What is the world coming to ?!?
Tuesday, November 30, 2010
I see so many things and I read so many articles that sometimes I just
want to throw my hands up and cry.
Is it time to give up on humanity?
I can't count how many times, when stopped at a red light, I see cars around me throw their trash into the street.
Trust me- I have quite a few 'lazy' tendencies, but even I can manage to collect any trash that I have in my car and carry it to a trash can that I pass during the day. Seriously- is it that difficult to find a trash can. I seem to find them any time I need one.
But the thing that has just had me on the edge of tears this morning was an article I saw online about a grandmother who tossed her granddaughter off a 6 floor walkway at some mall in Virginia. The poor little girl died.
I can not imagine what would come over this woman to make her do such a thing. My husband and I decided to not have children- but if someone came to us and said that she was going to murder her child because she could not 'handle it'- well we would take in that child and any other that we needed to.
The two examples are so far apart and yet so similar. What makes it okay for anyone to 'throw away' something without taking into consideration the consequences.
It makes me sad.
