Where have the times disappeared when you could count on the word of another? Where has fun without sarcasm and mockery disappeared?
I have never been in a natural disaster. I have never witnessed a hurricane or an earthquake. But if I did, somehow I have a feeling I would respect the powers of nature that were a part of that.
Yet, here I can read argues of whether or not the one h3ll of a big storm was hyped or not. Okey, everybody is intitled to their opinion but... Come on! It was big, it caused damage!
And it isn't only this issue, this is a global thing. I see it everywhere. Everyone has to be right, no-one wants to bend! Everybody has an urge to speak out, but nobody is willing to listen. Is this where we have come to? Can you apply a Gauss-curve on this too, where 3 percent on each end benefits from the stupidity of the 94 percent in the middle.
I think we have missed something here. The love we are capable of feeling doesn't have to stop in ourselves or our family. There is enough to share it wider. To everyone.
We don't always have to agree, but then again, who said to agree is an on-off switch where 'disagree' is the only possibility left.
Actually, there would be tons to write about but I'm so emotional right now I find it hard to hit the keyboard.
All I want to say is, if we act like this, we ain't worth everything we truly are.
Don't ever forget. We are you, you are us. As one we are everything.
