 30 now, with wife and family , but still drags in a stray cat or dog. He just about gone as far as he can now in adopting animals. I also adopted a stray cat too. Great thread...edit on 8-3-2011 by ellieN because: spelling
Also have started the process of becoming vegetarian...that has been..so.. extremely hard. I still eat the by products, such as eggs, milk, cottage cheese..etc... I can't seem to shake all of it off. Not sure I can do it, but trying to anyway.edit on 8-3-2011 by ellieN because: added to..

The cure is to eradicate corporatism. Problem solved. Once that occurs, this planet becomes sustainable once again.
Also; proper education and spirituality. You can be spiritual without being religious. A moneyless society is really the best way to go, but society is too dependent on it.. makes me wonder if it could ever happen.edit on 7-3-2011 by disfugured because: Forgot to add something
