Sometimes I think that people in their old age or with "natural" terminal illnesses are the lucky ones. It kind of makes me sick thinking about what I
could potentially see in my lifetime.
The sad truth, like another poster said, is that people are selfish and could care less what happens to any other innocent person not immediately in
front of them. Maybe one day enough people will grow a pair to actually do something about this, until then I'm not sure if anything can even be done.
If people truly are this indifferent to such atrocity, we just have to wait and let history teach us the same lesson over and over again until we
finally get it. No one person will accomplish anything.
People are held in a cell for their entire lives (which I consider a form of torture), because of imaginary lines that don't actually exist and crimes
that don't have any victim. People are beaten, killed, raped and subjected to all different manners of abuse solely because of psychopathic thoughts
in another persons mind, be it religious or mental illness. People are ripped away from their loved ones, battered, downtrodden, hurt, tortured and
slaughtered for no better reason than someone's ego. If you could feel the pain of these people as if it was your own, you would probably have a
seizure and be insane for the rest of your life. The anguish caused by governments is no more than a step up from anguish caused by an individual, it
all comes from the same place: human nature.
So the next time you think about doing something out of spite, greed or hatred, the next time you get mad or decide to "mean mug" or belittle someone,
stop for a second and know where that path leads. With everything you do you create the future world for our children to live in.
