This morning I awoke to news reports of yet another mass shooting. Initially, I thought it was a follow-up report of another shooting, which was reported a couple of days ago. It wasn’t. I remember a time when such incidents would be considered so horrific, news outlets would break-in with the reports, and there would be a nationwide outcry and memorials to follow. Sadly, these stories have now become so common that they’re not even considered the ‘top story’ of the day, any longer. Are we as a nation becoming desensitized to these tragedies? And, what exactly is causing so many to take their anger out on not only the object of their frustrations, but, any and everyone in their path along the way?
In general, I never understood why any person would cause another person intentional harm. Revenge? Jealously? Or, just a lack of care of concern for people in general? It even saddens me when I see h*te comments on the internet. What is the point? What satisfaction comes from causing verbal and/or physical harm to another?
I may be looking through ‘rose-colored glasses’, but, I truly wish people would show more love and compassion to one another. As I stated in a previous post https://myforkedroad.wordpress.com/?s=4+letter+word it may be difficult to control your thoughts, but, acting on a negative thought has NO positive outcome, whatsoever. The more you let positive influences into your life, the more positive thoughts will fill your mind. SPREAD LOVE and God bless us all.
